Bunga Bunga that’s pizza amore

If your heading into London and looking for a pizza restaurant which is like no other then I highly recommend Bunga Bunga in Covent Garden. Why? As this venue is a very unique dining experience as their pizzas are a metre long, yes you heard me a metre long!, plus they put on cabaret performances throughout your dining experience. Every day has a different theme from a pizza making party to Bunga karaoke. Whichever experience you enjoy within Bunga Bunga you will certainly fall in love with this venue.

For those who might be unfamiliar with pizza it is usually round, flattened base made from wheat-based dough, topped with tomatoes, cheese, and other various topping such as mushrooms, olives, anchovies, chicken, prawns, etc. which is then baked at a high temperature, traditionally in a wood-fired oven.

Did you know? though that the term pizza was firstly recorded back in the 10th century in a Latin manuscript from Southern Italy town of Gaeta in Lazio. Modern pizza was invented in Naples, and the dish and its variants have since become popular in many countries. In fact pizza is one of the most popular foods in the world and is a common fast food item which can be enjoyed within restaurants and pizzerias. Also ready made pizzas can be bought within many supermarkets / shops from fresh to frozen ready to cook at home.

Me and some community members of Love Pop Ups London were kindly invited along to enjoy pizza like never before courtesy of Bunga Bunga Inception Group.

At Bunga Bunga we all enjoyed live entertainment by Mamma Bunga, made pizza dough, tossed dough in the air, tucked into a metre long pizza and then we partied the night away.

Bunga Bunga

Bunga Bunga is run by Inception Group who are a fun, creative and dynamic company which was founded back in 2009 by entrepreneurs Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling. The company operates a group of unique bars, restaurants and club concepts all over London.

Late 2011 Bunga Bunga popped up within London’s Covent Garden. An Englishman’s Italian where you can eat, drink and be entertained all under one roof from the early evening until the early morning.

In 2016 Bunga Bunga expanded and on their first floor they opened up a mini area called BungaTINI which is inspired by a neighbourhood back-street Italian bar and pizzeria. It serves up a range of home-made pastries, pizzas and classically simple regional dishes available to eat in or take away.

Five years later in 2017 Bunga Bunga opened up with a second location within Battersea. Which is a bigger and bolder version offering a fully immersive dining experience.

Which ever Bunga Bunga you visit though it provides a pizzeria like no other full of pizza and cabaret.

Bingo isn’t just for old people – Dabbers

Bingo has always been a big part of British culture and has been recently reignited for the younger generation as bingo is no longer a pensioner’s game!  Dabbers has recently been modernised for the younger generation bringing it into the 21st century from quirky bingo pop ups such as bingo brunches, bingo dinners, bingo parties, just about anything.

Roll up, roll up – Circus

I was invited the other day to attend Circus Christmas showcase.  That’s right their Christmas showcase.  Christmas seems to get mentioned earlier and earlier each year. Sometimes I wonder if I ever should take down and pack away my Christmas tree.  However this was a fantastic Christmas spectacular.

I enjoyed the evening along with some other community members of Love Pop Ups London. We got to lounge in the Circus cocktail bar whilst enjoying circus / cabaret style acts and indulging on Christmas pan-Asian canapés.
