A couple have sidestepped tradition with a unique gender reveal by ordering a snack pack with their child’s sex hidden beneath a mound of chips and kebab meat.
Turkish eatery Istanbul in Parramatta, in Sydney’s west, received an unusual request from soon-to-be parents keen to announce the gender of their child to loved ones.
‘Today we have something special that we are doing,’ the restaurant’s chefs said in a video posted on TikTok.
‘We have got a gender reveal. These guys wanted it in a snack pack.’
Istanbul in Parramatta, a Turkish eatery in Sydney’s west, recently made a ‘gender reveal snack pack’ (pictured) for an expectant couple
In the clip, the kitchen staff pour a basket of hot chips onto a sheet of paper before covering them with shredded cheese and meat.
‘This snack pack is going to have BBQ sauce,’ the worker says, drizzling on the topping before taking the platter out to the group.
‘They’ve started now. The results will come in in half an hour,’ he says.
A time lapse segment shows the group picking away at the meal until it disappears, leaving the metal plate visible through the grease-soaked paper.
‘Now it’s time for the reveal,’ the chef says, reappearing at the table to help them unveil the secret message.
The group countdown before lifting the tray to find a second platter hidden underneath, with the words ‘It’s a girl’ inscribed on the plate in black marker.
The crowd can be heard gasping in excitement at learning the expectant couple will soon be welcoming a daughter.

The video was circulated across social media platforms, leaving many in stitches over the twist on the typical gender reveal, in which couple’s normally host a party and pop a balloon filled with blue or pink confetti, depending on the child’s sex.
‘Romance isn’t dead,’ one person said.
‘I’m dead,’ another added alongside a laughing emoji.
‘Romance at its finest,’ a third comment read.
Some said they were inspired to use the unconventional method.
‘[Here is] an idea for the future,’ one person wrote.
Another added. ‘[This is] the future of gender reveals.’
