These experiential food pop-ups range from mobile fashion cafes to beauty bar eateries that combine cosmetic treatments with tasty menu items. In addition to KENZO's mobile boutique in Dubai -- a branded truck that featured a moving retail space and casual cafe -- other notable examples include breakfast sneaker bars like a recent installation by KITH NYC. The brand's food pop-up paired guests' favorite sneaker styles with nostalgic menu items like snack bowls that consisted of Rice Crispies, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and other household names.

In addition to fashion-focused examples, other standouts include pop-up Ramadan cafes and sitcom-celebrating eateries that pay tribute to titles like 'Friends' and 'Breaking Bad.'

Moreover, food pop-ups like Japane's Beauty Library blend spa treatments with artisanal coffee beverages and homemade food items while temporary restaurants like Picture House let visitors pay for meals with a hashtagged image that is shared to social media channels like Instagram or Twitter.
