With Table for 10 set for another amazing Supperclub this weekend, we caught up with MJ and Damon to find out what all the fuss is about.
What is your supper club?
Damon: We run a Vietnamese supper club in Whitechapel. We do the classic, authentic Vietnamese dishes as my mum would make it at home like spicy beef noodles or the ubiquitous pho. And we also do dishes with modern twists – for example our steak tartare is an updated take on both the French and Vietnamese style of the dish. It’s won over a lot of diners who were initially hesitant on raw beef. Oh and our cocktails are pretty awesome sauce. Alcohol is my first love!
Why did you decide to set it up?
MJ: A year ago Damon was made unemployed and he’s always wanted to open a restaurant. We didn’t have enough confidence or experience to open a restaurant so decided to do a supper club to try out the product. We’ve loved the experience and even though both of us are working now, we want to continue refining the product until we can make Damon’s dreams come true.
Damon: The ambiance at Table for 10 is special. We’ve had fantastic feedback that it feels more like a dinner party where the guests stay way into the night rather than a place you eat, pay, and leave. And of course, the Vietnamese food is great and cocktails are strong 😉 Oh and we have monkeys in the bathroom (not really).
What is your favourite memory so far?
What is your signature/favourite dish and drink etc?
Why should we come and visit you?
Damon: MJ is really really good looking and he’ll take his clothes off for money as we’ve seen already. Plus you’ll be in for a treat – many of the dishes we do, you won’t find in other Vietnamese restaurants in London and the ones you can find, we go the extra mile and you’ll be able to taste the difference.
Aside from yourselves what are you favourite supper clubs?
