We Are Kerala: Pope-adom
This once-off Keralan butter chicken pop-up is set to spice up your weekend.
Mischa Tropp's travelling South Indian kitchen is making a special cameo appearance to put a little pep in your step this week. This Friday, August 20 and Saturday, August 21, We Are Kerala is set to take over the CBD's Pope Joan while the eatery is closed for lockdown. The takeaway pop-up is set to hero a much-loved culinary favourite: butter chicken.
Tropp will be firing up Pope Joan's woodfired grill to dish up a special $30 menu, starring his signature butter chicken curry along with a vegetarian-friendly paneer version. Also included with each feed are classic sides like saffron cumin rice, a dal makhani, raita, pickled onions and naan.
To claim your curry, jump online and pre-order before Thursday night, August 19. You'll then be able to pick up your feast from the restaurant between 12–3pm on Friday and Saturday, or opt for $15 delivery to select local suburbs on Friday only.
