Richmond's Kong might be best known for its modern, Korean-inspired barbecue fare, but come Sunday, April 29, it's in for quite the culinary shake-up, with acclaimed chef Duncan Welgemoed throwing a little taste of Africa into the mix.
Welgemoed is being smuggled away from his usual gig — heading up Adelaide's renowned Africola — to join Kong head chef Benjamin Cooper for this very special interstate kitchen collaboration.
On offer for just one lunch service and two dinner sittings, the pair is set to dish up a vibrant, seven-course menu that's packed full of big flavours. We're talking wok-fried edamame and capers teamed with a fiery zhoug, slow-cooked short rib with a traditional African poitje, and a dreamy dessert of smoked chocolate mousse, coconut, banana and dulche de leche. For $75, your feast even includes a cocktail on arrival.
Find yet more flavour-packed treats in the specially curated Moondog lineup, featuring beers like the Thunderlips Yuzu Red IPA, limited-edition choc-orange brew The Jaffawocky, and some very wallet-friendly $5 tinnies.
