It was my sisters birthday this week and to celebrate we wanted to do something a little different so found Jimmy’s Pop Up BBQ Club, an outpost of his popular restaurants in a secret garden in leafy Clapham Old Town.
A super fun concept, you have your own Little Green Egg BBQ on your table, this BBQ is very sought after, David Beckham just got one for his birthday!!! Dinner is served very cleverly, they give you a base for the course and then part of it you have to BBQ. We started with Grilled Peaches and a goats curd salad which was gorgeous, I’d never thought to BBQ peaches before but it really brings the flavour out and softens them wonderfully. Next up was an heirloom tomato salad with grilled asparagus and from there we went onto the meat; some gorgeous beef fillet and chicken wings, all marinaded perfectly and served with salads to accompany.
To finish things off you get two puddings, yes, two puddings! HEAVEN!! Coconut panacotta with grilled pineapple and then smores, they remove the grill plates so you can toast the marshmallows directly over the coals.
It’s a set menu costing £38 per person, for this you get 6 courses + canapés. They had a secret seafood course when we were there which was an extra £4 a head, well worth it though, it was delicious. For drinks you can Bring Your Own but they also have a cute cocktail honesty bar, they’re prepared in pitchers. And they also had wine and beer available to purchase so you needn’t worry if you don’t have anything when you get there.
There’s something really fun about having a BBQ where you don’t need to worry about setting up the garden or clearing up, it’s super tasty and because you grill parts of it yourself you really get the flavours. The Big Green Egg is wonderful too, it gives everything such a great charcoal taste. And all in a totally gorgeous garden with fairy lights and lanterns!
BBQ Club has just started and runs from Wednesday to Sunday through to the end of August. Tickets are in very high demand so click here to book.
