    If there's one thing you can be sure about, a food event featuring chef Ben Spalding won't be boring. Now the chef and his PuzzleProjects team are popping up in Shoreditch for the summer.

    Small Plate Sessions @ The Last Days of Shoreditch is described as ‘high-energy, punk tapas". There'll be two distinct areas to the popup - a 50-seat mezzanine restaurant where Ben is promising dishes like Gressingham Duck Breast cooked in a Chocolate Salt Crust and -

  • raindropcake

    Prepare to have your Instagram feed flooded. From next week, the ramen popup Yamagoya on Shaftesbury Avenue will be introducing Londoners to the raindrop cake.

    This rather beautiful creation is a cult Japanese dish - mizu shingen mochi, made in the shape of a water droplet. It's made from special agar powder and is served up with sweet molasses syrup (Kuromitsu) and kinako (roasted soybean flour) for dipping. It's quite literally a melt in your mouth dessert

    Kicking off today at Old Street station for two months is a Brazilian snack pop-up. You may already have tried Dona Rita's Pão de Queijo (or cheese bread) down at her stall at Druid Street Market. Made from cassava flour and cheese (so gluten-free too), each of these little cheesy puffs are made by hand by Dona.

    The snacks are apparently particularly good for breakfast, served with a short black coffee São Paulo style, or you can also smother them in jam if you're

    We're about to hit the point at which London finds floral inspiration in everything for the duration of the Chelsea Flower Show. And London's restaurants just love the opportunity to put their gardening gloves on and come up with flowery dishes and drinks.

    One such event worth seeking out will be Irish chef and writer Clodagh McKenna's pop-up at the Cheyne Walk Brasserie in West London. Her lovely-sounding menu will feature floral focused delights including roast

    So what's the story?

    The Gherkin's new pop-up for the summer will be Searcy’s Seaside in the Sky, who'll be serving upmarket versions of classic British food for six weeks.

    It'll all be themed around the Great British Seaside, and will come with the not inconsiderable bonus of epic views across London (plus zero chance of rogue bits of sand following you home in every pocket.) The pop-up will be split across two floors, with food being served at the Coastline on the 39th floor, while

    Who would say no to a free lunch, particularly when it comes courtesy of top chef Peter Gordon from The Providores. That's what's on offer this week in Soho at Air New Zealand's two-day pop-up. They've teamed up with the Kiwi chef to showcase the in-flight menu on board their planes.

    Visitors will be able to try the airline's canapes and drink the wines you'll find on board from New Zealand winery Villa Maria. And they'll also be able to pre-book meals to take away.

    The run of interesting residencies over at Birthdays in Dalston continues. If you were out of town over Easter you may have missed the opening of their latest one by Little Ghost. This street food turned pop up spot serves up Asian-inspired bagels, loaded fries and squid ink fried chicken. It's all very dark, in the best of ways.

    The bagels come in two varieties, using charcoal or beetroot to turn them inky black or pink. And while they're made the trad NYC way,
