Originally landing as a month-long pop-up at Ostro, 80s-inspired street food eatery Sneaky Snacky has found a permanent home inside K' Road's Lim Chhour food hall.
The nostalgic pop-up is the brainchild of Min Seak Kang, a senior chef at Peter Gordon's The Sugar Club and creator of Orphans Kitchen's collaborative Korean pop-up dinner JANCHI.
The Sneaky Snacky concept sees Kang lean heavily on 80s culture, spotlighting 'vaporwave' meme video art and music from Korea, Japan and Hong Kong.
He says the new space at Lim Chhour will make it far easier to create new dishes under his kitschy Asian-inspired street food banner. The menu will star more variations of his infamous doughnut burger, including Nashville hot chicken and a seasonal vegetarian option — first up: miso-grilled aubergine. The headline menu item is the Original Glazed Donut Burger which comes stacked with a wagyu patty, a kimchi tempura fritter, Thai basil, bacon and cheddar.
There will also be Nashville hot chicken wings available as servings of one, four or a ten-piece bucket. The sides list boasts fries with a dusting of MSG, Chinese cucumber salad, coleslaw and glazed doughnuts.
The official opening for Sneaky Snacky is pencilled for next week. It will be open from 11am to 9pm inside Lim Chhour food hall at 184 Karangahape Road.
