Glory was a short-lived but astoundingly memorable Asian street food style hangout launched by chef Nick Scott, that briefly opened on Melville’s busy 7th Street. While that bricks and mortar Glory has gone, Glory’s renowned dishes – from ramen to crispy chicken and cucumber pickle – live on as a pop-up in an eclectically kitted out suburban home in nearby Westdene. 

When you drive up there's little to indicate that behind the walls of this suburban house is a restaurant, except for a small sticker on the buzzer at the gate. As this is essentially a house there's no guarded parking so we recommend taking an Uber and with limited seating, prior booking is advised. You can also pre-order takeaway boxes of Glory's famous fried chicken meals to eat at home.

Once inside the gates you'll be welcomed up to the first floor where a pretty terrace overlooking the small garden leads into the home's open-plan living area, which has been transformed into a ten table restaurant filled with house plants, vintage posters and elegant mid-century furniture. 

Glory's pop-up menus take inspiration from south-east Asian ingredients and all the herbs and vegetables used are sourced from a farm just outside Joburg that is owned and managed by a farmer of Thai heritage. This means that all of Glory's seasonal pop-up menus (which run for eight weeks at a time) are based on seasonal, and predominantly Asian, produce.

Chef Nick Scott's Asian cooking skills are legendary. “As a cook”, he says, “farming is at the core of our food supply chain. It gives us a way to manage our ingredients and develop a new alphabet. Caring about how ingredients are farmed and the overall biodiversity of the environment is at the forefront of our ethos.”
