An amazing South-American inspired 6 course meal set in a Victorian tube carriage!
Before we go-ahead, this post is not sponsored, I loved my visit to the Supperclub that I wanted to let you know about it.
I was lucky enough to dine in the former tube carriage in early July 2021. It is located next to the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum with St James Street (Overground) and Blackhorse Road (Victoria Underground & Overground) being the nearest Stations to the the tube carriage.
The menu is created by chef Bea, who (as she explained to us at the beginning of the evening) cooks her food inspired by her South American roots. The menu was available online prior to booking, with vegetarians catered for too. A QR code based menu was provided when we were seated which provided additional information on each dish such as specific ingredients that we have not previously come across.
Due to the booth set up that we sat in, it felt incredibly intimate. They also have a table within the carriage which catered for larger groups.
It is incredibly simple to book – simply follow the Book Seats link on their website here which will let you book for you and your guests. You are also able to view the most up-to-date menu on the website too.
Upon booking, communication was great, Bea personally emailed beforehand to ask for any allergies, which they double-checked with us once we arrived on the tube carriage.
All food is freshly prepared on site and from what I read on the website, they cater for a variety of diets including vegetarians and a range of allergies. The menu changes throughout the year depending on seasonality.
Once seated all dinners are treated with a welcome drink – either prosecco or Negroni. The menus and a drinks list are accessible from a QR code and provide detailed infromation on what is being served.
For starters we had a warm dish off chorizo with cassava bread, which was followed by yellow mash and asparagus served with a tasty cream. All the ingredients and ideas behind each dish were explained on the QR menu. This was followed by tofu and – those who eat fish were served mackerel to replace the tofu. Lamb served with red mole was served as the main and oh my – the lamb was cooked so well as it was extremely tender. The mole sauce smelt like chocolate but it went incredibly well with the lamb.
We had a palate cleanser of rhubarb sorbet with Tonka bean dust. I am not the greatest fan of rhubarb however I devoured this quickly. Finally, due to my sweet tooth – we finished on my favourite course – dessert. It was the cake version of a mojito with the lightest sponge I have ever had – Bea, if you are reading this I would love to get the recipe!
It is clear to see that Bea and her team put in their full effort to create amazing dishes and to make us feel welcomed and special.
Tasty and well presented food, friendly staff and a quirky location! Makes for a perfect and memorable dinner which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.
I would love to go back when a new menu is available and happily relive the whole experience again.
