Selina Periampillai's taking Four O Nine’s kitchen for a six course pop up menu full of things you’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce.

Bit like her last name.

Food Through The Ages

Metaphorically step back in time with Food Through The Ages and dine in period rooms of The Geffrye Museum with fare of the associated era. Fare like Quail egg and bacon on toast, served up with intriguing stories and fascinating bygone snippets by historian Kate Colquhoun

You may even meet your future other half.

And the rest would be history.

Donostia Social Club

Donostia Social Club, the Basque inspired baby blue and white street food van you may have seen pottering London’s cobble stoned alleys have an announcement.

They're leaving….

….their van in the garage for two months and swapping it for a kitchen residency at The King & Co pub, Clapham. Wherein they will plate up daily changing specials, Basque inspired Sunday sharing brunches and roasts alongside craft brews, draft ales and real ciders.

Details: October – 30th November | The King & Co, SW4 7BZ



Jude’s is a family ice cream business out of Hampshire. If Jude’s decided to celebrate the start of Chocolate Week by giving out free mochagatos (chocolate made with 100% cocoa solids doused in hot espresso) then – assuming every person in London is going to want one - how much milk will their cows need to produce in order to avoid them running out of stock?


Who cares: Jude’s are giving out free Mochagatos.

Details: 13th and 14th October | The Foot of the King’s Cross Blvd

The Pearl

The most fun we have every month is deciding what’s a permanent restaurant, what’s a pop up restaurant, what’s a semi-permanent pop up and what’s a temporary restaurant.

It’s such a hoot. As you can well imagine.

We actually got an email yesterday about a place being described by its owners as a “permanent pop up”.  Ignored it, obviously.

Anyway The Pearl was an easy call: semi-permanent pop up.

Launching in the conservatory at the top of the Dead Dolls House this Friday, with views over Hoxton Square, it’s run by the popular Check On team and will be serving up Great British fare (cooked by the very talented Terry Edwards) from Wednesday to Friday each week.

Details:  April – December 2014 | 35 Hoxton Square, N1 6NN

Breddos Tacos 

On 11th April street food favourites Breddos Tacos are commencing a new, 6 month residency at Hoxton’s TripSpace, combining their American / Mexican small plates with cocktails and a weekly US-style brunch. 

Details: Wednesday-Sunday from 11th April – October 2014| TripSpace, Arch 339-340, Acton Mews, E8 4EA
