One of the best supper clubs yet! Everyone also brought wine to share and the event even went an hour over time because there were just some great conversations going on and no one wanted to leave. Lots of laughing, story telling and making of new friends. And of course, the completely voluntary shouting of “Ed’s Balls!” for the takoyaki course- you know people are having a good time when that happens! (Seriously, search #edsballs on Twitter. Ed is the takoyaki master!)
Keep an eye out for the next instalment of the most popular supper club- Japanese Night #5!
