Pop-up restaurant returning to London

Pop-up restaurant, Conflict Café, is returning to London. Running from 21-23 September, it will explore the Syrian crisis through the country’s cuisine and celebrate the power of food to break down barriers and get people talking.

Now in its fourth year, Conflict Café, created by  charity International Alert, has highlighted cuisines and conflicts from Sri Lanka to Colombia, inspiring strangers to connect over the concept of peace through food. This year it will focus on Syria.

Diners will sit at communal tables in the underground tunnels of House of Vans in Waterloo on London’s South Bank to enjoy traditional dishes by Syrian chefs from Ayam Zaman, a restaurant specialising in the cuisine of the Dam.
