A BFG-Inspired Pop-Up Restaurant Is Opening in Sydney
Yes, it will be serving snozzcumbers.
June 15, 2016
Sydney sweet spot KOI Dessert Bar is going whimsical this month with a one-day pop-up restaurant inspired by Disney's upcoming blockbuster, The BFG. The restaurant, aptly named Rotsome, will open for one day only on Monday, July 4, just a few days prior to the film's Australia-wide release on June 30.
The menu is the brainchild of Masterchef 2015 favourite, Reynold Poernomo, and the immersive dining experience is meant to stimulate your tastebuds and imagination alike. The details of the "deliciously disgusting" three-course degustation is still under lock and key, but will include a "snozzcumber" and some form of steaming green goo drink. Rotsome follows Sydney conventions with a strict no reservations policy; the restaurant will run on a first-come first-served basis from 1-6pm.
All you grown-up BFG fans out there will have to hold your horses, though. As part of the deal, all "giants" (aka adults) will need to be accompanied by at least one "childler" (a small child over six years old) to get a table. Now's the time to suggest your siblings/nephews/nieces/cousins really need a day off school — you best get calling now before your brother beats you to it.
The Rotsome pop-up restaurant will be open for one-day on Monday, July 4 at Koi Dessert Bar, 46 Kensington Street, Chippendale from 1pm until 6pm. For more information, visit the Facebook event.
