This will be followed by additional Le Bun classics to be revealed each week throughout the month (follow @LeBunUk for updates).
Wing Wednesdays will include a bucket of Old Blue Last beer and hot wings for just £20 and Weekend Brunches kick off with dishes such as Le Bun’s smashed avocado bun,the infamous Fried Chicken & Caviar Benedict and Le Cheeseburger Bloody Mary (complete with mini burger garnish).
The Sebright Arms is one of London’s finest small venues, brought to you by the team behind The Old Blue Last since 2017. Staying true to its roots, the pub continues to operate as a place to discover breaking acts, eat killer food, and choose from a wide selection of craft beers and ales.
A new cocktail menu will also be serving the likes of the Koko-Jito (white rum, Koko Kanu, mint, raspberries, soda), Angry Neighbour (vodka, Kwai Feh, lime) and Bright of Passage (gin, ginger liqueur, rhubarb bitters, Pago)."

Don Papa Rum's Casa Sugarlandia Filipino Pop-up in Shoreditch


Don Papa Rum is opening a 3 week Filipino pop-up at 46 Great Eastern Street on 22nd May 2019, featuring lots of rum, lots of cocktails, food from Filipino chefs Sarap, The Adobros, and Food with Mae, and even Karaoke nights.  There will also be two ticketed supper clubs - Food with Mae on Tues 28th May, and The Adobros on Weds 5th June.  This is going to be excellent!

"Casa Sugarlandia runs from 22nd May to 8th June, taking over a two-storey venue on Shoreditch’s Great Eastern Street, revamped as a fully set-designed space, offering Londoners a spectacular taste of the island of Sugarlandia in the Philippines via some of its customs, flavours and flora.  
Inspired by the real Filipino island of Negros, known locally as “Sugarlandia”, guests are encouraged to venture into a multi-sensory world where all is not as it seems.  Programme highlights include “Masked Karaoke”, hosted by international drag collective Sink The Pink, dining experiences from some of the capital’s leading names in Filipino cuisine and a bespoke menu of Don Papa house cocktails.
While the programme changes weekly, there are some mainstays, and those with a penchant for Karaoke will be able to jump on the microphone, Filipino-style each week.  Invented in the Philippines in 1973, Karaoke comes to the Casa on Thursdays, kicking off on Thursday 23rd May with the queens of Sink the Pink hosting proceedings. For those on the shy side or simply hoping to coax out their alter egos, there’s also the option to don a mask to spare their blushes and truly let loose. This isn’t your regular sing along, but Masked Karaoke, Sugarlandia style.
The in-house menu comes courtesy of a rolling roster of three chef teams each presenting their take on the flavour of the Philippines. Nicknamed “Asia’s last secret cuisine”, Filipino food upholds rich flavours and displays a wide range of culinary techniques emanating from the 7,000 islands that make up the Philippines. BBQ chefs SARAP line up alongside London supper club chefs Mae Williams and The Adobros.
There will also be two, ticketed supper club experiences at Casa Sugarlandia. Mae Williams brings her authentic flavours for a five-course menu (28th May) whilst The Adobros present their distinct culinary classics (4th June). Both menus will include a complimentary Don Papa cocktail and the rum as an ingredient in a selection of dishes.
On another night, concoctions will be served with exquisitely edible sugar-spun garnishes designed by the artist Fernando La Posse showcasing the provenance of the unique Filipino sugar used to make Don Papa."

The Soho Food Feast 2019


The Soho Food Feast is a unique event where many of Soho's best restaurants come together to raise money for the Soho Parish School.  It takes place this year on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June 2019, in St Anne's Church Garden on Wardour Street.  A selection of the area's best restaurants create special dishes for the event, and set up stalls to dish them out.  Customers buy £2 dinner tickets - a bit like at school - and one ticket gets you one dish.  So can eat food from such amazing chefs & restaurants as Calum Franklin at Holborn Dining Room, Xu, Ceviche, Blacklock, HIX, and Kricket for just £2. 
It's a wonderful day out and costs just £15 to get in (or £30 for the weekend if you do both days - the restaurants are different on each day) and it's a fantastic cause. 

"Now in its 9th year it has become a fabulous weekend food and entertainment extravaganza compromising of the best restaurants and chefs that Soho has to offer. A highlight of the summer calendar.
The event premise is simple, once inside visitors buy food tokens which they can exchange for taster samples of the restaurants signature dishes. There are also cooking demonstrations from chefs, live music and bars selling great wine and beer. There is also a raffle with much coveted prizes.
The weekend will see around 1200 people visiting each day, attracting foodies from across London as well as local residents and families. With its top notch line up it is a great way of eating your way around Soho for a fraction of the price."

