Ok...excitement over... Yes... You read right... I will be having my first ever Supperclub in my humble abode here in seriously rocking Camberwell together with fellow foodie @Cheapeatsblog aka Barry to cook up a serious fusion of sorts mashing Malaysian and Filipino food down to the desert for a night to remember.
After much to-ing and fro-ing, attending brunches and crashing @plusixfive aka Goz n @feasttotheworld aka Jason's supperclub with my Serimuka (you guys r great btw for letting me crash) and then a successful first time brunch with @flavoursofspain aka Teresa and Ana, @Bowman80mark aka Mark and @rainbow_h2o aka Jeanette (there is a serious movement of twitters out there), it got me thinking. Plus, Goz of course invited to see whether I'd do a supperclub too at his place, things sorta got set in motion.
A consensus on twitter and encouragement from friends has led us to come up with.... (drumroll............) BUDAYA KUSINA!!!!!
Taking the two cultures, the Filipino and the Malaysian and fusing it with our languages and food, Budaya Kusina was born. Kusina means kitchen in Tagalog while Budaya is culture in Malay. Thus meaning kitchen culture in English. Ok... That aside, you must be wondering what the menu is????? Here it is...
Kuih Rose - fried Malaysian coconut milk biscuits shaped like roses
Inang-Inang - fried sticky rice much like rice crackers but ala Malaysian style
Roti Jala - Malaysian turmeric net pancakes with 3 dips
Pork Belly Adobo
Malay slow-cooked Beef Rendang
Achar Awak - Malaysian pickled vegetables
Steamed Okra with dried prawn sambal sauce
Ibus - Filipino sticky rice
Kaffir lime leaf sorbet
Pineapple tarts w Malaysian aerated tea - Teh Tarik with tea dust from Sabah
Wow!!!! That many dishes!!!! Must be expensive!!!! Well... As this is our first supperclub outing, we will only be charging £20 for the whole night. Corkage is free!!! Lol!!! And who knows!! You might just get a surprise gift too!
