WE THINK: We are great fans of this cute little South London cafe and try to pay a visit whenever we're in town. This time, the talented and handsome former Brunswick House head chef and Clove Club gang member Nicholas Balfe was doing a pop-up supper club inspired by Carribean barbeque. Co-owner Kanji Kohanda was working the bar, producing some very tasty elderflower mules made from elderflowers hand-picked in a local London park. The food, prepared on the New Cross Road sidewalk amid wet London June winds and constant traffic, was quite the success and included a beautiful starter of ox hearts topped with delicious scotch bonnet ketchup (which we want as a staple in our kitchen), delicious squid and pig's cheeks and a refreshing smoked yoghurt dessert, all finished off by a chocolate, caramel and malt bomb. Boom!
