Susur Lee-inspired Toronto pop-up will charge extra if you drop anything

Aug 29 2017, 1:38 am

Toronto’s restaurant industry has responded to allegations of employee mistreatment at Susur Lee restaurants with outrage, a petition, and now this:

Whistleblowing Instagrammer and restaurant industry vanguard @chefgrantsoto is hosting a Susur Lee-inspired pop up event dubbed El Bogo Fring’s [sic] IOU Warehouse. And yes, this is a real event.

The pop-up, featuring food from Smoke Signals Barbecue, takes place at 17 Noble Street (near Queen West and Dufferin) on Sunday, September 10 from noon to 5 pm.

While the event is billing a $4.99 menu, “numbered and wrapped in Gucci ribbons,” Smoke Signals owner Nick Chen-Yin shares with Daily Hive that he’s “thinking of doing a pogo (Bogo Pogo) that’s enumerated,” as well as pineapple rib fried rice, and a rip on Susur Lee’s signature menu item, a “Soto Slaw” featuring 16 different ingredients.

No word on if organizers are kidding about charging extra “if you drop anything” or the option to be berated for an additional charge of $4.99.

When: September 10, noon to 6 pm
Where: 17 Noble Street
