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.

SeeSushi

Sushi/ Sashimi selection

Seewoo has a Japanese fusion restaurant in Paddington, just off Praed Street by Edgware Road station, in by the bit with the canal. I’ve been there last year with Lucy Mitchel, daughter of Stanely Tse, founder of the fabulous Seewoo Oriental supermarkets. Click here to read what I have previously written about Seewoo/ Stanley Tse.

Ever since my meal with Lucy there, I had been dreaming about the black cod. It was like one of those perfect kisses that never leave your mind, sweet, soft, succulent and sinks onto your tongue and slips away, like a tease. Phrwoar!  They invited me and a guest to dine at the restaurant and immediately, I thought – YES! I am going to have the black cod. Here’s the menu.

Black Cod

The chef at SeeSushi makes a secret sweet and savoury miso dressing for the black cod which stuns my taste buds and is great with some steamed rice. I am not entirely sure how I could ever possibly recreate this dish at home as Seewoo do sell black cod in their store in Greenwich. I am guessing it has been marinated in mirin, miso paste, soy/ teriyaki and sake and then grilled. Mark my word, this is something to lust over.

Vegeatable Gyoza
Eel

We also had gyoza, because I always have gyoza, tonkatsu, a sushi/ sashimi selection from the chef and a plate of half an eel – also wonderfully delicious! Then a very good, bitter and sweet green tea ice cream.

Green Tea Ice Cream

It is hard to imagine crossing town to eat in Paddington. Who goes there unless they have to? Or if they live nearby? But I can see myself having a lovely lunch here on a sunny day, overlooking the canal and getting seduced by fish.  I do like the food here a lot.

Thank you to Seewoo who kindly invited me to dine here and therefore, I did not pay for this meal.
