Jeow Jeow's Southeast Asian Residency at The Sun & 13 Cantons in Soho - Tues-Sat
https://www.londonpopups.com/2019/07/jeow-jeows-southeast-asian-residency-at.html
Jeow Jeow, is a 'Mostly Mekong' pop-up at the Sun & 13 Cantons in Soho created by chef Tania Steytler & husband, the food writer Bill Knott.  Inspired by their love of travelling around Southeast Asia, particularly Laos & Thailand, the food is a mix of dishes from different countries, with some of their own creations and improvisations blended in.  I was incredibly impressed when I visited them recently; The Sun & 13 have definitely hit on a winner to rank with previous pop-ups Darjeeling Express and Sambal Shiok! It's serving from Tuesdays to Saturdays until mid September; don't miss this one.
