The menu will be based on what Turnip has in at the time (excellent, high-quality veg) and there
With Mei Mei in Borough Market back up and running (alongside a new delivery venture), Elizabeth Haigh is launching her next big thing. Harking back to her Kaizen House pop-up, she's launching Bā, a new twice-weekly dinner at Mei Mei.
She'll lead the supper club/chef's table experience, for 16 people across 16 counter seats (and a couple of extra tables). Bā is Chinese for the lucky number

The chef and his son were nearly killed in a hit and run accident a year ago in Cornwall and it's taken him until now to get fit enough to cook again.

Right folks, get your diaries out. There's a new supperclub series in town and you are going to want to know about it. It's curated by food journalist and street food blogger Victoria Stewart and is called Great British Flavours of East London.
