A Bruce Lee-Inspired Dumpling and Beer Pop-Up Is Coming to The Rocks
Kansas City Shuffle are doing dumps paired with Young Henrys beer and kitsch Chinese paraphernalia.
What do dumplings and Bruce Lee have in common? Everyone loves them. Seriously, give me a person who doesn't love a bit of dramatised karate and a plate of xiao long bao. Perhaps that's why they've both found their way into Sydney's newest pop-up: a Bruce Lee-inspired dumpling and beer bar.
The pop-up is being spearheaded by Kansas City Shuffle, a cafe that opened in The Rocks last year. Starting on Thursday, March 17 and running for 12 weeks, the pop-up will operate out of the space next door every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 4-7pm. There will be an array of delightful dumps on offer, including pork buns and other steamed varieties — all matched with Young Henrys beer, which will be on tap. Bruce Lee comes in the form of (non-edible) mini figurines, which, with fortune cats and lanterns, will make up the kitsch Chinese restaurant interior.
After the dumplings are all done and dusted (i.e. eaten), the space will be used for Kansas City Shuffle's full restaurant and bar concept, which will be an expansion of the cafe. Going by their epic fried chicken burger, it's set to be pretty tasty. But first, get in on those dumplings as swiftly (and as stealthily) as a Bruce Lee karate chop.
Kansas City Shuffle's dumpling and beer pop-up is located at 195 Gloucester Street, The Rocks, and will start on Thursday, March 17 and run for 12 weeks. It will be open Wednesday to Friday from 4-7pm. For more info, keep an eye on their Facebook page.
