england_london_conflict-cafeHeading across the pond next month, Road Trips Foodies? If London’s on your schedule, consider a stop at the Conflict Café, a pop-up restaurant launched by peace-building charity International Alert.

It returns to London, England for its second year from September 9 through October 3, 2015, “to inspire more strangers to ‘break bread’ and start conversations about peace through food”.

The restaurant, which was named ‘Most inspiring pop-up of 2014’ by Time Out, will continue to showcase how “food can unite, inform and provoke discussion”, and will mark UN International Peace Day September 21, 2015.

Conflict Café will take place at House of VANS in Waterloo (Arches 228 – 232 Station Approach Road, London). The underground venue will be transformed into a different region every week.

Tickets are available online.

Thinking of the ongoing Syria crisis, Conflict Café kicks off with a Middle Eastern theme, featuring a special brunch by Honey & Co chefs Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich.

The focus will then shift to Nepal with chef Rajiv KC taking over the Café. Diners will have the chance to find out more about the challenges facing the country following the recent earthquakes and end of the civil war.

Esnayder Cuartas will introduce visitors to Colombian cuisine in the third week – a country that has been ravaged by civil conflict for the past 50 years.

Turkish chef Önder ?ahan will then join forces with Armenian cook Natalie Griffith in the final week to devise a unique menu which celebrates the similar culinary traditions of these divided countries.

Conflict Café will run in partnership with Grub Club and Cult Events. It is part of Alert’s annual Talking Peace Festival, a month-long series of events designed to spark conversations about peace through creativity.
