Selfridges announces the launch of a new dedicated pop up site in its London Foodhall with a roster of exciting street food and chef collaborations programmed for 2021. The space, ‘The Pop Up Kitchen at Selfridges’ launches with Venezuelan street food brand Pabellón.
Following an extremely popular appearance at Selfridges Christmas Market last year, award-winning purveyors of Venezuelan street food Pabellón will be the first eatery to take over the space with a three month residency from 12 March.
Pabellón’s menu features two classic Venezuelan dishes. Firstly the Arepa; a traditional corn bread prepared freshly by hand and filled with a choice of beef, chicken or beans and topped with cheese, salad, avocado and fried plantains. Secondly, its namesake Pabellon; a Venezuelan rice bowl that is served with meat (or black beans), plantain, pico de gallo, avocado and a half arepa to mop up all the delicious flavours. All dishes are served in sustainable packaging and can be made vegan or vegetarian. Everything on the menu is also gluten free.
Pabellón is the first in a series of exciting foodie collaborations which will launch at The Pop Up Kitchen at Selfridges, with more details to be announced in the coming months.
Selfridges Head of Food, Andrew Bird comments, ‘We’re very excited to be launching our new dedicated pop up site in the Foodhall. The space has been designed to be a launch pad for new brands as well as a destination for the capital’s best street food and exciting chef collaborations. We look forward to welcoming visitors to discover something new and delicious.’
