Melting Pot London is a family run pop-up serving a fusion of international comfort food classics with an emphasis on ingredients and flavours from across the black diaspora. From “mum’s jollof” jambalaya to jerk jackfruit taco salad, each dish is inspired by the diverse cultural heritage and global travels of two food-loving Londoners, who came together to create something original and unique within the London food scene.
