Vegan stroll in Brixton Market, south London

Welcome to Brixton. the home of David Bowie used to be a rough neighborhood back in the day, but it’s now it’s one of London’s nicest cheap eats destinations. “Brixton Village” is a covered area at the market with a lot of design stores, some authentic groceries and tons of lovely cafes and cute places to eat or just sit and relax. It’s very colorful and lively space- and it’s all in a Caribbean atmosphere…

In order to get there – just hop on the Victoria line and wait until the last stop.

and now for the food…

On my first visit, my  husband and I had a delicious lunch at Senzala – it’s a “Creperie” and cafe, and they have a decent vegan section in their menu. we had 2 savory crepes – one  is “Dujhan” – with garlic mushrooms, caramelized onions, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, rocket and spinach drizzled with Maple & Mustard dressing. the second was with a lot of mushrooms and courgettes and was just as good.

Guaraná —that drink that everyone who was in Brazil know…

My second trip to Brixton was with my friend Daria (who is an awesome photographer, that’s why her food pic is much better) and we sat to eat at Mama Lan – a tiny Chinese street food restaurant (literately. tiny. be prepared to stand in line and wait for a table). We has spicy noodle with tofu – heaven.

And another advice  – bring enough cash with you, because most of the places accept cash only.
