This dining and drinks venue in Clerkenwell hosts several different pop-ups under one roof. The food vendors change on a monthly basis – in May Blanch and Shock, The Robin Collective (which takes garnishing to the next level with a hands-on workshop involving gunpowder and origami) and Rack & Ruin are the guest chefs. Go for the salt lamb neck at Blanch and Shock, which is amazingly tender and deeply smoky, like a mix between salt beef and smoky bacon, but avoid the carrots cooked in hay with air-dried beef, which disappointingly tastes like boiled carrots sprinkled with sawdust. If you’ve still got room, opt for chunks of beef served rare with tabouleh at Rack and Ruin, where the style is unfussy, letting the quality of the ingredients shine through.
