The team behind ACME to open a new restaurant

'Kingdom of Rice' to open in Mascot, Sydney.

If the thought of 'Dirty Italian Disco' still lingers on your lips, then pull your pals together and ready yourselves for the Tennyson Hotel’s second pop-up.

Wheelin’ and dealin’ in Cambodian-style street food, you’ll join a rowdy crowd tucking into share-style plates and the coordinated chaos found in the markets of Phnom Penh. A calamity of colour and mismatched furniture switch up the space where 'Dirty Italian Disco' once lived.


The Tennyson’s new pop-up comes from joining forces with Mitch Orr and Cam Fairbairn, the team behind innovative inner east eatery, ACME. Working alongside head chef, Lillia McCabe, and front-of-house, Sophia Thach, expect a frenzy of flavour and fun as seafood, meats and vegetables are grilled over charcoal or tossed through a wok.

The self-serve Tennyson bottle shop prevails – dealing up Cambodian and Asian beers, natural wines and Southeast Asian-inspired cocktails.

Bookings will be available from October.
