Ever had a rumbling stomach from watching people eat tasty looking food on TV and the silver screen? We don’t mean Nancy’s edible Moulin Rouge masterpiece on the ‘GBBO’ final, drool-worthy though it was. No, we’re talking crispy fried chicken from ‘Breaking Bad”s Los Pollos Hermanos, ‘Pulp Fiction”s Big Kahuna Burger and Red’s apology stew from ‘Orange Is The New Black’. Because tomorrow (October 14) this famous TV and film food is being cooked for real at a pop-up restaurant in Soho. All of the above will be available to reach out and grab like you’re Mike TV in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (without the awkward shrinking part).

Milk Bar on Bateman Street is being transformed into Virgin Media’s TV Diner, a one-day-only pop-up restaurant serving up dishes from some of your fave TV shows and films. Virgin Media and Chef Neil Rankin (the owner of The Smokehouse) have collaborated to create the dishes and event. Oh, and let’s not forget the best part: it’s FREE! Damn right. So pop over for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And remember: it’s bound to be popular so make sure you book ahead – otherwise you might have to settle for a TV dinner of a different kind. Something bland and microwaveable.
