Dine with Kyi's August Burmese Street Kitchen Pop-up in Homerton

Burmese chef Kyi sold out her last pop-up at  Well Street Kitchen in E9, so she's back for another night on Friday 8th August.  As before it will feature 9 different dishes, in a friendly, sharing style - see flyer above for details of the food.  £1 from the £28 ticket price will go the the  Mind to Mind Myanmar charity.

"Summer is finally here and Dine with Kyi (pronounced ‘Chi’) have teamed up with Well Street Kitchen to host Burma Street Kitchen, a Burmese picnic in Hackney.  Diners get to experience 9 different mouth-watering tastes of Burma in handy size portions.  In her menu, chef Thuzar Kyi, pays homage to her late mother by serving home-cooked Burmese flavours that she grew up with, in a contemporary picnic, using seasonal and local ingredients.
Burma borders, among others, India, China and Thailand, which are some of the most popular cuisines in the UK. Burmese cuisine is an amalgamation of all these cuisines, resulting in unique and tasty dishes. Thus instead of thinking should you pick an Indian, Chinese or Thai curry tonight... have all three and choose Burmese.
In keeping with Burmese culture, communal tables will encourage guests to share a meal and conversation, and to make new friends.  There will also be a fully stocked bar serving soft drinks, beers and wine.
£1 per ticket will go to Mind to Mind Myanmar - A Burmese charity supporting the well-being of mentally ill patients in Myanmar."

When - Friday 8th August, 7pm - 10pm

Where - Well Street Kitchen, 203 Well Street, E9 6QU

Tickets - £28 per person, for 9 different nibbles of Burma, from Eventbrite here

Beef & Liberty's People's Steak Night in Bloomsbury

Alexander Pashby of Tongue 'n Cheek has a new project - the people's steak club.  Once a month he will put on a steak night in Bloomsbury, WC1, with The People's Supermarket, catering for serious steak enthusiasts, at a good price (there are also very good vegetarian options).  See below for the menu - looks superb!

"The People's Steak Club is a new monthly neighbourhood steak night in Bloomsbury brought to you by street food start up/upstart Beef & Liberty and social enterprise The People's Supermarket.
The aim is to democratise the idea of an old London steak club, keeping the social aspect (come prepared to talk to the person sitting next to you) while making it more affordable by offering a meal that would cost two to three times more at Hawksmoor or Goodman, for example 
Both individual and cooperative share a love of high quality, locally sourced, sustainable ingredients, the result of which is the first night's menu, centred around charcoal grilled, grass fed, native breed beef supplied by top butcher, Turner & George. 
A glass of Borough Wine or Kernel Table Beer
Steak tartare or truffled Wild Mushrooms on toasted sourdough
Bone-in Rib Eye, triple cooked chips, dressed salad and a selection of steak sauces
Bull's Heart Tomato stuffed w/ quinoa and mixed seasonal vegetables
Smoked meringues with summer fruits, champagne cream and truffle honey"

When - Wednesday 6th August 7:30 for 8pm

Where - OneKX,120 Cromer Street, London WC1H 8BS

Tickets - £30 (£25 for vegetarian) from here

The Art of Dining's 'The Colour Palate' Dinners in Marylebone

The Colour Palate is pop-up dining experience combining food, drink, music and colour.  Create by regular organisers The Art of Dining takes place at Carousel in Marylebone from Wednesday to Saturday for three weeks this August and September, starting Weds 20th.  Diners get to enjoy a delicious five course meal, a welcome drink and a chance to literally taste the rainbow!

"The Art of Dining brings you ‘The Colour Palate’ - a series of pop-up suppers in London's Marylebone.
Green, red, yellow, white or black: every colour can spark off a range of different emotions. Colours can be soothing or stimulating, uplifting or sinister; but how often do we really focus on colour and experience the full intensity of its impact?
For its next exciting pop-up event, The Art of Dining will stimulate your different senses - taste, vision, hearing, touch and smell - in an exploration of colour. The dining room, your plate and your glass will be flooded with different colours as each course arrives and the music changes. Expect to be stimulated, amused and delighted by the setting and your meal, as you savour an eclectic mix of punchy tastes and delicious flavours.
The gauntlet has been thrown for chef Ellen Parr, who trained at Moro restaurant in London's Exmouth Market. Choosing ingredients firstly for colour is not her usual starting point …. but a challenge she is rising to!
Artist and set designer Alice Hodge will use lighting and transparent materials to create an ever changing environment for your meal to take place within. You will be interacting with courses to complete your own colour palate throughout the evening.
Music will be provided by Radio One DJ Gemma Cairney."

When -
Wednesday 20th - Saturday 23rd August
Wednesday 27th - Saturday 30th August
Wednesday 2nd - 6th September
7.30pm - 11.30pm

Where - Carousel, 71 Blandford St, Marylebone, London, W1U 8AB

Lemonade & Laughing Gas' Surrealist Dinner Party in East London

This August Lemonade and Laughing Gas are back for another immersive, fun night of food, cocktails and unusual fun, this time on the theme of a surreal dinner party.  Food is 'imagined' by moro head chef Flo Hiller, and cocktails are by regular collaborator Alex Orwin.  Dress up, and be prepared for anything...

"In 1972, Baronness Marie-Hélène Rothschild threw a deliriously extravagant party for guests including Salvador Dali, Audrey Hepburn and Richard Burton. The result was the infamous ‘Diner de Têtes Surrealiste’...

This August, Lemonade and Laughing Gas invite you to enter this world for their next immersive dining experience, as they re-imagine and reconstruct this notorious dinner party...with your help.
Black tie and surrealist heads are compulsory. The rather exciting venue will be announced the week before (hint - East, Zone 2).

More clues will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to the event, and for those that wish, a downloadable journey route will be available from three different starting points, to lead you to the party in the way that L&LG know best.

The eating part of the evening will be art installation crossed with an experimental buffet: part sit down dinner, part eating journey discovered by you. The menu has been imagined by Moro head chef Flo Hillier, and is inspired by the 1972 menu's oddities such as ‘Chevres hurlant de Tristesse’ (roughly translated as ‘cheese of goat screaming in post-coital sadness’).  As usual, we’re collaborating with genius mixologist Alex Orwin for mind-bending cocktails and expertly paired drinks."

When - Thurs 14th - Sat 16th August, 7pm - 1am

Where - A secret location 'in East London, Zone 2'

Tickets - £45 from Design My Night here
