I live within walking distance of Brixton Village. There’s really no excuse why I’d not explored it before, but now the foodie in me is very, very happy.
First up – Franco Manca for sourdough pizza and lemonade. There’s reviews proclaiming it as the “best pizza in Britain”. And Giulia (an Italian!) raved about it on her blog, so I knew it had to be good. Okay I’m no pizza expert, but it was bloomin’ tasty. I can safely say that, yes, it was the best pizza I have had in this country.
Yesterday, I hit up the Village again. This time, we opted for Honest Burgers, which also had extremely high expectations to live up to. I’ll cut to the chase and say this: they did not disappoint. My cheese burger was full of flavour, with perfectly-done and tender beef. But the real winner was the triple-cooked rosemary salted chips. My mouth is actually watering right now at the mere thought of them.
Phew – I need a second here to recover from re-living that meal. To top the experience off, we finished at Lab G for dessert. I had pistachio and salted caramel gelato. The latter was to die for.
I only brought one lens – the 50mm – which I didn’t feel I could use to convey the atmosphere of the Village. Instead, I used my Vivitar trashcam. Will have to post those after I finish that roll of film!
