It's the time of the year again when, over the course of the month, we see dodgy facial hair bloom into the finest moustaches - all to raise money and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
As usual, a number of restaurants are taking part throughout London and we've pulled together all the details. So, whether you're cultivating your own mo this month or not, here's where you can dine out and support the cause at the same time.
Once again, Byron are launching a special Movember burger, available all. The MO Burger is a classic American cheeseburger with a twist: a Byron hamburger patty topped with Cheddar cheese, served with pickled red onion rings, salted cucumber slices, sliced iceberg lettuce and mustard dill dressing, inside a sesame seed glazed bun. It'll be £8.75 and for every MO Burger sold, Byron will donate 50p to Movember.
Byron will also be helping registered ‘Mo Bros’ and ‘Mo Sistas’ who raise over £25 to beef up their moustache, by offering them a free hamburger, chicken burger, veggie burger or main course salad between 3-6pm every day for two weeks, from November 7th-20th inclusive.
Streetfood kings KERB are "taking Movember by the handlebars". 37 of KERB's traders are offering Mo-Bros various discounts and upgrades throughout Movember, wherever they may be trading. KERB is at the at the top of Kings Boulevard and many of KERB's traders will be there on some day or another during Movember. You'll also find them at Whitecross Street Market, Broadway Market, Brockley Market, Portobello Market and various other places and you can check the individual traders' twitter feeds for updates.
Anywhere they are, any Mo-Bro just needs to show some Mo-id (proof that they're growing a Mo for the cause) and they can get whatever offer is in place. For more details, visit www.kerbfood.com.
Following its success over the past few years, “MOXO” is back. On Friday 16th November, OXO Tower Brasserie hosts the Long Lunch starting with shaved San Daniele ham, Ragstone goats cheese and marinated artichokes with a truffle orange blossom honey, followed by Black Sea Bream, fried coconut rice cake, crispy shrimps, green paw paw and a tomato chilli jam and a Peanut butter brownie served with coffee cream rounds off the meal for dessert. It is priced at £40 per head with £10 from every ticket sold going straight to the Movember cause.
And throughout the month of November, £1 from every ‘Mo’jito sold at OXO will be donated to charity and tickets for a raffle are available from the bar. For bookings and enquiries, call 020 7803 3888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registered “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas” will be treated to complimentary professional grooming parties, furnished with moustache grooming products in the Factory House all month. Plus they'll get a 10% discount on their food & drink bills throughout the month.
They also have a spacial Movember cocktail titled The Rudyard Kipling (inspired by the great Victorian man and his moustache). Based on ‘The King’s Peg’ from Kipling’s short story ‘At the end of the passage’ The Rudyard Kipling is a combination of cognac, sparkling wine and bitters. There will also be a special Movember sirloin steak. For every cocktail and steak sold, they'll donate £1 to the cause.
PingPING - the ping pong rooms, bar and kitchen - and Spitfire ale are joining forces to offer their tashtatic customers a complimentary Mo treatment in their pop up barbers - Deano's Cool Cuts. It's offering customers trims from Monday to Wednesday, 6 pm-11pm by the famous Deano who has recently returned from LA after winning the American Crew Competition. Throughout the month of Movember, people participating in this good cause can visit PING for a free Mo trim along with a complimentary Spitfire.
