Unique gourmet experiences pop up in London

24th August 2011

Food lovers have been given new reasons to visit the capital this summer with the appearance of new innovative eateries.

The Big Red Pizza Bus could be considered the ultimate dining experience for people staying in central London hotels.

Made from a converted Route Master bus, the Big Red now serves as a gourmet pizzeria, with the vehicle currently parked in Deptford under an elevated section of the DLR.

While diners can enjoy the double decker's revamped interior as they tuck into their pizza, they can also indulge in a selection of drinks, including wine, mojitos, sangria and beer.

There are seats and tables inside the stranded bus, but there are also plenty of places to relax on the decking outside, including sofas conveniently placed under rain shelters.

Diners can soon enjoy a show with their meal, as the owners are planning to park a vintage 40ft lorry nearby before converting it into a pop-up 40-seater cinema and art exhibition space.

In a unique touch, the restaurant also features freshly grown herbs in pots that customers can pluck themselves.

"Float some fresh mint on your mojito plucked from the herb garden," explains Big Red, adding: "[And] dress your pizza with a little extra Basil from the planters."

Furthermore, those interested in indulging their sweet tooth could be keen to try out the offerings at the Swedish Fika Parlour, which has popped up in Soho Square with traditional coffees, cookies and cakes.

Organised by Visit Sweden, the venue's "traditionally dressed Swedish ladies" will serve seven types of cookies from the famed Swedish chocolatier Jan Hedh.

The site also features an art installation by Emma Karp Lundstrom, who claims to have been inspired by the apple harvests of souther Sweden.
