A savoury egg custard with a rich umami taste that comes from a blend of dashi, mirin & light soy sauce.
We've added prawns, kamaboko & shiitake mushrooms and the result is a little dish that will give you as many different emotions as it has distinct flavours, like a short dream that lasts for the time you take to eat it (do it slowly please).
Try it in Japan or come to Monograph.

Reach our secret location in Shoreditch, sit at the same table with some perfect strangers and be ready for new flavours, thoughts and conversations in an informal and relaxed environment.

Food fine but a disappointing experience

Rating: 5

jbimrosebrown attended in November 2014, reviewed on 16 November 2014

Having eaten at one amazing supper club, we were excited about sharing this one with a friend for her birthday.

The food was interesting and well presented but overall the experience was a disappointment. They held the supper club in a small cafe and we were extremely packed in, with additional guests squeezed onto the end of the table even once all the chairs were full.

It would have been nice to have heard a bit more about the food and felt less like they were trying to make as much money as possible by having so many people there.

A stark contrast to the warm and intimate reception we had received from previous hosts.

Monograph responded on 1 December 2014:


Sorry for our delay in reply and thank you for your review.
We are always happy to receive comments, either positive or negative, as there is always a chance to improve and learn from them.
We are, of course, sorry to hear about your disappointment.
We do agree that the current venue is quite small. The popularity of our supper club has grown incredibly fast and we are still in the process of searching for a bigger venue.
The primary reason behind the choice of having a large number of guests is to keep the ticket price low.
We could easily reduce the number of guests and raise the ticket price, like even suggested by some of the previous guests, and it would still appear a reasonable price for a Japanese dinner, considering the high prices of the imported Japanese ingredients.
But we personally believe that dining experiences should be affordable and not a luxury, and we like to see our ideal guest as passionate and sensitive rather then wealthy.

We also agree that we should give more information about the dishes.
Due to the choice of sometimes complex preparations and due to the limits of the kitchen, we are always extremely busy from start to finish and hardly manage to talk to guests.
We are thinking about printing informative cards to give with each course; We have no idea if it is going to work or not but we may give it a try soon.

Please do feel free to contact us at if you would like to give us a second chance and we'll send you a special invitation when we are confident to have solved the issues reported.

Thank you,

Kind regards.
