A pop up restaurant from Pedro Passinhas

This Pedro Passinhas pop up operates from a denim workshop on Blackhorse Lane, in Walthamstow. It's a ticketed set-up, currently taking place three times a week, from Thursday through to Sunday. 

Passinhas has experience at restaurants including The Fat Duck, Le Gavroche and Galvin at Windows, so expect food with a nod to haute cuisine. Dishes include charred green beans with oyster and algae, braised fennel with almond milk and lardo, roasted courgette with confit garlic and douglas fir mayo, and pike-perch with shallots, buttermilk, kelp and cheddar. 

There's one booking time for each evening, with an open-kitchen, a shared table and plates delivered and explained by the chef himself.

The food is out of this world. Nothing is quite what you expect it to be, but always much more delicious. Ingredients, flavours, aromas, textures, colour and presentation all designed to ravish and yet simple, thus not pretentious. I love the underlying philosophy of cooperation and the friendly, informal welcome. THE TOPS.

Had high expectations having read the chef biography that he previously worked at Fat Duck, Le Gavroche and Galvin and the reviews below. Unfortunately, the experience wasn't up to scratch. There was no complimentary drink on arrival as stated on the website. The warehouse was quirky and had an East London feel but became freezing cold throughout the night. (Hosts should have considered maybe a heater?)

There was an attempt to be experimental but unfortunately the ingredients didn't come together. Starters included a massive piece of Sourdough bread with a huge lump of butter. (Tasted worse than any local supermarket/bakery bread e.g Sainsbury/Gails). Most diners did not finish the bread. The other dishes were either too sour or bland. The main dish was a dry, over cooked piece of beef. 

The plates were all freezing cold. (I wasn't expecting 5 star restaurant service i.e heated plates but at least not a chilling shock every time my wrist touches the plates). Towards the end of the dinner, the chef appeared to be preparing oysters?? not on our menu. This was quite possibly for tomorrow's meal when he should be focussing on his current diners. 

Overall, a disappointing and expensive experience.

Exciting, wildly inventive food in a beautiful setting and laid back atmosphere. A very special evening.

Top Class and excellent food! Fresh food and nice people. Definitely worth a visit for any occasion :)

my experience there was fantastic. I was not expecting at all such creativity and fine detail put onto those creations. the whole thing is like a full flavored trip in a magic wonderland where you have no idea what's around the corner. the proximity with the chefs just made the whole thing even more enriching. we could ask whatever we want so it turns out that behind each course there is a little curious story just to make it more interesting. top score for this one. a bit far from central London but totally worth it.

Unusual interesting location in a denim atelier.. The food was amazing! Highly recommend it to friends..

Ooh, the dilemma of the local resident... Shout about it because it's great, or keep quiet so you can get a table when you want one? Pedro's restaurant is a surprise and a treat. If you want a quirky venue off the beaten track with wow factor and like the idea of chatting to other diners around the communal table then this is the place. The food is creative, brave (bread and butter was the second course!) and delicious, and you'll be carried away by Pedro's passion and enthusiasm.

A rare dining experience in a highly unusual setting. Think of it as fine dining without the frills, where food plays centre stage and dazzles with its creativity and interaction with the friendly chefs earns it a 6th star.

Amazing experience! Pedro is truly a master of his craft. Highlights are being talked through what you are eating by the Chefs at your table. Meeting new people at the table. Look
Forward to going again soon.

Imagine going to a Michellin starred restaurant inside a denim factory.

Incredible food, amazing value for money.

An amazing dinning experience.

Will go again and recommend
