Manjits Kitchen have been doing home delivery on a Friday and Saturday evening in Leeds for just over a year. As we dont live in Leeds we hadn’t been able to sample the food but we’d heard lots about it on twitter.
We were lucky enough to get a space at the first #mksupperclub held at HEART cafe in Headingley. Manjit and Michael had convinced the HEART cafe to let them use their space on the evening they were closed and what a great venue it turned out to be.
It was my first experience of a supper club and I wasn’t really too sure what to expect.
We arrived and were welcomed in by Michael and offered a lassi (no picture of this I’m afraid). There were two tables of 10 and each table setting had a place card (the picture on the left).

We had received a copy of the menu a week before and I was really looking forward to it. I’m not vegetarian and I do enjoy meat but when you have Indian food cooked well, you really dont miss meat.

My favourite was the chana daal. But the corn and pomegranate was so refreshing and fresh tasting.

I had a really good evening. We chatted with the people next to us and made new twitter friends. Although we were strangers we did have twitter and a love of food in common so the evening was fun.
Manjit is an excellent cook and I’d recommend you try her food where you can, and I understand she’ll be on the streets peddling her wares on the streets from next month so keep an eye out!
