Hamilton homecoming for Lee

GLASGOW chef Jimmy Lee is expanding his Salt & Chilli Oriental street food brand with the opening of a new outlet in Lee’s home town of Hamilton.

Salt & Chilli Oriental Hamilton will offer the same ‘grab and go’ proposition as the Glasgow venue, serving a combination of classic and reimagined Cantonese-style street food.

The menu includes dishes such as Zing Zing ribs with Peking sauce; chicken satay with spicy peanut dip; and chilli and salt wings as well as a selection of bao – filled dumplings – with fillings including aromatic duck and panko chicken.

Lee, who also operates Glasgow restaurant Lychee Oriental, said: “Hamilton is my hometown; I was born and raised here, attended St John’s and Hamilton Grammar School, so it’s extra special for me to open my third location there.

“Our menu features delicious Hong Kong-style street snacks as well as comforting British-Cantonese cuisines that we all love and adore.”
