Serving up soul food at new London restaurant run by nuns

‘Soul food’ will take on a whole new meaning for diners across London, as they treat themselves next week to a bite to eat at a new pop-up restaurant run by a group of Catholic nuns: NUNdos.

The pun-tastically named restaurant will see diners join members of the Daughters of Divine Charity for some ‘food for the soul’, where Sisters serve up Mother Superior’s Chicken Broth or Wholesome Lentil Soup, all free of charge.

However, the despite its non-existent price tag, diners are encouraged to put their phones away and speak with other diners and the Sisters about modern life.

The pop-up restaurant, which is open from October 17-19, has come as part of a new Channel 5 series Bad Habits: Holy Orders which sees five millennial women live in a convent for four weeks.
