Magnum's 2016 'Design Your Own Magnum' Pop-up Shop near Bond Street


It's back - The Magnum  Pleasure Store where you can 'Make Your Own Magnum' will open as a pop-up shop at 56 South Molton Street, near Bond Street.  Opening on Wednesday 1st June, yu'll be able to make your own Magnum by choosing the different elements - ice cream, chocolate, sprinkles - and then eat it, pausing only to Instagram the heck out of it.  This year they'll be letting you do double-dipped ones - so two types of chocolate - for £4.50, the same price as before.  This has become a rather wonderful London summer tradition.

"Magnum ice cream, the brand synonymous with pleasure, has today thrown open the doors to a haven of chocolate and ice cream indulgence, with the opening of the Magnum Pleasure Store in London’s stylish South Molton Street.  Back by popular demand and open exclusively for the summer, for the first time ever visitors will be treated to freshly double-dipped, personalised Magnums with two layers of deliciously decadent chocolate, a luxurious layer of sauce and a selection of tempting toppings in the heart of London’s shopping district.
The Magnum Pleasure Store will serve bespoke ice creams to visitors throughout the summer.
Customers at the hotly anticipated summer pop up will enjoy a pleasure-packed experience where, to celebrate the launch of the Magnum Double range, they will be the first to try a double dipped Magnum with two layers of chocolate and a layer of sauce. Whether choosing a double or single dipped Magnum, customers will then be able to choose their own selection of tempting toppings to sprinkle over the setting chocolate. From black lava sea salt to rose petals, there are thousands of flavour combinations to choose from. Each individual creation will be perfected with a drizzle of chocolate and the finishing touch; a classic M coin decoration; all from £4.50.
Decorated in signature Magnum style, the beautiful store is adorned a stunning series of images captured by iconic fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and starring supermodel, Kendall Jenner, to celebrate the launch of Magnum Double. The Magnum Release the Beast Photo Series captures times in Kendall’s own life where she threw caution to the wind and dared to indulge; just as visitors to the Magnum Pleasure Store will be invited to do."

When - From Wednesday 1st June - 16th September 2016
Monday - Saturday 11am - 9pm
Sunday 12pm - 6pm

Where - Magnum Pleasure Store London, 56 South Molton Street, London W1K 5SH.

Tacu Tacu's June Residency at The Arch Gallery in Bethnal Green


This June Tacu Tacu, specialists in Latin American street food, will be serving up at The Arch Gallery in Bethnal Green Road for a 'Summer in the Arches' including Euro 2016 screenings, art, DJs, bands, and of course their superb dishes including Chocolate Ox-cheek tacos, Mojito Cheesecake, and the Instagram favourite Peruvian Octopus Burger.  Running from 2nd to 25th June, these will be serving every Thursday to Saturday.

"For the month of June- Latin American streetfood outfit Tacu Tacu will be joining forces with the Arch Gallery in Bethnal Green for the "Summer in the Arches" popup in Cambridge Heath Road. Hidden among Victorian-era railway arches and a stones throw from the tube station as well as up-and-coming Paradise Row- Arch Gallery is one of the East End's best kept secrets and will be transformed into a summer-themed food and drinks space. 
It will include a newly built terrace as well as displays from selected local artists to create a holiday vibe. They will also be inviting down a host of exciting artists, DJ's and bands such as 4-piece swingers The AppleJacks to get you moving post-meal. 
(You won't have to miss the football either because they will be showing selected games for the upcoming Euro 2016 tournament on a large screen projector)
Tacu Tacu will be cooking up a storm in the kitchen- highlights include Chocolate Ox-cheek tacos,THAT Mojito Cheesecake, the Instagram favourite Peruvian Octopus Burger and much more of the likes that London has never seen before. The Mexiclam Fries were a huge hit in their last pop up and they are making a much awaited comeback- think crispy fries topped with steamed clams cloaked in a rich chipotle and white wine cream.  
The rotating Specials menu will feature their classic trademark Baja Shrimp Burger along with new kids on the block like Pina Colada prawns and the Pacific Tostada- a crispy corn tortilla layered with guacamole and a 'ceviche mixto' of lime-cured fresh white fish- shrimp and octopus. Or how about a Seafood Dip Sandwich? Generously-seasoned breaded fish doused in chimichurri sauce before being served in toasted bread alongside a helping of a devilishly decadent spicy shrimp and lime dip.
To quench your thirst- beside a range of standard and craft beers expect a tailored stellar cocktail list has been curated by Stockholm's own cocktail wunderkid Jakub Lundberg (ex Callooh Callay) and will includes twists on some classics as well as specially created drinks tailored to perfectly complement the array of food flavours.
Come with empty stomachs and fully charged cameras!"

When - 2nd-25th June 2016 - Thursdays - Saturdays, 5pm-10pm

Where - The Arch Gallery, 289 Railway Arches, Cambridge Heath Road, E2 9HA

C FOOD is bringing jazz and Mediterranean dining to Camberwell this summer, with a season of Sunday evening events in the courtyard of The Employment Academy in Peckham Road.  It's admittedly not the most glamourous-sounding address, but as you can see in the pic, the courtyard will be decked out with olives, large communal tables and more, and their 3 course menu costs just £30.  Starting on Sunday 29th May and happening on Sunday evenings until the end of August, this one sounds amazing, and I'm sure will be a very hot ticket!

Inspired by our ultimate ‘last supper’, you can expect mountains of fresh seafood, chilled wines, crusty bread, homemade aioli and aquavit amongst olive trees, and accordions.
Each Sunday we will be transforming a hidden courtyard on Peckham Road into a seafood fiesta. The beautiful building belongs to the Employment Academy and is run by Thames Reach. The Academy helps thousands of unemployed and economically disadvantaged people find employment in the capital. It is a fantastic charity and an amazing building. Our bar opens at 5pm, we welcome you to come down and join us for cocktails and live Jazz before settling down to one of our long tables at 7pm for an evening of feasting with friends.
Tickets are £30 each, sold in multiples of 4 and include; oysters to start, followed by a big seafood platter with hot new potatoes, salad, bread and homemade mayonnaise, finishing off with a big bowl of strawberries and cream. Seafood platters are for sharing, as a fiesta is no good on your own!"
