Community restaurant The Lido Cafe will host chefs and street food traders at its “lovely” and “relaxing” poolside dining space in a new series of evening popup dinners. Launching on Thursday 11 February with Tem Ban’s twist on traditional Thai food, the rotating kitchen collaborations will run every Thursday and Friday evening.
Guests visiting The Lido Cafe in Herne Hill during February for the kitchen takeover by Tem Ban can enjoy a new menu with small plates like: Deep fried Grey Mullet and star fruit salad and “Nam Prik Pao” shredded pigs’ ears with burnt sour red chilli sauce. The pop-up menu’s Southeast Asian large plates showcase a wide array of textures and flavours, such as “Khao Soi Gai” free-range chicken Chang Mai curried noodles with pickles and crispy noodle topping, and “Hang Lae” pork belly curry with ginger and peanuts.
The Lido Cafe’s bar team have also concocted two exclusive cocktails to accompany Tem Ban’s contemporary Thai cooking. A Watermelon Bellini and a Tamarind Whiskey Sour, served alongside the cafe’s selection of local craft beers and wines.
