The Dolphin

Sometimes, they manage it – they stay til 2am and we are all happily drinking the remains of any wine anyone has left behind and then someone says – “lets go to The Dolphin!” and Simon will immediately respond, “brilliant!!!”

On Friday/ Saturday night, dinner was:
-Rice Pasta With Pork Scratchings, Vietnamese Salami (Lac Xung),
Corriander, Grated Egg & Sweet Soy Sauce
-Miso Aubergine

-Summer Rolls With Omlette, Prawns, Shredded Pork Skin, BBQ Pork,
Mint, Sweet Basil & Cured Vietnamese Ham

-Carrot, Corriander & Chicken Salad W/ Prawn Crackers

-Salmon Sashimi & Chips

-Won Ton Noodle Soup 

-Caramelized & Braised Coconut Pork Belly & Quails Egg With Rice
-Coconut & Lime Pannacotta With Mango Jelly
It was one of the smoothest operation – we even finished dessert by 11pm. Record!
It was strange as I didn’t greet our guests and stayed heavily in the kitchen making everything with Simon. Our lovely waitress, Mia welcomed and served everybody and so at the end, I felt so shy about being downstairs with a bunch of people I had never met before. I understood how Simon has been feeling all these months when he is the one always upstairs in the kitchen.

It was so great to come and join our guests for dessert and saw how people sitting on the same table had made friends with each other and were having such a good time. The best thing about having a supper club is meeting people and making friends. We had a great time with a group of girlie friends. We all went to The Dolphin...

The Dolphin is a shabby, dirty, old man’s bar that has been made trendy by Hackney coolies open til 4am. It’s a place where if you are in good company, you will always have a good time. But please don’t encourage us to take you there – please!


  1. Uh oh. You know the cats out of the bag now and we're bound to insist on it the next time we visit you! Thanks for an amazing night! xxx

  2. The menu looks stunning as usual, and i am so gutted we never ended up at The Dolphin... I remember leaving your supper club well after 3am once! Glad you managed to relax though after a day's work.
