  • It has been confirmed that Meatliquor will be opening in King’s Cross. Hot Dinners report that the burger chain will open with a limited menu of 4 August and fully on 7 August. They will occupy the site vacated by 06 St Chad's Place and will be the brand’s ninth London site. It opens in an area with no shortage of burger options, equidistant from a McDonalds, Honest Burgers and Five Guys, just off King’s Cross Road.
  • The third annual Chinese Food Festival, “the UK’s only dedicated festival to celebrate Chinese food,” returns to Potters Fields Park — at the foot of Tower Bridge between the 8 – 10 September this year. The event comprises three areas: Over 20 food stalls; Lee Kum Kee Cooking Masterclass: free 45-minute cooking classes from School of Wok’s Jeremy Pang; and Discovery Journey (New for 2017): A 6-course “journey” through Chinese cuisine, curated by Lillian Luk of Shanghai Supper Club and TongTong Ren and Peiran Gong of Chinese Laundry, which is currently closed.
  • Som Saa have announced their latest ‘Late night’ collaboration.

The drinks, music and party will continue until 3am. Saturday 5th of August. Free entry.
