When Allen and his wife visited Taiwan as children, they instantly fell in love with Taiwanese street food and wanted to share their experience with New Zealanders. Allen established the Kai night market stall, an Asia eatery, and the stall quickly became famous for its delicious XL Fried Chicken and Crispy Kumara Fries. 


From modest beginnings in 2016, the Kai Eatery has grown into a successful franchise with many eateries and one in Ellerslie Store located close to the Chinese Embassy.
