Kid Curry Online Restaurant to Open a Venue in Fortitude Valley

Kid Curry launched at the height of the pandemic lockdown in April as an online restaurant serving only flavourful packed meals for a limited pick up window at its sister site, Happy Boy. Six months since its launch and the eatery will soon open its very own brick and mortar venue in Fortitude Valley.

Cameron and Jordie Votan opened Kid Curry as a way to keep their Happy Boy (Chinese cuisine) and Snack Man (Asian fusion) workers employed during a global health crisis. Now, they have an opportunity to expand and create a mini-dining precinct under the fairylit trees in  East Street.

Kid Curry will take over the former site of Project Store, next door to Happy Boy and Snack Man. The pair plans to revitalise this section by setting up an outdoor area where their regulars can comfortably dine al fresco. 

With the debut of the permanent eatery, targeted for January 2021, Kid Curry will bring new dishes featuring the flavours of Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand, as curated by chef Tom Swapp.

Snack Man to Expand in 2019 with Famous Chinese Bite-Sized Dishes

Snack Man, Fortitude Valley’s bespoke wine bar, will expand to include larger and more hearty dishes, with the same flavoursome, on-style Chinese eats as their sister venue Happy Boy.

The wine bar, which opened next to Happy Boy in November 2018, only had five bite-sized dishes when it was launched. There were barbecue chicken cha siu bao, pork and prawn dumplings, crispy chicken ribs, seasonal mushroom, and the crowd favourite salt and pepper prawn.

Snack Man finally unveiled its full menu in January 2019. Cameron Votan, co-owner of the wine bar, said the menu comprises all small plates representing food that China is famous for and it will be the Votans’ “favorites from across all Chinese regions.”

Guests could choose from 20-food item menu that complements Happy Boy’s more work-focused menu. Guests could expect Taiwanese Fried Chicken on Milk Bun and Prawn and Pork Wontons in Chilli Broth.

Votan said guests could come in and do dinner. Aside from picking the menu for the wine bar, she is also in charge of sourcing bottles that cannot be easily found anywhere else. Unlike the Happy Boy that only serves Australian wines, they import wines from other countries.
