Third Salt and Chilli outlet for Jimmy Lee
Jimmy Lee is expanding his Cantonese street food business and is opening in Shawlands, one of Scotland’s hippest neighbourhoods. Offering a taste of Hong Kong’s frills-free street food, Salt and Chilli Oriental Southside joins the original site in Glasgow’s West End, Salt and Chilli Oriental Edinburgh at St James Quarter and a pop-up venture in Glasgow Hamilton.
Work is currently underway to transform the former McFly’s Chicken into a takeaway and there will be the option to sit-in with a capacity for up to 60 guests when it opens to customers on Kilmarnock Road on Sunday, November 13th.
Dishes will include Tangy Peking Ribs and Chicken Satay with Spicy Dip to Bao filled Katsu Chicken or Pulled Aromatic Duck as well as the signature ‘Salt & Chilli Menu’ with options of Chicken, King Prawn, Crab, Calamari or Tofu Salt & Chilli – all served with Yutaka Slaw. The Salt and Chilli Oriental menu will be homely and hearty Cantonese with ‘small bites’ available for £5 and ‘big bites’ including Katsu Chicken Curry and Macau Beef Curry.
Chef Jimmy Lee shared his excitement ahead of the new arrival“Shawlands was recently named as one the coolest neighbourhoods in the world and I’m delighted that we’re able to expand our portfolio to Glasgow’ Southside. I live in the area so it’s a neighbourhood that my family and I know well – buzzing with activity and a multicultural community at its heart. With the opening of Salt and Chilli Oriental Southside this November, I hope to add something new to the incredible amount of food and entertainment options the area has to offer residents and visitors alike.”
Salt and Chilli Oriental Southside opens from Sunday 13th November at 67 Kilmarnock Road, Glasgow, G41 3YR
