Stellenbosch to welcome new Asian street food restaurant: Gochu Gang

Chef behind Eat Out Retail Capital Best New Restaurant, Darren Badenhorst together with friend and accomplished restaurateur, Steven Comrie, will be opening a new street food restaurant in the heart of Stellies.

Aptly titled Gochu Gang, in an ode to the popular Korean spice Gochujang, the new restaurant specialises in Asian street food, offering a range of classic dishes such as dim sum, dumplings, sushi, bao buns and yakitori, also known as skewered grilled chicken.

The core food philosophy behind the new restaurant is to offer diners a vibey “social hangout with fast, affordable and tasty food, comprising some of the most popular street foods from the high-paced Asian food scene,” says Darren.

The dishes available are Asian-inspired street food with an elevated twist, but Darren says that “personal tweaks” will be made to the dishes to make the offering “even more diverse and engaging”.

The Asian street food offering extends beyond the food and into the décor and ambience of the new spot. Echoing the theme of Tokyo nightlife, Gochu Gang will feature bright neon signs, interactive games such as air hockey, music and live entertainment.

“The dark walls with bright colours and bamboo make this a simple and edgy space to get fast food and socialise with friends,” says Darren.

The restaurant officially opens on 24 July and will be located at Shop 38, 43 Andringa Street, Stellenbosch.

Open from 11am till late, 7 days a week, the restaurant is not taking bookings and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Gochu Gang’s food offering will also be available on local online ordering platforms.
