Pop-Up Dining in Penang by Dinesaur

Pop-Up dining is something new to Penangites. They are like temporary restaurants, and these restaurants often operate from a private home, former factory, private spaces and during festivals.

It is the combination of unique food and different space that spark our hearts, and you’ll get the recipe for an unforgettable dining experience. In fact, Penang appears to be ahead of the curve, and it’s the perfect city for it, because there is so much underutilized space.

Dinesaur X Chef Johnson

The first-ever pop-up dining hosted by the team – Dinesaur X Chef Johnson at Urban Spice Cafe.

The Urban Spice Cafe’s kitchen was taken over by talented Chef Johnson and their extended team. His experience in the kitchen extends to some of the world’s best and Michelin-starred restaurants. A chef on a mission, he is back to Penang – to infuse locally cultured ingredients with skilful preparation to creating spectacular food experiences.
