Meatmap Friday 5 August: burgers, a jerk (chicken) fest and the Olympics opening ceremony

Pinpointing the weekend's best pop-ups and street food

1. Hoxton Bar & Grill Olympic Party

2-4 Hoxton Square, N1 Are you… are you feeling OK? Looks like you’re coming down with a nasty touch of Olympic fever! Better get that seen to by the party doctors here, who’ll be screening the opening ceremony, hosting a samba band, mixing Brazilian cocktails and serving up Smokey Tails BBQ eats tonight from 6pm ‘til late.

2. Le Bab

Kingly Court, W1 The ex-Gavroche chefs at the grills of this epic shawarma spot have gone turbo loco, whacking an entire Welsh lobster into their new must-try addition to the menu.

3. Wray’s Jerk Fest

133 Rye Lane, SE15 Saturday’s nine-hour Bussey Building hoedown between the biggest and the best spicy chicken merchants in town. Rudie’s, Mama’s Jerk, the lot.

4. Meatliquor

133b Upper St, N1 One for the history books: Saturday is the day the war against hangovers finally swings in favour of the Friday boozers. MEATLiquor’s doing brunch, and their egg and halloumi tower is the hero we’ve been praying for.

5. Honest Burgers

All sites When Honest Burgers jump into bed with outdoor cinema supremos Backyard Cinema, they create these: £10 stacks of meat, cheese, tobacco onions and “backyard mayo”, available right now.
