An Asian Dessert Platter Surprise
For the past few years, Ning Ma and her mum, aka Mama Lan, have been serving lovingly handmade Beijing dumplings and street snacks from their popular supper club and now in their tiny little restaurant in Brixton Village market.
All the dishes from Mama Lan are made from generations old family recipes. The history of Mama Lan’s extends way back to a time just after the cultural revolution in China where Ning's mum and granddad used to run a dumpling and snack stall on the bustling streets of Beijing.
Two Hungry Girls
Two Hungry Girls. One Mission. To bring Creative Chinese Cuisine to London.
From classic recipes to contemporary interpretations, Two Hungry Girls want to arrest your palate with the intoxicating flavours of Straits and Mainland Chinese cuisine. They believe in traditional cooking styles, homemade condiments and service with cheeky smiles.
Whilst always staying true to authentic Chinese flavours, they love using creative license to push your tastebuds.
Fresh, aromatic and exotic, serai (Malay for lemongrass) is an essential ingredient in South East Asian and Malaysian cooking. Wild Serai is a nostalgic celebration of the very best of Malaysian cooking, with a strong Malay and Nyonya influence.
Wild Serai pick and source the very best ingredients from Malaysia, ranging from Kangkung to the very hard to get, Bintulu Belacan. They focus on ambitious ambitious but good old fashioned slow home cooked Malaysian soul food – just the way their grandmothers used to make it.
£45 + £3.15 booking fee per person. There will be at least 6 dishes.

I was very surprised to read the previous reviews of this supperclub as they did not match our experience at all. Maybe things changed from one night to the next, and that is the explanation. We went on the Saturday and had both fabulous food and fabulous service.
We were fed extremely generous amounts of food that came in a steady flow all evening. The lamb buns, pot stickers, poached chicken and chilli crab were just some of the highlights. Food was served on platters for the tables to share which was entirely appropriate for the type of food and event. We were particularly struck by the level of service - there were a higher than usual number of front of house staff and all were attentive and friendly. We were particularly impressed that all the cooks also managed to spend time chatting with us about the food. The organiser, Florian, knew his wines well and helped us choose a Jurancon sec that went perfectly with the spicy food. It was also priced fairly.
It is true that the special and unique thing about supperclubs is that they are intimate affairs in people's homes and you get to know other guests. You also normally bring your own wine. We knew this one would feel very different as it was being held in a smart venue in South Ken and was part of a special summer series. My only suggestion would be to somehow find space for mingling over drinks rather than to seat us immediately. And/or have bigger tables so there is more of a communal feel.
I hope the cooks and organisers are not disheartened by the previous comments as the Saturday night was fantastic and very good value for money. They are talented chefs and the organisation and hosting was super-smooth. I write as a professional cook myself.
Thank you! Wild Serai, Mamalan & Two Hungry Girls
Having enjoyed previous feasts by Wild Serai in her home, which featured wonderful, authentic Malaysian dishes (highly recommended), the organisation of this event was a disappointment and poor value for money.
The focus of the passion and skill of the chefs had been replaced by the organiser, Florian Siepert, wishing to scale up the event to make money. Any form of customer service in the planning of the event and during the evening was negligible. SupperClubs are renown for an intimate atmosphere, enjoyed with others who are passionate about national foods. Everyone is encouraged to BYO so that you drink what you think suits best. At the last moment, the organiser informed all diners that BYO was not allowed and then failed to offer reasonable or appropriate drinks. The heavy handed way that he handled the evening, the slow service and the expensive wine, all added up to his event being a damp squib compared to usually fabulous SupperClubs.
As supperclub hosts and food industry professionals who are sensitive to customer service, we apologise that your experience was any less than that of a regular supperclub. The venue and the occasion dictated a different situation for us, from which we have learnt and taken your feedback into consideration. Wild Serai, Mamalan & Two Hungry Girls
I hugely enjoyed my Two Hungry Girls experience last night. Great food, unique dishes, inventive flair... However, I would echo the other reviewer's comments that it could have been a little more polished - Starter 1 was vinegared Chinese vegetables and could have been on the tables on arrival, whilst the delay on mains and desserts was inexcusable - and what a shame, because the curried crab and the dessert platter were two of the loveliest most interesting dishes I have had the joy to eat in a long long time. Practice makes perfect? Thank you though!! A fab night.
Our party of 4 have been left feeling very disappointed with our dining experience last night.
We did not expect the sharing plate style of service and really did not feel that we received value for money with what was served. We were also frustrated that the servers forgot to bring rice to our table and so it was served after the main food! Portion sizes for sharing plates on tables for 12 were poor and the wine was not, as advertised, good value for money either.
We apologise for the late response and are very sorry that you had a less than ideal service during your time at the Supperclub Summit. With regard to the sharing plate style of service, this is a very typical Asian way of serving food, whether in an Asian family home or larger banquet. It was appropriate for our menu but perhaps should have introduced this style to all diners before the start of the meal. We take your feedback on board and will work to improve things for future events. Wild Serai, Mamalan & Two Hungry Girls.
