My first supper club experience, and I need not look further. I went to 2 (actually it was 3) Little Mermaids fish night. The 'Mermaids' were up at 5am to go to Billingsgate, and with their catch they produced 7 fish dishes from around the world, as well as 3 side dishes and 2 desserts. Each dish was the best I've ever tasted - the Cantonese steamed seabass was the freshest I've ever had, Fillipino mackerel 'cerviche' in coconut was sublime, as were the Vietnamese prawn spring rolls with fresh herbs and grilled squid with mango and avocado salsa. Spaghetti vongole was amongst the best I've tasted, Indian baked fish with fresh green herbs mouthwatering, grilled mackerel with green bean and caper salad a touch of magic. I loved the salads and broccoli with garlic and chilli too.
The Mermaids really excelled themselves on the night, and managed to stay awake and be sociable and funny too. For what? Not for money - we paid just £5 each for the ingredients. And donated £25 to my favourite charity MSF. There were some very happy guests - some serial visitors - and tummies, but the real winners are all the people they are helping around the world. What a great concept. What great people. Well done Mermaids! I look forward to your next culinary incarnation!
Great experience, amazing house and great company ranging from City finance to creative industry professionals. Never a dull moment! The food is varied, tasty and not usually found in restaurants i.e. would only ever get it if home cooked. Most of the dishes have personal stories associated with them e.g. a rare family recipe. Been to Nyonya night and Hainanese Chicken Rice blow-out (had to starve myself viciously the whole day before the dinner and still came away totally FULL). Excellent value for money and better still, a great way to support Medicin sans Frontiere.
This one is a real gem. I must confess to having lost count how often I've been to one of these evenings. What keeps me going back is the diversity and originality of the cooking, the enthusiastic, personable hosting and the ever interesting company. My only complaint is the overeating which I can only blame myself for.
In short, expect top restaurant cooking combined with homeliness at a price that wont break the bank. And to top it off, the majority of the money goes to a good cause.
