Pol Boy's Serendip Sri Lankan Supper Club in Brixton


Sri Lankan dining is coming to Brixton on Saturday 2nd March, when the Serendip supper club takes over the Brixton Pound Cafe for the evening.  It costs just £24 for the evening, to sample a number of shared plates - to be enjoyed 'family style' by the whole table - in a fun atmosphere.  Expect curries, vegetable dishes, rice and lots more from 'Pol Boy' and his friendly supper club!

"Serendip is an Old Persian name for Sri Lanka. It is also the etymological root of the word serendipity. It is said that serendipity is the hungry traveler's strongest ally: many of their most memorable meals issue from the hands of generous strangers. Serendip Supper Club is a space for strangers to discover the joys of Sri Lankan culture through the island’s food.
Rice and curry is the staple food in Sri Lanka which is why many people conflate Sri Lankan cuisine with Indian food. Yet, the food in Sri Lanka is markedly different from the food in India. A proper Sri Lankan meal will consist of an vibrant array of flavours, colours, and textures. Everything is shared on the table. There are no individual meals. Sitting down at dinner with the family will involve six or seven dishes being passed around and the family matriarchs will never allow a plate to be left without food on it for more than a few seconds.
However, Sri Lankan food is not for the unadventurous. Heavily spiced curries, tempered vegetables, and chilli-laden sambols are all full of flavour and certainly pack a punch. Watered down versions are unacceptable. At Serendip Supper Club you will find food that is unapologetically Sri Lankan."

8pm-11pm

Secret Samosa Club's Two Week Residency at Great Guns Social in SE1

.
The Secret Samosa Club, a collaboration between Joti Sohi and chef Rick Matharu, will be popping up at Great Guns Social, near Borough Market, from 19th February to 2nd March 2019.  Expect lots of samosas, plus fusion dishes like the Punjabi Cheeseburger, Chaat Fries, and Tandoori Jerk Chicken Lasagne from the award winning chef; really want to try this one!

"Joti Sohi, ex-Management Consultant and now self-made “Samosa Queen” today announces a two-week residency at Great Guns Social, kicking off on February 19th.  Joti, who first tasted creator Rick Matharu’s pastry-filled creations back in her native Canada, knew she had to be the one to bring them to London.  The residency promises a host of quirky home style classics with a Punjabi twist such as Punjabi Cheeseburger Samosas, Chaat Fries, and Tandoori Jerk Chicken Lasagne.
Joti, who is Canadian-born, met Rick in 2005 and the pair hit it off straight away. Since scooping Canada’s prestigious ‘Recipe to Riches’ $250,000 prize, Rick has been busy honing his craft and building a successful brand in Toronto’s competitive restaurant scene. When he isn’t serving Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau, he’s experimenting with new flavours and creations in his test kitchen, creating a new tradition of flavours, heritage and styles.
Rick’s unique creations have drawn widespread acclaim and London will have access to a host of his insanely good dishes which draw on his Punjabi heritage, but into which he injects a big dollop of leftfield craziness, such as the the Butter Chicken Loaded Fries – an outrageous Asian take on traditional Poutine. Or there’s the Punjabi Cheeseburger with Tandoori Bacon – a 6oz beef patty with melted cheddar, tomato, onion, shredded lettuce, sautéed onion and achari mayo, topped with tandoori spice infused bacon.  Insanely good!  And not forgetting the Rajma Bowl - a sort of twist on Mexican nachos using stewed kidney bean curry, topped with cheese, sautéed peppers, onions and corn, served with Indian pico de gallo, a crème fraiche-adobo pepper chutney, crispy onions, coriander and chilli crisps. 
Secret Samosa Club at Great Guns Social launches on Tuesday 19th February and will run for two weeks. Chef Rick will be in Borough for the duration of the residency curating daily specials created just for Great Guns."

When - From 19th February to 2nd March 2019
Tues-Fri: Lunch and Dinner: 12-3pm / 6-9.30pm
Saturday: Dinner from 6pm - 9.30pm
Sun-Mon: CLOSED
