We round-up 4 of the best pop-ups to visit in May:
Barrio’s Taco Takeover with The Roadery
Barrio are inviting chefs, street vendors and brands to take part in their Taco Takeover, collaborating with a different foodie each month. Participating cooks will include Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, Texas Joe’s, Mussel Men and Levi Roots, who will each create a special taco served throughout the month in residence. The Roadery are the first to takeover with their Braco (British taco). Featuring all the best bits but with a wild and foraged touch, the Braco is stuffed full of braised lamb belly, wild nettle salsa verde, cucumber and tomato salsa and apricot hot sauce.
Sound good? Taco Takeover is available in Barrio Soho and Barrio Shoreditch, from Wednesday 4th May.
Michelin-starred Indian restaurant Trishna will be hosting a series of regional dinners from 10 May through to September. At £120, it’s not cheap but we assure you it is going to be excellent. Trishna will be exploring the intense flavours and local spices of Goa and will be serving dishes such as Margao Beef Roast and Pork Belly Vindaloo as well as our Bebinca, a layered pancake served with coconut and jaggery ice cream.
The event is being held at Trishna on the 10th May and tickets are still available to purchase here.
From the 17-21 May, you can experience the traditional foods of Zurich. Borough will be filled with artisan producers, pop-up food stalls and Dada-inspired gala dinners hosted by some of Zurich’s top chefs. A miniature Swiss village of stalls will be serving local specialities such as Züri-honey; Tirggel biscuits; Zesty Turicum Gin and Zurich’s favourite sausage, the Cervelat.