This year's restaurants & bars include:
Belazu Ingredient Company * Blacklock * Casita Andina * Ceviche * Ducksoup * Ember Yard * Flat Iron * Gails Bakery * Game Bird * Ham Yard * Kiln * Koya * Lina Stores *Patty and Bun * Pit Stop *Zedel Brasserie * Polpo * Riding House Cafe * Trumans Brewery * Tamarind Kitchen * King of Soho Gin* Fever Tree Tonic*Temper * Wright Brothers * XU * Bread Ahead*Andrew Edmunds * Bao *Old Compton Brasserie * Brindisa Tapas * Blanchette * Bone Daddies Ramen Bar * Bonnie Gull * Corazon * Cut and Grind Burgers * Dean Street Townhouse * Dirty Bones * Ember Yard * Flat Iron * The Groucho * HIX * Holdborn Dining Room * Hoppers * Lev & Tine * Maltby & Greek * Mele e Pere * Pho * Dean Street Townhouse * Kricket *

Fulham Beach is open for summer 2019 on Wandsworth Bridge Road, SW6, on the north side of the Thames.  It's open Tuesday to Sunday for the summer, with beach huts, bars, games, bars, and food from Dough-Me (pizzas), and The Feast (BBQ).  This is its third year, and the theme is 'The Jungle' - expect a tropical beach vibe!

"The ultimate urban beach has officially arrived on the riverside of South West London, as Fulham Beach launches a brand new jungle-inspired beach haven. Taking inspiration from the tropics, where beach meets jungle, the vibrant indoor and outdoor space transports guests to a lush and colourful summer paradise, where Londoners can eat, play, dance and drink the summer away, soaking up riverside views, offering the ultimate festival feel that will last all summer long. 
Guests will be welcomed to a magnificent tropical fiesta with refreshing cocktails, bottomless rosé, beach brunches, two top street food vendors, live music, party packages and of course a beach. Following on from the success of 2018, Fulham Beach will launch a new indoor jungle this year; a botanical urban sanctuary filled with lush greenery and tendrilled foliage, while the new beach bar will serve up sun-drenched inspired libations and tropical summer serves alongside house spirits, Champagne and rosé. 
This year the beach welcomes, Dough-Me serving wood-fired pizzas topped with a range of fresh produce, and lashings of cheese. Pizzas include; Margarita, Portobello and Meat Feast as well as the unmissable sweet S'mores pizza, a base covered in Nutella and topped with toasted marshmallows, banana or strawberries. 
The Feast will bring the deep-south to the beach with their tender, dry rib, honey glazed pulled pork burgers, slow-cooked BBQ brisket burgers, Chicken Wings and halloumi fries. 
Fulham Beach will play host to a series of beach games ranging from table tennis to shuffleboard, and mini golf to beer pong. For film buffs out there, Beach Club Cinema nights will host a series of screenings every Tuesday, showing the cult classics and guilty pleasures. On Saturdays, it's all about sun, sand and sipping cocktails or bottomless rosé. Come Sunday tuck into a Bottomless Beach Brunch complete with strawberry cider, frozen daiquiris and bubbles alongside tempting street food. 
As summer fever reaches jungle temperatures, guests can hit the beach for summertime activities including; yoga, outdoor fitness sessions and morning raves. 
Take a trip to London's only urban beach this summer, an indoor and outdoor jungle beach oasis filled with pastel beach huts, white sand, delicious food, and crafted cocktails."

Sicily Fest 2019 in Brick Lane


SicliyFEST is back in London from Friday 17th - Sunday 19th May 2019.  It will be at The Boiler House on Brick Lane, and be a 3 day celebration of Sicilian food and culture, with lots of food, wine and produce to try and buy.  Expect Arancini!

"SicilyFEST is once again back to London for its 5th edition on 17/18/19 May 2019: three days to celebrate Sicily and its deliciously good products at The Boiler House in Brick Lane, right in the heart of London!
SicilyFEST started out as a celebration of everything Sicilian 5 years ago.
5 years of flights to and from London, no matter the weather, a huge goal in our minds and a great dedication in our suitcase. 
5 years of laughters, arancini, cannoli, passionate traders and great authentic Sicilian food. 
SicilyFEST 2018 was a huge success: almost 30000 visitors and a full sold out. Our visitors' smiles, love and appreciation, their pictures and positive feedback on social media are the reason we have been doing this for (already!) four editions and we intend to continue and improve. 
On May 2019 The Boiler House on Brick Lane is ready - again - to host a colourful, super tasty and mouth-watering invasion of odours and tastes from the beautiful peal of the Mediterranean. 
And SicilyFESY is ready to "conquer" you - and your taste buds - with a wide selection of arancini, wine, cannoli, cheese, pasta and many many more surprises!
And you, are you ready to be tantalised by the warm and tempting atmosphere of our island? 
Come and have a unique experience of Sicily, condensed in just three days in London!"

When - Friday 17th - Sunday 19th May 2019
Fri 17th May 2019: from 5.00pm to 10.00pm
Sat 18th May 2019: from 11.00am to 10.00pm
