Conflict Café Syria

Why Join the Table?

Syrian dining in spectacular tunnels under Waterloo station on Peace Day. **Currently sold out. Add your name to waitlist in case of last minute cancellations** Conflict Café is bringing back its sell-out supperclub, Conflict Café Syria. Join us for a Syrian sharing feast with no less than 9 dishes. As seen in the Guardian and Evening Standard, Conflict Café is the pop-up that serves peace through food.
Chefs from Syrian restaurant Ayam Zaman will delight with a menu including favourites like baba ghanouj and classic kibbeh, and the chance to try something perhaps not so familiar, such as hara isbah, a traditional Syrian dish of pasta with tamarind and lentils, and the delicious fattet makdous, a dish from Damascus that had everyone salivating last time.

The Whole Hog

"There is something very significant about the act of bringing people together around a table to eat, whatever their differences: the very act of cooking and sharing food is a unifying one. It's true that this is not the only tool for peace, but it is a step in the right direction and a great reason to support Conflict Cafe." - Yotam Ottolenghi

Conflict Café has served over 1000 diners, highlighting cuisines and conflicts from Syria to Colombia, and celebrating the power of food to break down barriers and get people talking.
At the pop-up, diners join communal tables where they are treated to a feast of traditional dishes from countries that have experienced conflict around the world, created by chefs from the regions.

Featured in The Telegraph, Guardian, Independent, Reuters, Associated Press, CNN, BuzzFeed, BBC Radio 4, Al Jazeera, Huffington Post, Evening Standard, Time Out and more, the charity initiative has been running since 2014.

Very well organised event. Food was tasty, staff friendly and loved the concept of meeting new people, sharing experiences and learning more about Syria! Would definitely go again.

What a great evening. Shame that the heating fan made it hard to hear the speaker.
