Penang Shack describes itself as an “occasional Malaysian pop-up,” which is pretty apt. Full disclosure: it’s run by The Infatuation Austin staff writer Nicolai McCrary. The pop-up happens every month or so with menus in the past including nasi lemak and chicken satay. There’s also a very good curry laksa that comes meal kit-style, in which you need to cook the noodles separately. It’s one of the few places in Austin that you can actually get curry laksa - it’s on Peached Tortilla’s dine-in menu, and Kinda Tropical has run it as a special in the past. All proceeds go to different local causes, including the Austin Justice Coalition and the League Of Women Voters Austin. The next pop-up will be in mid-January. Follow on Instagram for the latest.
