This September, the world's largest furniture retailer, IKEA, is launching a pop-up restaurant and shop in Shoreditch for a standalone Swedish inspired café. As well as the much-loved IKEA meatballs, visitors will be able to enjoy other Swedish favourites, including pulled-salmon rolls and Smorgasbords.
Hurry up though as the IKEA pop-up café is only around until 25th September. Kitchen showrooms will also be on display, housing a collection of IKEA products on the culinary theme, around cooking, eating and dining together.
Another quirky big-brand pop-up that's making a brief appearance in London this month is the Walkers' Crisp Sarnie Cafe near London Bridge. In the same feel as a retro speakeasy - the cafe is concealed behind a shelf of crisps in Chris Peter's Newsagent at 112/114 Tooley Street - once the secret door opens you can enter to enjoy the crisp sandwiches.
The cafe has been open since early this month and will close its secret door this Saturday, 24th September. Don't miss out!
The popular ramen bar, Bone Daddies is collaborating with Instagram favourite, Clerkenwell Boy, for a visual fiesta this weekend and for the next four weeks with their Old Street #BoozyWeekendRamen breakfast binge. A photogenic boozy breakfast that includes a bowl of ramen and a DIY Belvedere Vodka Bloody Mary on the side will be on offer for the first 50 visitors - once again, you've got to be quick!
These are just a few of the increasing numbers of interesting and inspiring pop-ups that are converging on the capital. Keep up with the conversation on social media, as well as at the London Pop-ups website, and if you find a hidden gem let us know @thefoodpeople.
