Brixton Flavours Festival
Having already made waves over the past few years as the hottest foodie hub south of the river, Brixton is set to become a culinary Mecca on 26th October as Brixton Flavours takes over the city.
£15 buys corresponding Brixton pounds that are accepted as currency throughout the 20+ bars and restaurants participating in the foodie festival. Stretching over 8 and a half hours of deliciousness, the participating outlets offer both dishes to buy and free taster plate size portions that guarantee you won’t go home hungry.
Brixton Flavours covers an impressive number of eateries in the area, spanning Brixton Village, Market Row, Coldharbour Lane, Atlantic Road and Windrush Sq., and locals and tourists alike can enjoy a wide range of cuisines from around the globe, thanks to headline sponsor OpenTable, the leading online booking service.
We were lucky enough to attend a preview of the festival, and munched our way through a number of dishes from various bars and restaurants. These included Satay cocktail bar (hello, delicious prawn tempura), a quick tasting session from Chix at The Wine Parlour, and delectable dim sum at Courtesan restaurant. Here we also sampled additional cocktails from Kaff bar, maki rolls from Ichiban Sushi, chocolate brownies from Parissi and amazing singing from BiteSize Opera – a seriously refined accompaniment to any dish.
As if we weren’t full enough already, we were then bundled to Brindisa for Spanish Jamon, before heading to Brixton Village for a feeding frenzy at Brixton Village Grill, Julisco, Fish Wings and Tings and various other outlets, before finally finishing at The Ritzy Picture House. Phew!
Other participating outlets include Carioca, Casa Morita, Duck Egg Café, Etta’s seafood, Foccacia, Ichiban, Market House, Lounge Bar, Prince of Wales, Senzala, Snugg and Sponge & Cream.
