A familiar pairing of pies and Indonesian street food returns to East Boston in January. Kaki Lima, a popular pop-up from chef Retno Pratiwi and partner Peter Gelling, will return to KO Pies at the Shipyard (256 Marginal St.) starting on January 17, offering a limited menu in addition to the Australian hand pies served regularly at KO Pies, according to Boston Magazine.
Kaki Lima has been a familiar presence in Boston’s restaurant world for several years, popping up all around the city and even completing a four-month residency at Wink & Nod’s culinary incubator in the South End this past spring and summer. Pratiwi and Gelling have since taken the pop-up west, appearing at events in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland.
While Kaki Lima has previously run its pop-up at KO Pies on the restaurant’s off days, its offering of several dishes will now be offered alongside the pies, from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
