YAHALA MATAAM – YORK’S POP-UP REFUGEE RESTAURANT
June 23, 2022 - June 24, 2022
York’s Pop-up Refugee Restaurant is hosting 2 restaurant nights in refugee week. Both events will be held at The Citadel, Gillygate. Y031 7EA. Tables can be booked at www.yahalarestaurant.co.uk
Thursday 23rd June – Syrian Pop up night
The refugee team at Yahala Mataam are well experienced at serving up an authentic Arabic feast in York. This week, the Syrian team is offering you the opportunity to try out their new menu, but don’t worry we’ll still be serving our signature Falafels & hummus!
Friday 24th June – Afghan Pop Up night
During refugee week we’re offering you the opportunity to taste a different cuisine, hear stories from another culture and make a difference for those stuck in conflict in another land. In collaboration with the University of York and a new team of Afghan nationals, we invite you to join us for a traditional Afghan meal and much more.
The evening will start with an exhibition of artwork by photographer Andy Barnham, entitled “We Are Here, Because You Were There: Afghan Interpreters in UK ” at 6.30pm. We also have a number of short talks throughout the evening considering the situation in Afghanistan currently and the experience of Afghan refugees settling in the UK.
This meal will be a fundraiser, with all the profits from the evening going to help Afghan nationals who are stuck in the country.
