D’Munchies is owned by Richard Chand and chef David Pyne, who’s worked in kitchens around Sydney for 11 years. “It’s pretty obvious how the idea came about. It’s a very loud statement, but that’s sort of what we’re about,” Pyne said to Broadsheet.
Decked out as if it was a dispensary – a two-metre-tall marijuana mural dominates one of the walls – the restaurant doesn’t actually sell marijuana, as it is still illegal in Australia. Instead it offers a menu that only those high as a kite could dream of – and could likely stomach.
Ravioli nachos, three cheese hotdogs, ice cream loaded with sugary cereal, something called a “Chicken N Cheetos” burger, and if that’s not enough, you can add hash browns, bacon, and of course more cheese to the dish.
According to Mashable, D’Munchies is open weekly from Wednesday to Sunday; their hours currently read: 4:20 to late. It’s still new, but the restaurant is sure to be a hit. Perhaps it means an end to scouring the cupboards late at night searching for the perfect stoner hunger fix.
