Thoughthere are some gems that continue to be timeless, never losing their magic, regardless of how many cereal/porridge/cat eateries that may crop up in east London. Take Leluu Supper Club. For the last five years, Uyen Luu has been serving up some of London’s best Vietnamese dishes from her home in London Fields. Much like a dinner party in the tradition of a Vietnamese feast, the evening is an intimate gathering of no more than 25 people in her stunning, airy home – think white-washed walls, floor to ceiling book shelving, antique crockery, and a super friendly team that assist Uyen in ensuring the whole experience is seamless. The eight-course set menu is authentic, fresh and simply delicious. And you can expect mouth-watering dishes such as beef in aromatic betel leaves; Saigon fresh rolls with pork belly, prawns and mint; prawn lollies in sugar cane; and of course, pho. The suggested donation is £35 per person.
And quite frankly, some of the best pho we have ever tasted.When not cooking up a storm, Uyen is also a cookbook author, as well as a food photographer and stylist. Plans are also afoot to extend the supper club to another venue in east/north London. So be sure to keep your eyes peeled. Our final words of wisdom? Arrive on an empty stomach. You’ve got to trust us on this. The next available supper club evenings are from August onwards.
