Lockdown's over, restrictions continue to ease and group catch-ups are flooding diaries everywhere. And if you're searching for a northside dinner destination that doesn't come with any pesky time limits, this one's for you.

For a limited time, Fitzroy favourite Rice Paper Scissors has opened the doors to new pop-up dining room and function space, Aunty Kim's House. Here on Johnston Street, guests can book a table for ten or more and settle in to feast on the restaurant's renowned modern Southeast Asian fare — without having to worry about clearing out at a certain time.

Set to stick around until the end of January, the set-up is primed for long, lazy festive catch-ups, with various menus starting from an easy $65 per person and a cheeky $40 drinks package also on offer. Expect signature plates like sugarcane prawns, roast duck banh mi, Thai-style beef cheek curry with grilled pineapple, and the chargrilled corn slathered in salted coconut cream.

Got lots of mates? The entire venue can be booked out for groups of up to 80. Just note that deposits are required for all bookings and you'll need to give the team a heads up on your food and drink selections in advance.
