    Our/London vodka are no strangers to teaming up with chefs over the summer, with their Summer Series last year being a big hit. And this summer, they're at it again, teaming up with some really impressive chefs (and pairing with a bit of vodka, of course).  

    Lined up for the summer are:

    • Olia Hercules - Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 June
    • Lee Westcott (Typing
  • Blondies Kitchen are popping up in Carnaby with soft serve milk ice cream and cookies

    To us, very little says summer more than soft-serve ice cream (or just "soft ice cream" as we used to know it). So we're very much looking forward to the next pop-up from Blondies Kitchen, which takes their usual milk and cookies offering to the next level. 

    They'll be serving up the soft serve ice cream - made with Jersey milk and Guernsey cream - combined with a cookie topping (and their

  • Chick ‘n’ Sours is popping up in Brixton for one month

    South London fans of everyone's favourite fried chicken spot Chick ‘n’ Sours will, for one month, have less far to go the next time they need a fix. While the original Haggerston branch is being refurbed, they'll be popping up in Coldharbour Lane where Calcutta Street used to be.

    Upstairs will be the standard restaurant but downstairs they'll have a development kitchen working on new dishes for the Haggerston

  • A Wild West cocktail bar is coming to King's Road with Moonshine Saloon

    The new pop-up from the people who brought us the controversial Alcotraz is coming to the King's Road from May as they unveil Moonshine Saloon, a Wild West cocktail bar. Although as before, it'll be a BYOB event (and it sounds like that's a requirement to get in).

    This time, the immersive setting is "an undercover moonshine empire". Apparently, you'll be measured up for cowboy gear and a

  • Norigami

    The latest food mash-up is here as Norigami is launching a pop-up based on sushi and sandwich coming together. Based on the Japanese ‘sandwich’ Onigirazu, Norigami are adding global flavours to create the following:

    • The Vegan Curry – Sri Lankan-inspired potato curry, onion and spiced pickled carrots, coriander and parsley
    • The Miso Roasted Salmon – Japanese-inspired miso and sesame seed marinated
  • Wolfgang Puck is bringing a Chinois on Main pop-up to London

    Wolfgang Puck does like an exclusive pop-up. Last year he brought celebrity spot Spago's to London, and he's at it again. This time, it's the turn of his Santa Monica restaurant Chinois on Main, which is coming to Cut at 45 Park Lane for a three-day stint. 

    We're told it's "where Puck pioneered

    If you quite fancied the idea of trying Tom Sellers' Merry Men pop-up, but weren't fast enough off the bat to get yourself a table, then here's another approach.

    Sellers' three week pop-up in Bermondsey also features the Merry Men bar. It's a walk-in, 'no reservation' spot with room for up to 40.

    Crucially they'll be serving a

    London has no shortage of restaurants with decent views but once you've eaten at London in the Sky everything else must pale by comparison. After all, what bricks and mortar restaurant can compare to being winched 100ft up in the air so you can dine suspended over the city?

    For the past four years this restaurant has been popping up all over London and for 2018 it's trebling in size and putting on an impressive roster of

  • kilnlarb

    Later this month, Soho hotspot Kiln is going to become the centre of London's food universe with a collaboration that's bound to have folk queueing round the block. They're teaming up with Clapton bar P.Franco and Shoreditch's som saa to become a standing-room-only Larb Bar for one night only.

    Of course you can't do anything easy like buy tickets for this ahead of time. Nope, they're selling tickets on the door for £45 on the night itself.

    And although it

    Updated 15/3/18 with new dates and prices

    When it first started, Hot Dinners were among the first to enjoy eating in the House of Lords dining room when it opened to the public. And since then, it's become such a success that it's a regular event (and we've been back again ourselves).

    For just a few days during the recess, you can enjoy a weekday lunch at the Peers’ Dining Room. Chefs there have put together a seasonal 3-course menu

  • Michelin-starred street food trader Hawker Chan pops up at KERB in King's Cross

    Updated 14/3/18 with a first look

    So, since writing this story, it seems that the appearance of Hawker Chan at Kerb is going to be... rather busy for the duration. We popped over to KERB in King's Cross to check him out in action and - BLIMEY, the queue is a little on the epic

    The next street food folk to pop up at Selfridges Food Hall are Grill My Cheese. The Leather Lane purveyors of toasted cheese sourdough sarnies will be putting on a combo of classic dishes and Selfridges specials during their four week spot on Oxford Street.

    From their classics, you'll find G.M.C (farmhouse mature Cheddar, Farmhouse Cow Milk Mozzarella and bechamel sauce) £6 and their Insta-worthy Rainbow Toasties with beetroot, rocket and

    If you haven't already heard of it then you can be sure that at some point in 2018 you'll end up eating at Great Guns Social. This new Borough venture was opened in the middle of last year by the film company Great Guns in the space that used to be The Escape (and, before that, the Goldsmiths Arms). They've brought in Maria Elia to curate a really interesting mix of residencies and to date have already had Khalid Dahbi and food author and chef, John Gregory- Smith as well as
