The MasterChef: The Professionals winner will be launching his new street food concept as a permanent resident at Digbeth Dining Club’s Hockley-based venue from 5 October

Following the huge success of his 4-month residency in Hockley, Dan Lee has announced he will be a permanent street food vendor at Hockley Social Club from 5th October, launching his new venture ‘Dai Pai Dong’.


The term ‘dai pai dong’ originates from Hong Kong and is used to describe a type of open-air food stall.


Described by Michelin-star celebrity chef Marcus Wareing as “a star in the making”, Dan’s menu will showcase brand-new dishes such as BBQ Szechuan Lamb Flatbread, Soy Steamed Chicken with Jasmine Rice and Lap Cheong, Brownie with Milk Miso Caramel and Homemade Ice Cream, Salt and Chilli Chicken Wings, and more South East Asian-inspired dishes. This new menu will be available from Thursday, 5th of October.


Since winning MasterChef, Dan returned home and has spent the last year delving into Birmingham’s culinary scene. He has collaborated with some of the city’s culinary stars, including Stuart Deeley, another MasterChef winner, and Eat Vietnam, a Vietnamese street food concept.


Dan said, “These past four months at Hockley Social Club have been incredibly exciting. I’ve felt such a close connection to our guests and built a strong bond with the team. Sharing my initial Asian-inspired dishes has been a dream, and the team and I can’t wait to serve up our new Dai Pai Dong menu.”


Hockley Social Club’s Jack Brabant said: “Having Dan and his team in over the summer has been an absolute joy and the quality of what they have been producing has been one of the best offerings in the city right now. It was an absolute no-brainer for us to offer him a permanent spot and me and the team are buzzing to see what his new menu has in store for us!”


Find Dai Pai Dong by Dan Lee at Hockley Social Club every week, Thursday to Sunday.
