At the end of May, Baohaus will take up residency at Neighbourhood in Islington (with home delivery also available) for 13 weeks, serving up a menu featuring many of the signature dishes that made a splash in at the NYC location, like the Chairman Bao (braised pork belly with Haus relish, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar & cilantro), the Manager’s Meal (red cooked pork belly, minced pork stew and Birdhaus fried chicken served with Haus relish & cilantro) and the Uncle Jesse Bao (organic fried tofu served with Haus sauce, Haus seasoning salt, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar & cilantro).

It’s not summer in London without a BBQ pop-up from Jimmy Garcia, so he’s bringing his BBQ Club back to the Southbank. The club is serving up a six-course menu, including dishes like BBQ asparagus with house labneh, scallop with burnt lime butter & sobrasada, BBQ chicken supreme with coal fired leeks & wild allium emulsion, and beer braised bone marrow & beef cheek doughnut with flat iron yakitori, and you’ll be involved in the cooking, with at least one element of each course coming from the Big Green Eggs on each table. The restaurant will also be doing Sunday lunch barbecue-style with slow-cooked lamb shoulders, grilled veggies and summer salads. If you’re after something a little more casual, the club’s two bars, rooftop terrace and garden patches will be offering a street food menu featuring burgers, lamb kebabs, BBQ trout, halloumi fries, chicken wings and tomato & burrata salads, so you can just walk up, grab your goods and find a sunny spot to sit in.
