I’m not a big fan of November (nor February either since I’m naming names) but this was one of the most enjoyable November Sunday evenings I’ve spent in some time, exactly what was needed to brighten up the dark, chilly thoroughly depressing month. One Night in Singakong / Hongapore was a collaborative celebration by gifted cooks, Cherry and Jason, of family feast dishes from South East Asia, a mix of Hong Kongese (?), Malaysian and Singaporean dishes.
I had met Cherry (@feedthetang) from FedbyTang supperclub earlier in the year and was determined to dine at one of her events after hearing her discuss plans for future supperclubs and when I learnt that she was planning to team up with Jason (@feasttotheworld) from Singaporean supperclub Plusixfive I quickly booked tickets months in advance. I had felt it might be a good evening but it was better than that, it was excitingly delicious!
Below are a few images (they’re pretty poor I know, sorry) from the evening. To see some better images jump over to Charlotte Hu’s blog, (one of my dining-table companions that night) and salivate over her lovely photos from the event. I really enjoyed the all the dishes but the steamed seabass and the pork broth were both visually appealling so I sketched them. As to my favourite dish, well I keep changing my mind because first I think it’s the Bak Kut Teh broth until I begin to think about the soy marinated eggs or the triple-cooked pork belly or the Ngor Hiang meatballs or the Drunken Chicken with goji berries or… you get the drift. I could eat that menu on a regular basis and never get bored of it!
If you are interested in eating at either Cherry’s or Jason’s regular supperclubs (and you should be) then sign up to their blogs or book through Edible Experiences, a great little website that lists food and drink events in London.
