Fake Twitter Account Pokes Fun At Foodie Culture

Popup London makes fun of the city's restaurant culture, tweeting meals from fake pop-up restaurants.

London foodies, there is a new twitter account to follow, that posts about meals at all the latest popup openings across the capital – except that none of them are real. Popup London (@FoodPit) is a scathing parody Twitter account that satirizes the trendy pop-up restaurant scene and London’s new obsession with food carts and American BBQ. With short and sweet reviews of fictional meals, the account skewers the pomp and snobbery that accompanies the capital’s foodie culture. It is biting and funny, and suggests that maybe £20 ($30) burgers and no-reservation places are not the be-all and end-all.

Below is a sampling of the @Foodpit’s satirical waxings:
