Jimmy Lee, a celebrity chef from Glasgow, is expanding his Hong Kong Street Food brand, Salt and Chilli Oriental, with the opening of a location in Hamilton.
A mash-up of East and West, the new grab and go venture offers a taste of Hong Kong’s frills-free street food.
Salt and Chilli Oriental Hamilton is the third Scottish location for the award-winning chef’s growing brand, following Salt and Chilli in Glasgow’s West End and Salt and Chilli Edinburgh within Bonnie and Wild Marketplace at St James Quarter.
Chef Jimmy Lee said, “Hamilton is my hometown; I was born and raised here, attended St Johns 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”.
Jimmy, who owns one of Glasgow’s most known Cantonese restaurant, Lychee Oriental, is also a budding media personality and has appeared on the BBC’s Great British Menu, as a judge alongside Prue Leith on Channel 4’s My Kitchen Rules and with Kirstie Allsopp on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas as well as presenting his popular STV cookery series, Julie and Jimmy’s Hot Woks.
