Kelis is to open a pop-up burger restaurant in London.
KELISxLEBUN is in association with burger restaurant Le Bun. It will open at London’s Leicester House on July 6, 7, 13 and 14 before hitting Standon Calling festival.
It will serve buns and South American arepa buns that Kelis enjoys.
The restaurant began after Le Bun founders Andy Taylor and Tim Talbot learned Kelis is headlining Standon Calling, where Le Bun provide food.
Kelis said: “I’ve been looking forward to bringing my cooking to London for years. This July I’m over for lots of festivals and it’s the perfect time to finally make this pop up restaurant dream a reality. The Le Bun guys are the perfect partners and I can’t wait for everyone to have a taste.”
Kelis trained in cooking at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu school. She released a cookbook, My Life On A Plate in 2014 and has released her own range of sauces, Bounty & Full.
As well as playing Love Supreme, Brownstock, Tramlines, Y Not, Kendall Calling and Standon Calling festivals, Kelis plays four shows at the newly re-opened London Jazz Café on July 5-6, 16 and 18. Her most recent album was 2014’s ‘Food’.
