There’s A Star Wars-Themed Restaurant Coming to London

In possibly the best intergalactic event since Secret Cinema: The Empire Strikes Back, an Italian cooking-duo is bringing their Star Wars-themed pop-up restaurant to the big smoke. Yup, that’s right, space-food experts Francesca and Alessandro of Barrel Forks open The Fork Awakens for seven nights at a secret London location on June 23.

The pop-up supper club promises “strong drinks, hot tunes, and occasional outbreaks of shocking violence.” It also has one damn fine cosmic menu.

Ladies and gents, the menu for #theforkawakens is ready. To find out more about the event http://bit.ly/1PFyOwy

For starters you can tuck into Tatooine muddy soup with Alderaan olive oil – get it while you can, there’s a shortage now the planet’s been blown up. Then beef up your menu with some delicious mini banthaburgers. Or, if you’d rather something more filling, gulp down some Hutt dogs instead – no word yet if they contain any part of Jabba. Finally, there’s no better dish to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours than Wasaka-berry pudding. Reportedly picked fresh by a team of Jawas.

Thirsty? Then hop over to the bar for a lethal-sounding Jedi lightsaber cocktail. Just don’t drink too much or you might end up losing a limb…

As you’d expect, fancy dress is highly recommended. But don’t worry, it’s not a trap. Chances are everyone will look as ridiculous as each other.

Tickets for this interstellar dining experience start at £55 per head and are available here. The event runs from June 23 to July 2nd.
