The Sweet Restaurant

Last night I had the privilege of dining at a really special pop-up eatery called The Sweet Restaurant.

A one-off event held at the Underground Youth Centre at Piper Close, the fund-raising dinner was prepared by the enterprising and creative Underground Girls Group – made up of girls aged 8-19 from the community.

For £10, guests were treated to a set dinner menu of home-made favourites like bread with humus, beef lasagne, pizza and chocolate brownies with Channel Island cream – all cooked and served by the very charming chefs and waitresses who were known by their initials for the night.

The meal was simple, familiar and lovely. Prior to the event the girls had visited Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen, where they learnt about the different roles in a restaurant setting, what it’s like working in catering and had a chance to interact with the restaurant’s young apprentices. They also underwent food hygiene training to ensure everything was prepared safely.

There were also performances and on-site entertainment – we even had a cheeky waitress going around telling jokes to guests. (Q: What ice cream flavour do monkeys love? A: Mint chocolate chimp!).

Overall, a sweet experience as the restaurant name suggests and a worthwhile initiative. I understand there may be more similar pop-up nights coming up, and I look forward to the next round.
