Casa Ali ~ is a supper club inspired by all those with whom I have broken bread and shared food as a host or as a guest.
Located, south of the river in London, Casa Ali is just 11 minutes by train from London Bridge + a ten minute walk from Norwood Junction. The exact location is a secret (will be given out via e-mail a week in advance of the meal), it adds a little mystery!
Casa Ali (ali’s home) ~ Love and more love, the idea is not to reproduce a restaurant experience! You can expect food cooked with love, soaked in warm hearty conversations and served in my open plan kitchen / dining room without pretension. You can watch the food being prepared if you so wish. The table cosily sits 8. Costs on average around £35 for a 4 to 5 course meal.
Depending on the season, the menu will be finalised couple weeks in advance. I try to source locally and support small grocers, butchers and fish mongers. In summer, there is more possibility to forage herbs and berries or use organic vegetables from my allotment. Its fun!
Alcohol will not be provided, though on occasion there will be welcome drinks ‘on-the-house’ and filtered water. You can bring your own drinks to enjoy before, during an after your meal. The fridge will be full of food, but we will try our best to keep your drinks chilled.
The cooking comes from my heart as I take inspiration from many cuisines and cultures. My dishes do not have names, they are presented factually with the ingredients. If you wish to give them a name, eventually I would call them so!
To get an idea of the food you may get, browse through the gallery of some veg and non-veg dishes that I have prepared in the past.
Love and more love!
