Malt + Pepper's 3 Month Residency at Simon The Tanner near Borough

Malt + Pepper, the pop-up that cooks with beer, continue their ascent with a 3 month pop-up at Simon The Tanner, a pub on Long Lane, near Borough, and close to the famous Bermondsey Beer Mile.  The menu looks great - lots of Malt + Pepper's Dirty Fries (with chilli con carne - meat-free version also available), plus Beer Mac 'n' Cheese, and two new burgers - one vegetarian - for this residency.  Be there!

"It feel's a bit like the most exciting part of our adventure so far as we set sail to one of the most talked about parts of London's beer scene, The Bermondsey Beer Mile. Not only that, but we're reinstating hot, delicious (and, of course, beerfied) food to Simon The Tanner, a cracking beer pub on Long Lane.
The abundance of wonderful beer, calls for an abundance of delicious snacks so that's what we're providing. We are open 7 days a week, knocking out lunch specials, dinner specials, and Sunday lunch. We're collaborating with as many of the local brewers as time and space will allow, so expect supper clubs, tasting menus and the weird and whacky."

When - Daily til end of May 2018
Kitchen hours -
Mon - 5pm-10pm
Tues-Sat - 12 noon - 10pm
Sun - 12 noon - 8pm

Zoe's Ghana Kitchen's Residency at the Institute of Light

Zoe's Ghana Kitchen has started a new residency at the Institute of Light, a bar and cinema in London Fields.  They are serving every day - bar snacks and cinema snacks only on Mondays and Tuesdays - with brunch and dinner at weekends.  I love Zoe and her food, and it's been great to see both her journey (publishing a best selling cookbook, and recently presenting a BBC radio show about African food), and how the food has evolved over time.  You've got to visit this one!

"I believe we are on the cusp of an African food revolution. There is a longing to try something that is actually new, not just re-spun, and African cuisines are filling that gap. It's the last continent of relatively unexplored food in the mainstream domain. For too long Africans have kept this incredible food a greedy secret."

When - Daily til Autumn 2018
Mon & Tues 6:00 - 22:00 - Bar snacks only
Wed - Fri 18:00-22:00 - Main menu + bar snacks
Sat & Sun - 12 noon - 4pm - Brunch
Sat & Sun - 5pm - 10pm - Dinner
Last orders for the kitchen at 9.30pm every night

Where - Institure of Light, Arch 376, 10 Helmsley Place, London E8 3SB

PITCH Stratford - with Street Food, a Bar & Screenings

PITCH Stratford, the street food and entertainment site 5 minutes from Stratford station, opens for 2018 on Thursday 29th March 2018, the start of the Easter weekend.  Open Fridays to Sundays, extending to Thursdays to Sundays from May, it's got street food in the form of Ticos, The Gyoza Boys and Kalimera, a bar with Camden Town Brewery beers, and film screenings too.  Go!

"Open from Easter weekend right through to Autumn, food will be served up by a trio of popular street food traders: Ticos serves up gourmet hot dogs and slow-cooked beef ribs, KERB favourites The Gyoza Guys bring their famously silky, flavour-packed dumplings to the table, while modern Greek specialists Kalimera offer sunshine and souvlaki. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available, alongside homemade churros and crepes from The Pitch Sweet Shack. And to match, draft beers from Camden Town Brewery are complemented by a great selection of craft cans and bottles (including gluten-free beers), plus a neat range of cider, wine, cocktails, premium spirits and mixers.
Pitch will bring a fresh line-up of events each week. Thursdays will be all about new experiences, with a wide range of fun activities to get stuck into. Fridays combine daytime networking with after-work drinks deals, while Saturdays come in three parts: family-friendly street food lunches, followed a good few hours of lazy afternoon / early evenings of alfresco eating and drinking, ahead of a themed party night or outdoor film screening. Sundays are for brunching, with flowing prosecco and DJs bringing a laidback Ibiza vibe to E15."
