So i went to a supper club a few days ago. Yes, i hear you asking, what the hell is a supper club?
Well, my lovely readers, it is something of a mix between a dinner party and a restaurant, except for the fact that you are in a room full of strangers eating somebody else’s food. Some people call it underground dining or even rogue dining. What it really is, is a way for people that love eating and cooking food to come together and just have a good time.
So now that’s out of the way, lets get to the experience. It was a little weird at first, because it was the first time that i’d been to a ‘supper club’ and whats even more scary was that i went alone, which was incredibly daunting. I mean, isn’t any new experience which you take on alone extremely scary.
yes i hear you say. thats what i though my darlings.
It was a good thing for me though, as somewhat of an introvert, it was good to be able to just laugh and mingle with new people and well the food was superb too.
I had fish with plantain, and mojo verde (which was so good, and had a bit of a kick to it) and black beans. That had to be my favourite course, but mostly its because I’ve never really had that much of a sweet tooth. Plus mama likes her mains. From what i can gather, this is quite a frequent thing happening in london now. Food and wine lovers everywhere are getting together and eating until they can’t eat anymore whilst meeting like minded people. The london bridge destination of Flamingo, Flamingo was a little hard to find, but once i was there and the ice thawed, it just made me appreciate all the weird and wonderful things london has to offer. I think that i had a great time.
So have any of you lovely people every been to a ‘supper club’ before? If so, what was it like? Do tell.
Also, happy new year folks! thank you so much for reading my drabble all year long, and hopefully we all have a great and exciting 2013 ahead of us!
