Antto Melasniemi's Finnish Pop-up Restaurant Tënu near Leicester Square


This December two Finns - Antto Melasniemi and Klaus Haapaniemi - have created a pop-up restaurant Tënu at One Leicester Street, just off Leicester Square.  Open from 6pm each day until the 31st (not Christmas Day or Boxing Day), it's bringing the tastes of Melasniemi’s successful Helsinki restaurants Ateljé Finne and Kuurna to London.  See a sample menu here

"Tënu is a conceptual restaurant based on ancient Finnish mythology and folklore. 
The restaurant is created by artists and food specialists Antto Melasniemi and Klaus Haapaniemi, the duo behind the travelling food, design and art event HelYes! The new venture is targeted at adventurous Londoners, late-night shoppers and curious travellers looking for a festive destination that goes way beyond the usual Christmas drinks and office parties.
Set against a backdrop story of mythical landscapes with strange creatures drawn by Haapaniemi, the food takes its inspiration from the Eastern part of Finland with local ingredients such as reindeer, berries and mushrooms, following the type of menu served in Melasniemi’s successful Helsinki restaurants Ateljé Finne and Kuurna.
Melasniemi and Haapaniemi are also launching new gin label Tënu, distilled in Helsinki and with a taste risen from ancient Finnish forests and urban wild botanicals."

When - 6th - 31st December 2014, 6pm until late
Closed 25th & 26th

Hank's Po' Boys Pop-up at Kitchenette's Restaurant near Kensal Green


Street food specialists Hank's Po' Boys is now in residence at Kitchenette's space at The Dock Kitchen in Portobello Docks, W10, for daily snacks and lunches and dinners from Thursday to Saturday.  Expect a tasty fusion of New Orleans meets London - full details below.

"Fresh from a summer at Model Market, Hank's is moving to W10 where we'll be serving up our take on a Louisianan feast - it'll be where New Orleans meets London. By day there'll be po' boys, salads and chowder, packing layers of Creole and Cajun flavour into the lunch options we're bringing to Ladbroke Grove.
By night we'll be introducing you to some of the incredible dishes New Orleans have to offer - from French Quarter classics like Cajun butter shrimp and buttermilk fried chicken, to dishes of our own invention, such as our famous crawfish croquetas & chaurice sausage meatballs. The menu will change weekly, so keep an eye out in future weeks for fried oysters, rich gumbos and indulgent etouffee - and that's just for starters.
We sure hope you'll join us as we count down to christmas and head into the new year, NOLA style. That's with a bit of jazz, a lot of soul and flavour aplenty."

Grub Club's 'Bring Your Own Christmas' Christmas Lunch near London Bridge


In London on your own?  Then celebrate Christmas with Grub Club & Airbnb and their Sharing Christmas party at lunchtime on Christmas Day.  Tickets are just £5, but you've got to bring a bottle and a dish you've cooked; then everyone can get stuck in.  The event ends at 3.30pm, but I suspect there may be a few heading to the pub after that...


"Bring Your Own Christmas is our solution to snoring in front of the Queen’s Speech. It’s simple: you bring your own dish, a bottle of the good stuff, and join in on what will be an excellent excuse for a party. Any Christmas traditions you want to bring along will be greatly welcomed, but soggy sprouts and Cliff Richard are strictly banned!
This is a perfect opportunity to get stuck into some good grub, pull a cracker with some lovely new people and generally share in some festive fun. 
We’ve put together an all-star ‘Sharing Is Caring’ team to make this day extra special: airbnb are very generously providing the space, a beautiful flat in London Bridge, owned by the amazing group Lumiere London. 
So join us in Bringing Your Own Christmas (BYOC) and making this a truly amazing event."

When - Thursday 25th December, 12.30pm - 3.30pm

Where - 4 Meara Street, SE1 1TE

Tickets - £5 from Grub Club here

'Pulled's Street Food Residency at The Duke's Head in Highgate


The Duke's Head in Highgate is hosting a rotating series of street food traders in its kitchen, to change each month, following on from the year-long run from Bell & Brisket.  For December it's Pulled, who, as the name suggests, specialise in slow-roasted, pulled meats.  Go try some - and while you're there enjoy the Duke's Head's excellent range of beers & other drinks.

"Food enthusiasts, amateur chefs, but most importantly professional fun lovers!! That pretty much explains us and the journey to launching Pulled…..
Simply put we love food (and a little drink or two) and our world is centred around ‘what is for dinner?’ It all started with a recipe for Conchinita Pibil, a very large piece of Pork and a long slow roast – OMG I cannot tell you what a taste sensation it was!!!
The love affair with pulled meats was born!!
Bbq pulled pork has become such a loved and firm favourite, what we wanted to do was take it further with different recipes & meats and I guess make it easier, by simply roasting in an oven (….or perhaps the truth was more, we live in a 3rd floor flat in London, so a slow cooking BBQ was out of the question!!).
After many recipes (and some quite inedible failures) later, many friends tested upon, many kilos eaten, we had the thought of why would other people not love this as much as us? Let’s take our meat to the world!!!! There was only one solution ‘redundancy’ – ok was not really my decision but fact was it meant the idea could actually come to life!!
It truly came to life though when the name ‘Pulled’ was suggested, suddenly there was an almost endless list of laughter inducing (and some really inappropriate) names for menu ideas! It was the perfect mix for us..."

When - Monday - Sunday, lunch and dinner

Where - The Duke's Head, 16 Highgate High St, London N6 5JG
