I first heard about Wok+Wine from friends in San Francisco. I’ve been waiting for a year for them to hit up London again, and am ecstatic they finally did. The concept is brilliant – 40 strangers sharing 40lbs of jumbo prawns and 40 bottles of wine. What’s not to love?
It was slightly tortuous having to wait for the prawns to cool down. I can assure you, the smell from the wok and the table was heavenly. Peter gave us a demonstration of how to eat prawns correctly: Rip. Lick. Bite. Suck.
Wok+Wine take the time to scope out the most inspiring places. In the past, they’ve used everywhere from an abandoned library in Auckland to a hair salon in Vancouver. Tonight was hosted in The Hub Islington. The Hub is such an incredible co-working space. My accountancy college is literally across the street… how did I not know this place existed? I wish I worked from home, just so I could come work here!
Great crowd, great food, and some delicious limoncello to end a great night.
