Pop-up restaurant run by nuns to open in London

We’ve had a cereal café and a Breaking Bad cocktail bar in a trailer, and now London is to be treated to a pop-up soup restaurant run by nuns called Nundos.

Soul sister – Nundos will serve food that soothes the soul

As reported by the Evening Standard, Nundos in Shoreditch, which will open from 17 to 19 October, will be run by Norfolk convent members of the Roman Catholic order of The Daughters of Divine Charity.

As you’d expect from a saintly site, the nuns will be serving up food to soothe the soul, from Mother Superior’s chicken broth and lentil soup to homemade apple pies.

The food will be free but there’s one catch – mobile phones are banned and have to be placed in an amnesty box when guests enter the restaurant.

Nundos doesn’t take bookings, but will run at the White Rabbit events space in Shoreditch between 11.30am and 8pm on 17 October and 11.30am and 3pm on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th.

The pop-up has launched as part of the Channel 5 series Bad Habits: Holy Orders, which follows five tech obsessed young women who go on a social media detox for a month in an East Anglian convent.

Diners will be encouraged to take part in “soul searching activities” in order to raise awareness about the increasing levels of anxiety facing people under 35.
