The food at Selina's supperclub was absolutely amazing. This was my first experience of Mauritian food and the second has a lot to live up to! As well as a what seemed never-ending arrival of delicious dishes, the icing on the cake to an all-round great evening with lovely vibes was the beautiful details like flower and home-made candle holders made of coconuts and pineapples! Delightful!

The Yummy Choo supper club I went to was a fundraiser for Action Against Hunger as part of their Supperheroes Campaign. I work for Action Against Hunger and know this was one of many events Selina has organised in support of the charity this year alone. This girl has a winning combination of a seriously good heart and a serious talent in the kitchen - I can't recommend going to her events enough!

yummychoo is yummy!

never tried mauritian food before until Selina's supper club. I'd describe it as similar to indian but with an exotic twist. One thing for sure was it was delicious! The atmosphere and the service was very friendly and accomodating. There was a good mix of people. Selina made sure everyone was OK and the food seemed never to run out! I definately got my money's worth. I have since booked on to the Brixton pop up supper club, see you guys again!

Great vibes, tasty food!

This was my hubby and I's first ever supperclub and it definitely won't be our last! Selina & Mama Choo provided a warm inviting atmosphere, much better than aany restuarant that I've been to with lots and lots and LOTS of food! The selection was a really great introduction to Mauritian cuisine, I loved the chicken main and the delicious fruit dessert!

I would definitely recommend if you are up for a cosy meal, and an opportunity to meet new people, or for a romantic meal for two.

I attended one of Selina’s Yummy Choo’s supper clubs in April and had a fabulous time. The atmosphere was just like going to a friend’s house for dinner and a natter but the food was out of this world scrumptious. I can’t remember what any of the dishes were called but one of my party was a vegetarian so we have loads of veggie side dishes as well as a deliciously tender chicken curry dish, bread, rice and chutneys. The starters were a mixture of bite sized treats with dips all of which were polished off in no time.
I had such a “Yummy” time that I’m trying to get a date when all my friends are free so we can have an exclusive Yummy Choo supper club. (Although my friends do like their food and wouldn’t hold back on taking the last bit of chicken so maybe I won’t invite them!) :-)

I had the pleasure of attending Selina’s, aka Yummy Choo Eats, first Mauritian Supper Club. Hosted in Selina’s house in Croydon, the supper club consisted of starters, main dishes and a dessert, all made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. With the help of ‘Mama Choo’, she put together a fantastic 3 course dinner that left us full and satisfied.

With a total of twelve diners, plus Selina’s husband, mum and in-laws, it felt more like a big family reunion and there was a lovely and warm atmosphere! We arrived at the dinner just after 7pm and had the time for a rum cocktail before sitting down for dinner. The starters consisted in crispy Chilli Cakes (Gateaux Piment) and Aubergine Fritters (Gateau Bringele), some aromatic Coriander Chutney and a fresh Cucumber Salad.

The main course was impressive – I was glad that I had eaten very little all day and prepared my stomach for this beautiful feast!

The cuisine of Mauritius is a blend of Creole, Chinese, European and Indian influences. As a main course we had Chicken curry (Cari Poulet), Potato and Butterbean curry (Grois Pois), Tomato Chutney (Rougaille) and lentil flat bread (Dhall Pouri) – though they might be inspired by Southern Indian cuisine, the Mauritian recipes have their own distinctive flavours and taste – more delicate and sweet. Also the way of eating the bread is very different from India, as we were told to make a wrap with it, rather than dip pieces in the curry.

As part of the main course, we also tried an exotic vegetable named Chou Chou, a coconut paste (Chatini Coco), pilau rice and pickles.

Dessert was a generous slice of Polenta Cake (Pudine Mais). A hot cup of chai at the end of the meal was exactly what I needed.

Yummy Choo Eats’ Supper Club was my first encounter with Mauritian culture and it is clear that food is an important part of it. I wish Selina a great success in promoting Mauritian cuisine in London, this dinner was certainly a great start!
