Different London indeed. Brixton has been intensely influenced by Caribbean, African, West Indian and Asian cultures. This multicultural blend resulted in a plethora of independent bars and restaurants, while its transport links make it perfect for those on business trips keen to explore local life in the capital.
Why we love Brixton
London’s best pop-up food restaurants
London’s street-food markets are in full swing, with regular appearances every weekend across the city. Traditionally the haunt of independent chefs, increasingly they are incorporating more established restaurants, but this doesn’t detract from the sizzling array of cuisines on offer.
Vegetarian and vegan restaurants in the capital
Pop-up restaurants, bottomless brunches, all-night dining: there’s always a new food trend finding its feet in London. There is, however, one that has long been a feature of the high street: vegetarian cuisine. From smoothie bars to brownies the capital has no shortage of alternatives to a meaty meal.
