Diners will learn more about Southeast Asian cuisine.
Conflict Cafe, an annual pop-up restaurant created by NGO International Alert, is returning to London on International Peace Day (21 September) to celebrate food from the Philippines.
Diners will experience a one-of-a-kind Filipino salu-salo (a gathering of friends and family for a feast) this year.
The three-course sharing meal was created by Anglo-Filipino chef Mark Corbyn of London supperclub, The Adobros. The pop-up will be held at Flat Iron Square, 64 Southwark Street, London.
Conflict Café’s communal dining concept was created to facilitate an interactive experience of peacebuilding through food. This year, it will focus on how Filipinos remain hopeful despite the different struggles they face.
“For Filipinos, food has always been a way of bringing people together to share stories, talk about any topic – even the most difficult ones, and creatively explore ways to navigate issues,” said Nikki de la Rosa, International Alert Philippines’ Country Manager.
Proceeds from the initiative will support International Alert’s work building peace in the region.
