Kongs: King of the Hill
Arcading, ping pong, burgers and beers in the city centre
There are two big openings in the city centre today. While we collectively curse Frankfurt's glad tidings, Brum can be fully jubilant about a Bristol-import. Kongs is bringing retro arcading, ping pong, beer and burgers to the old Chameleon site on Hill Street. Mortal Kombat, Streetfighter II, and Donkey Kong (of course) are part of the fixtures and fittings, with table footie, at 50p a game, to get you ready for permanent kitchen resident's Burger Theory, who have previously street-fooded in Brum. Double-bone wings (£4), loaded chilli-fries (£7.50) and lots of things with kimchi is what to expect from the menu, as well as patties like the Down n’ Dirty (£9), a burger with crispy bacon, cheddar and mozzarella, pink pickled onions, plus the wonderful sounding dirty burger sauce. Further details about the opening are still taking a while to load, but ping pong'll be just £5 for half an hour Thursday to Saturday and free the rest of the week, plus, like at the Bristol and Cardiff locations, there'll be ‘Play Your Vinyl’ nights where you can, err…you know. Ready player one?
