What we are cooking this week

Some of you asked for drunken chicken and we heard you; it’s on the menu this week. But it takes a good few days to marinate it to get it properly “drunken”, so you must let me know by tomorrow morning IF you want it. For the rest of the menu, please email or text your order to me by end of Tuesday. Pick up is on Thursday from 12:30pm at 13 Montagu Place, W1H 2ET. Pork Sheng Jian Bao 鲜肉生煎 – £11 for a box of 5 cooked or a box of 6 frozen Drunken Chicken 醉鸡 – £15。 I use bone-in corn-fed chicken thighs. Must be ordered by Monday morning the 11th.  Steamed eggplants 凉拌落苏 – £11. It’s a cold dish you eat at room temperature and is light and refreshing. Soy beans & pickled garlic mustard 雪菜毛豆 – £11. The pickled mustard leaves used here is foraged near London and made by a friend of ours. It tastes just like the Xuecai mustard we have in Shanghai.

Zongzi Takeaway

Zongzi Takeaway

In Chinese culture, we make a lot of foods specifically as temple or ancestral offerings. I suspect they are all excuses to eat something that otherwise would be considered a luxury in an everyday diet. At Shanghai Supper Club we certainly love following these traditions as they are a perfect way to try different foods across different seasons. So for the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival on 18th June, we will be offering Zongzi for takeaway for the next few weeks. There are 2 flavours: pork belly at £4 each and red beans at £3.50 each. Minimum order is 4 pieces. They are available from Monday 21 May through Monday 18 June. Please place your order at least 24 hours in advance, as we make them fresh daily in the morning.  Pick-up is from W1H 2ET. Delivery can be arranged with a fee.  Please email us for a...
A take-out menu to celebrate turning 1!!

A take-out menu to celebrate turning 1!!

It was a year go this week I was sitting in my kitchen trying to hatch a perfect plan to start a new career doing something I’m passionate about – food! – while still giving me the flexibility to be a full-time mom when the kids get home.  A friend said to me:”Just cook something, and invite a few friends around. We will tell you honestly whether there is a market for Shanghai homecooking.”  So, I threw away the pen and paper, and picked up my knife and chopping board and started cooking. At the end of that lunch a week later, Shanghai Supper Club was born!! They gave me my first take-out orders based on that menu. So, to celebrate that life-changing lunch and a year of happy cooking, we are bringing you some of the favourites from last year’s take-out menus.   MENU Pork and Chinese cabbage pan-fried dumplings 白菜猪肉锅贴 with our homemade wrapper – 10 for £12 Braised pork belly 红烧肉 in a dark and treacly soy sauce. – £15 Spinach & tofu salad 马兰头 (v) with blanched and finely chopped spinach and tofu – £10 Steamed aubergines 清蒸茄子(v) Steaming makes the aubergines melt-in-your-mouth soft.  – £10 Stir-fried rice cake 炒年糕 (v) with Shiitake mushroom, Chinese cabbage and chicken slivers – £12 Onion oil noodles with dried shrimp 开洋葱油面 (v) This is the Chinese version of pasta aglio e olio.
