Gaijin x Kanpai Supper Club & Sake Pairing

GAIJIN is an intimate fifteen-seat “Anglo-Japanese” chef's table restaurant run by Paul Frost and Jona Higgins. Drawing on British seasonal ingredients and inspired by their experiences travelling, working and living in Japan, the menu pays homage to Japanese soul food (洋食 yōshoku) as much as to fine dining.  The atmosphere is relaxed and informal – taking cue from Tokyo izakayas. 

We fell in love with this supper club when we visited a few months ago, and now we're over the moon to be teaming up for one special night of sake-pairing to their 12 immaculately prepared courses. The attention to detail and quality of ingredients is truly second to none and we can't wait to compliment it with extra umami kicks from our sakes, including experimental batches not yet on sale! 

Now English autumn is in full swing, GAIJIN have developed a new seasonal menu that showcases some of the best produce around. Expect to see British ceps, smoked eel, horse mackerel, Wangus beef (a special Wagyu/Angus crossbreed!), winter truffles and last but not least, fresh British grown wasabi. Plus icecream make from our Kanpai sake lees!

Booking
The meal is an 12-course "omakase" tasting menu priced at £70 + service (this includes five paired drinks). A £25 deposit is required for your booking (paid via PayPal or bank transfer), with the remainder paid by cash on the night. 

If you’d like to come, please contact info@gaijinclub.co.uk with the following in your email: 
1. Email Subject Line: GAIJIN X KANPAI SUPPER CLUB
2. Number of seats
3. A mobile number for the lead person in the group

Once you’ve confirmed the above, we'll send over directions and further details. The location is Hackney Wick (1 minute from Hackney Wick Overground). The meal starts at 7pm sharp!
