A pop-up restaurant celebrating African cuisine has opened at the Marsden Bistro on Hackney Road.

The Bethnal Green eatery will host the event on the first Sunday of every month indefinitely.

Visitors can look forward to dishes cooked by chef Mick Élysée who combines his Congolese heritage with formal French culinary training.

Examples of what is on offer include pan fried alligator salad and grilled ostrich steak with purple mashed potatoes.

Mick said that he wanted to bring something special to the London foodies, using his travels around the world to give a unique flavour to his dishes.
