For the first time ever, Darjeeling Express takes a culinary detour for a journey that begins with a classic South Indian Tiffin, meanders through a spice route in London, and ends with a Calcutta supper club. All you need are walking shoes, a Zones 1-4 London Travel Card, and a hearty appetite!

Note: You can book just the walking tour portion or just the supperclub portion of this event, but we'd love for you to join us for the day!

Your Darjeeling Express Conductors for the day are:

Michael Braga lived in Calcutta until 1987 and has since been exploring the world through its food markets and local foodie haunts. Now a flavour enthusiast, keen shopper and proud Londoner, Mike is not quite ready to let go of the flavours from home and has successfully recreated here in London, his food experiences of his childhood in Calcutta.

Bilal Patel is a British born Prestonian and his mum’s Gujarati cooking is legendary. Since he traded the North West of England for London, Bilal has been on the hunt for home-style restaurants that can match the calibre of his mum’s cooking.


Asma Khan and Pooja Vir share a hometown, a love for Bollywood, and an unconditional passion for authentic flavours. They are Darjeeling Express and can’t wait to feed you!


Note: You can book just the walking tour portion or just the supperclub portion of this event, but we'd love for you to join us for the day!
