I have had a lot of Jamaican food here in London and its very rare that I find anything that is worth writing about. I attended Lisa's Jamaican summer feast and I was in for a real treat. The service, setting and the food was faultless. It was clear that Lisa is passionate about cooking. The food was authentic and reminded me of being back home in Jamaica in my mother's kitchen. I would recommend Lisa's Jamaican Supper club to anyone who wants a real taste of authentic Jamaican food. I will certainly be going again.
I have never been to a supper club before and the idea of secret dining was quite enticing. However I was unsure what to expect. I was blown away by how professional everything was. From the greeting to the table setting and the general ambience, everything was just PERFECT!! The food left me speechless for once. We started with ackee and salt fish served up with breadfruit chips which was a perfect companion for the ackee and salt fish. There was also Jamaican bread which was good a match with the ackee. This was followed by a savory pumpkin fritters which I really enjoyed.
The main dishes were stew peas served with rice. I'm salivating while typing this and my tummy growls with the memory of the oxtail and red kidney beans melting in my mouth. Next on the menu was a kind of prawn and cabbage curry dish cooked in fresh coconut. This went down well with the white rice which apparently was just plain basmati rice but even this was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. OMG!! Then there was the guava Jerk chicken. In a statement? “Tantalizingly more-ish” I have had jerk chicken before but not guava jerk chicken. There was just enough spice to compliment the sweetness of the guava and the chicken was moist on the inside and crispy on the outside.teh flavors and textures went together perfectly. At one point there was a hush around the room except for the clutter of knives and forks on plate. I looked around only to see that the other guests were enjoying the food as much as I was
Just before pudding was served we were invited for a quick drink by the riverside terrace and the view of Canary Wharf after dark was just breath taking. This just topped what was already a perfect evening but there was more to come. After about 20 minutes of chatting and just enjoying the view we went back upstairs where a trio of puddings awaited us. First there was the corn brulee which left my taste buds begging for more. This was followed by the most delicious ripe banana fritters I have ever eaten. Finally there was the reggae hot chocolate. By now I was so full I didn’t think I could have another morsel but when I smelled the hot chocolate I could not resist. Hot chocolate was personalized with different flavored Jamaican rum cream and each guest got to choose their own flavor we all thought this was pretty cool. I chose the banana flavor and man oh man was it good. I had to resist asking for more as by then I felt I would need help getting home from how full I was.
I am still surprised that I could find such wonderful, well cooked and authentic Caribbean food in London. All in all the best Jamaican food I have ever had. Lisa and her assistant were so accommodating and the attention to detail was impeccable. In the end I felt like I was truly dining in the comfort of a home where the passion and love can be felt in the food served. Well done Lisa. I cannot wait for your next supper.
