The Dram & Smoke Christmas 2018 Bothy Nights near London Bridge


Dram and Smoke are back for their traditional Scottish Christmas pop-up nights near London Bridge, from 11th - 21st December 2018.  Tickets cost £65 for a night of feasting and revelry, including a weclome drink, 4 course dinner, live music, Christmas games and lots more.  These are always excellent occasions, and several dates are sold out already - don't leave it too late to book!

"Seek shelter from the depths of winter within the indulgent sanctuary of Dram & Smoke Bothy Nights. Flickering lanterns, the aroma of pine and smoke, warming tartan blankets and a feast inspired by the spirit of Christmas and the best of Scottish produce await culinary nomads, wanderers and festive spirits alike. 
An enchanted beacon of warmth nestled at the end of a cobbled street near London Bridge, a warming hot toddy cocktail welcomes guests on their yuletide adventure. Whilst you won’t find nativity scenes and tinsel, the theatre of an open-kitchen, Christmas games, Karaoke, DIY DJ station and a profoundly supportive in-house policy on sing-a-longs mean that festive cheer is firmly on the menu. 
A fully-stocked, eggnog-free bar, large communal tables and a menu created with a boisterous banquet in mind, Bothy Nights is all about getting stuck in and hanging out with your neighbours. Roll up your sleeves, say goodbye to December soirées with floppy party hats, stale ambience and boring food and come get a little lost in the Highlands this Christmas.

The Calcutta Canteen Pop-up All Day Indian Cafe off Carnaby Street


Darjeeling Express' Asma Khan is opening a second site as a pop-up just off Carnaby Street, under the name Calcutta Canteen.  It will open as a 3 month pop-up on 28th November at 74 Broadwick Street, as an all-day cafe serving Pau buns, a bread roll similar to a brioche bun, stuffed with four kinds of fillings, cakes from Tarunima Sinha of My Little Cake Tin, and lots of teas, like masala chai.  Really looking forward to this one!

"Just before she appears on Netflix's Chef's Table, Darjeeling Express' Asma Khan has a new venture on the way. This time it's a North Indian and Bengali-inspired all-day café, appearing in Carnaby until mid-February. It first made an appearance in Fulham Market Halls' original line-up. 
On the cafe menu will be Pau buns, a bread roll similar to a brioche bun, stuffed with four kinds of fillings. They will be: vegan potato, cashew nut and curry leaves, vegetarian beetroot chop, masala omelette and beef mince, all served with green chilli, coriander chutney and tomato relish. We're told those buns date back to the 16th century when the Portuguese settled in Bengal and Goa and began baking bread. 
Being a cafe, the cakes are equally important, so Asma has partnered with self-taught baker Tarunima Sinha of My Little Cake Tin for her cakes. They'll celebrate her Indian heritage with masala chai flavoured bundt cake, Indian spiced shortbread cookies and pistachio biscuits.
As for drinks, the famed masala chai will be making an appearance, as will non-alcohol apple cider and tea from her ancestral tea garden in India, run by her aunt ("started by my great-great-grandfather in 1884 - one of 32 tea gardens he established"). On top of that, there will be a community wall where women can feature seasonal food and more."

When - 28th November 2018 - February 2019
Mon-Sat - 9am-5pm

Where - 74 Broadwick St, Soho, W1B 5PW
