With their own lingo and a range of signature chants such as “Bump the Cheese up” (add parmesan) and “Can I get a Fire” (getting orders out super-fast), a love of fried chicken plus innovative dishes such as ‘Gujon’ Chicken (strips served with Asian slaw, skinny fries, aioli, sweet chilli sauce and a watermelon slice), and the unforgettable Gua Bao (a Taiwanese steamed bun filled with the good stuff and sriracha hot sauce mayo), this place provides maximum satisfaction for fans of the chicken. A few vegetarian dishes have been introduced to the menu to console your non-chicken eating friends, but the real winners on the menu are still the chicken dishes.
The dishes are accompanied by a range of icy fresh fruity jam jars, each served with artistic flourish. In short they make street food look extra pretty. Order a Watermelon Crush or Elderflower Soda to wash it all down.
Co-owners chef Andrew Leeuw, and self-taught chef Hezron Louw (a trained accountant who took his street food skills to SABC3’s Top Chef SA competition) share a love of food, and influences on the menu range from the American South to Hong Kong’s food stalls.
