The Sri Lankan snack stall gets a permanent home

In 2016 Ruvanie de Zoyza helped to introduce Sydney to hoppers – a Sri Lankan-inspired street-food snack which sees egg and other fresh toppings encased by a small thin crepe of rice and coconut milk. 

Now, after the success of her market stalls de Zoyza and a pop-up at the Tramsheds Hopper Kadé now has a permanent home in Darlinghurst. The menu has tradtional styles like the classic, which comes with a dollop of relish, coconut sambol and a free range egg, and the Dahling Harbour, which uses a special dhal recipe with grilled zucchini. There are also options to build your own – meat, veggo and sweet options are available – or order a kid-sized hopper for tiny mouths. You can also hop in throughout he morning for Lankan jaffles, roti wraps and sweets such as Chai-spiced banana loaf.
