SWG3 are delighted to announce, pop-up restaurant outfit Ka Pao will take up residency at the Acid Bar, the venue’s brand new bar and restaurant.
The Acid Bar, unveiled just last month, will host Ka Pao for an initial 4-week period, offering food lovers the opportunity to enjoy South East Asian-inspired cuisine in the stylish Finnieston setting.
The first evening residency will take place on Thursday 14th June and will run every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until July 7th. Tickets cost £30.00 and can be booked online now here.
Mutley, SWG3 Founder & Director, said “Residencies are a popular concept in London, but haven’t really been developed here in Glasgow. People are always looking for new dining experiences and Scotland's street food scene has never been stronger, so hopefully this is something new and exciting for foodies to get their teeth into.”
Ka Pao takes its guidance from the cooking of Southeast Asia. While the dishes on offer at the Acid Bar will reflect some very traditional cookery techniques from the region, others will fuse more modern methods and influences. Some of the dishes from the specially created sharing menu include ‘Coley cakes and Thai basil’, ‘White crab and kalamansi lettuce wrapper’ and ‘Lamb neck, green peppercorn and lemongrass’.
Ka Pao have previously held pop-up events at Café Strange Brew, Yardworks Festival and SWG3’s outdoor gigs in the Galvanizers Yard. Ka Pao Head Chef Sandy, who recently returned from working at the Michelin-starred Nahm in Bangkok said, “SWG3 is a real incubator for creativity in Glasgow, so we are very excited to be joining the community down here and to call the venue home for the next few weeks.”
Similar to SWG3’s rotating exhibition programme, the Acid Bar will welcome different guest restaurants and street food vendors throughout the year. The programme, which will run indefinitely, is designed to showcase the very best of Scotland’s food scene.
The Acid Bar is the first on-site food and drink outlet for SWG3 and also offers up a range of cocktails, coffees and lunch dishes throughout the day, seven days a week.
