Supper Club

Supper Club

The supper club is held in my home in London Fields, Hackney. It is like a dinner party in the tradition of a Vietnamese feast with homemade Vietnamese food.

Vietnamese food is about the balance of flavours, of sweet, salty and sour – there is no measuring device that can ever match your own taste buds.

Kimchee – High Holborn

As a Blogger, you can sometimes get spoiled rotten. I was invited to eat Korean food at the modern, Kimchee in High Holborn. As I love Korean food and have spent quite a lot of time there, I waddled along for 5 courses of a Korean feast, each course, consisting of about 4 or 5 plates of food.

The Koreans usually eat with plenty of garnishing and pickles to accompany a dish so it is not unusual for the table to be filled with side dishes. In Korea, you do not even order them, everything comes with a ray of sides and importantly, it all comes with their national dish – kimchee.

The feast we had was amazing, from seafood and kimchee pancakes to jjigae (red chilli pepper miso soup with seafood, meat or kimchee), beautiful silky strips of steak tartare, kiwi marinaded beef and chicken bulgogi to bimbimbab – rice, pickles and meat cooked in a hot stone bowl. We got to try it all and I must say, the food is utterly stunning on this feast, especially the lemon sole – which is fried and has a sweet miso soy sauce dressing and the beef mari – a slice of raw beef rolled with cucumber and peppers. I loved it all, as I do love good Korean food.

Each course was also paired with some of Korea’s most favoured spirits such as makgeoli – a fermented rice drink to shoju – distilled from grains, bek se ju – fermented herbs and ginseng to goon mae – plum wine.

We were able to talk about and exercise Korean table ettiquettes, like holding your glass to be poured with both hands, that someone else should always pour your drink for you, that you don’t do it yourself and how the elder can always hold a glass with just one hand to be poured a drink.

I would definitely like to come back here with friends based on my experience at this feast. And here was where I had the best green tea ice cream!

Great fun! Thanks to Roche Communications.

  • Shucks! So shoulda gone.

    Though I did have an anaemic bibimbap later in the week.

  • That green tea ice cream was amazingly good. Even after ALL THAT food, I asked for an EXTRA scoop of that, can you believe it? So good!
