Brixton Village Market has fast become one of the most renowned places for eating great, diverse food in London. With a wide range of cuisines tucked into one small area, it really is the best place to fill your tummy of an evening. But with so many dishes to choose from, it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge!
Always busy. Always. But don’t let that put you off. The staffs are accommodating, efficient and friendly, and the food is absolutely yum. A small but vibrant menu is on offer complemented by a small but refined wine and ale list.
Another busy eatery, KaoSarn serves up homemade Thai grub. Bursting with intense, authentic Thai flavour, the food is cheap, warm and welcoming. Soft drinks are available, including homemade ginger or lemongrass tea, and you can also BYO.
The best thing about eating in Brixton Village is the individual menus of each establishment. They are short, sweet and always taste great. Casa Morita’s menu is no different. The Yucatan pulled pork is to die for as are their adobe refried beans. With stonkingly cheap cocktails, which are delicious, you can’t really go wrong!
With a name that rolls delightfully off the tongue, this little restaurant serves seasonal British dishes with brew from Southwark’s Kernel Brewery. They even offer gorgeous hampers come Christmas time, which comes accompanied by a fact sheet explaining the origins of each item. Gorgeous!
Ideally located with space for performers and bands to play come the weekend, Agile Rabbit is an independent pizzeria and cafe. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with a real buzz about the place…and the calzones are amazing!
French & Grace
Serving up a selection of Mediterranean dishes, mostly salads and wraps, French & Grace is perfectly located opposite Agile Rabbit; you can listen to the bands without having them right on top of you! With only three tables inside, and a handful outside, this tiny eatery is intimate…but their lamb stew is insanely gorgeous!
Part of the ‘Meat Liquor’ chain, this fab little bar-come bistro dishes up fried chicken or burgers with a great menu of traditional American sides; slaw, mac & cheese (deep-fried) and cheese fries. Whilst the service is impersonal, the food is both cheap yummy, the atmosphere is cool and the ’liquor’ menu is fantastic.
