Bang Street Food Spin-Off Trunk Road to Open in Darlinghurst

The team behind our favourite Bangladeshi street eatery are taking the flavours of the subcontinent up the road. Throwing open their doors next month at 163 Crown Street, Darlinghurst just a couple of hundred doors up from its predecessor, Trunk Road is a spin-off of Tapos Singha's Bang Street Food, and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.

Named after the two millennia old road that stretches through Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Trunk Road will be smaller and more casual than its predecessor. According to Gourmet Traveller, the menu will feature a number of different roti kebabs, nicknamed 'roadies', including a traditional variety full of tandoori lamb, lettuce, chilli achar and coriander yoghurt, as well as a breakfast version featuring pressed rice, banana, yoghurt and honey – and another made with bacon and fried egg. Side dishes will include tandoori chicken wings and chilli cheese fries topped with curry. Drool.

The drinks list will feature traditional loose-leaf and condensed milk teas, along with an array of beers, cocktails and local gins paired with Indian tonics. We're also kind of hoping they'll be serving Bang Street Food's rum spiked lassis.

Trunk Road is expected to seat 34 people across two floors. The interior will be designed by Bang co-owner Nicholas Gurney, who took his inspiration from '60s era India. That means waiters in white shirts and bow-ties: "smart and always with a bit of theatre," said Singha to Gourmet Traveller. The restaurant is expected to open in early November, but you can get your first taste of the menu at the Good Food Month Noodle Night Markets, which kicks off in Hyde Park next week.

Trunk Road will open at 163 Crown Street, Darlinghurst. Keep your eyes on the Bang Street Food Facebook for more information.
