Underground night market

We had bags of fun last night at the Underground Night Market, hosted in the home of Secret Supper Club foody goddess Kerstin Rodgers, aka Ms Marmite Lover. It was a gorgeous warm evening and the house and garden were packed with people and all kind of lovely goodies, from sizzling bacon butties to refreshing sorbets.

    @Smurfpop – Yes it's in Kerstin's house and garden!

    @Tass – I loved the Mauritian food! I'm now hunting out Mauritian restaurants in London :)

    I also went to this. I wanted to enjoy it. I didn't.

    Still, your photos look nice. In future, I'll read your blog and look at the pictures, which I will no doubt find less traumatic than going in person.

    I'm half-Mauritian (and used to live there) and am so jealous! Lucky you!

    P.S. Do you think I could get some tips about holding my own Underground Market?

    I've been craving Mauritian food since we honeymooned there last year, so I'll have to track those guys down! I've got terrific memories of buying roti chaud from street vans, as well as ladoo — a kind of sweet doughy ball; so very tasty.

    Sounds like it was a great night!

    It was just too crowded for me! I found it quite overwhelming being around so many people in such a comparatively small space. It felt like there wasn't really sufficient space to properly look around & enjoy it.

    I feel guilty for saying that it wasn't for me, not least because I could see that so much effort went into preparing the night, and so many others were obviously enjoying themselves. Perhaps now that I know what to expect, a second time visit wouldn't be so traumatic.

    Full credit for a unique concept, one that is clearly very successful and well received.

    I think that's fair enough critique Nick, it was busy and a little difficult to move around at times, but I guess that's the payoff for the uniqueness of it being in someone's house.. I thought the atmosphere was really nice though despite the crowdedness, and a good range of things on offer without too horrendous queues.
