Seychelles pop-up to open in London pub
The King & Co pub in London's Clapham is to feature a pop-up street kitchen serving Seychelles-inspired food.
Family-run Vinn Goute, which has made appearances at street food markets Kerb and StreetFeast, will be based at the pub throughout June and July.
The Seychelles kitchen takeover will feature a number of dishes inspired by the Indian Ocean islands, including curried goat and octopus curry, "Saffran" rice and chunky pumpkin salad, along with grilled fish.
A selection of "tropical" brunch wraps will also be served, along with bar snacks including spicy chilli balls and plantain chips.
Vinn Goute founder Kristofer Adelaide said: "The phrase ‘Vinn Goute' is well-known in Seychelles Kreol, and literally means ‘come and taste'. My grandmother would always say this to us - she was a wonderful cook who combined a wealth of different ingredients grown locally in her garden with freshly caught grilled fish from the clear blue seas of the Indian Ocean.
"When I came to live in England in 1999 I missed the fine dishes sizzling on the outdoor cooker and her hearty calls to the dinner table, so I launched London's first Seychelles streetfood with my aunty Maria, sister Julie and Andy the chef."
