Foodies can taste all kinds of amazing dishes

As part of the festival they are bringing their famous fire pit to Regents Park, sponsored by Food Network. Big Zuu, known for its rap and grime music and shows like Big Zuu’s Big Eats and Big Zuu’s Breakfast Show, will open the Pit on Wednesday. Chefs at the Fire Pit cook exclusive dishes in front of guests.

Taste and Just Eat have teamed up to bring out the Just Eat Daily Special, promising two new and different restaurants every day. Ever since Time Out voted it London’s best restaurant, we’ve all been struggling to get a reservation at Chishuru in Brixton. But Londoners have a chance to get a taste of Adejoké ‘Joke’ Bakaré’s award-winning contemporary West African restaurant at this fantastic rate.

Popular restaurants also set to feature on the Taste of London this summer include award-winning Sir Lankan Spot Hoppers, Big Mamma Group’s Instagrammable destinations like Ave Mario and London’s first alpine-inspired restaurant, Heritage.
