Imad’s Syrian Kitchen x Choose Love's Pop-up Restaurant in Columbia Road

Imad's Syrian Kitchen has teamed up with Choose Love to open a pop-up restaurant to raise money for Hope Hospital, a children's hospital in Syria.  It opens on Thursday 29th March 2018, and runs Thursday to Sunday, with two sittings a day,  until the end of May (but hopefully longer).  Tickets are just £40 + fees, and it's BYOB with a £5 corkage charge.  Please support this fabulous initiative!

"A new pop-up kitchen has launched in the heart of London Shoreditch to raise funds for a children’s hospital in Syria. Run by Syrian refugee Imad Alarnab and charity Help Refugees, Imad’s Choose Love Kitchen invites customers to ‘experience the true taste of Syria’.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the famous flower market on Columbia Road, the new restaurant serves a traditional 3-course Syrian meal, cooked by one of the most famous chefs from Damascus.
All the profits raised will be used to fund Hope Hospital, a children’s hospital that has saved thousands of lives in Syria’s Aleppo region.
Hope Hospital became the first ever crowdfunded hospital in early 2016, providing incubators for new born babies, treatments for pregnant and postnatal women and lifesaving surgical operations to those injured in the conflict.
It is the only paediatric hospital in the Aleppo region, serving a community of over 250,000 people. But in a month, if funds aren’t raised, Hope Hospital will be forced to close.
Following the huge success of the Choose Love Store in Soho, Help Refugees has teamed up with the incredible Imad Alarnab to save Hope Hospital. Imad was a successful restaurateur in Damascus with two restaurants. But during the war, his restaurants were destroyed, and he was forced to flee the country in search of safety for his family. It was through this journey that he first met Help Refugees.
When he arrived in the UK, Imad found work as a car salesman and was able to bring his family to join him in England. Over time, he began to dream of running his own restaurant again. Imad then opened a series of pop-up restaurants in London that sold out every single night. This time round, instead of doing it for himself, he wanted to raise money for the people who really need it.
The restaurant will be fully staffed by Help Refugees volunteers, who will be on hand to serve food, answer any questions and take donations.
Customers simply buy a ticket online and turn up to enjoy a set menu of Imad’s signature Syrian dishes. All tickets cost just £40, and there will be two sittings for 20 people per night (and two per day on Sundays) where customers will have an hour and a half to enjoy a three course feast.
It’s BYO with a £5 corkage donation that will go directly to Hope Hospital. Diners can also expect surprise celebrity staff, events and special promotions."
