JUMA’s first encounter with the foodies of London was through his renound, London pop-up. In 2012, JUMA launched their first Iraqi supperclub in a small independent cafe in South west London. What started as a test, to see how people would react to Iraqi food in London, turned into an overwhelming response, which has now turned into consistent, sell-out supperclubs, all over London. Pop-up venues include Aston and Magill, Dance Attic studios, Bens Canteen, as most recently The Jam Tree, Clapham. The London diners have spoken and it is clear that Iraqi cuisine is here to stay and in high demand!
