20ft Monster restaurant pop-up is back

Chef Johan van der Walle and front-of-house extrordinare Sam Maher decided to create their itinerant pop-up restaurant over a game of frisbee – the sport of kings.

Maher says they wanted to create a pop-up with "good prices, nice music, a casual atmosphere and a place where people can just come and have a lot of fun."

That's exactly what they did, and they were rewarded by having the last six dinners sell out.

The last installment saw them serve an American-inspired menu with some Asian flavours thrown in, all served against a backdrop of bad Korean monster movies with cheap beers thrown into the mix.

This month? “Well Johan has just come back from San Francisco where he was tasting a lot of different food trucks and pop-up restaurants over there, so we are trialling some of the stuff he tasted in San Fran,” Maher says.

Expect plenty of spice, five courses and a free drink at the beginning and cheap alcohol throughout the night. Book it.
