Ever heard of Bunny Chow?
A South African fast-food favourite, the dish involves a hollowed-out loaf of white bread filled with delicious curry… and now you can give it a go right here in Cork.
Local chef Chris Prinsloo is opening Gazbo, a brand new South African Indian street food pop-up in the Toll Booth at St Luke’s Cross this Thursday, with two varieties of ‘bunny’ on the menu.
Chris, who is originally from South Africa, has been living and working as a chef in Cork for the last 20 years. A Montenotte local, he spotted an opportunity to dish up the delicious cuisine of his homeland in a unique spot when the Toll Booth was vacated by its previous occupant, a florist.
Built around 1880, the octagonal toll booth was originally put in place to collect a tax on livestock and produce entering the city. Tolls were abolished in 1927, but the charming booth has been renovated in recent years by Cork City Council and is now a symbol of the village.
This week you can swing by and take home a Lamb Curry or Vegetarian Curry (both €15.50) with limited portions available for the launch.
Gazbo will open on Thursday, February 18th and Friday, February 19th from 4pm – 9pm. You can place your order for collection beforehand on 0899 791 679.
