I recently got invited to the launch of Kerb’s new street food venture in Camden Stables, with over 30 stalls serving a variety of cuisines from some of the best street food traders in London.
Admitting this probably makes me ‘basic’, but I’m a sucker for brunch. If it includes avocado and/or poached eggs, I’m sold. To really enforce my basic-ness, I never even liked avocado until it become trendy. All of a sudden it’s great!
I’ve been brunching a lot lately so I thought I’d compile a mini-review of some of the places I visited, so if you’re ever in town and craving breakfast foods at noon, you know where to go!
Although I am firmly a North London gal born and bred (so north, in fact, that you can walk 10 minutes in the wrong direction and find you’re no longer in London), my boyfriend Max lives in South London, which is a horribly long commute but also means I’ve gotten to discover another part of the city. In fact I’ve come to think of the Battersea/Clapham area as a second home of sorts. A second home with more blokes in rugby shirts, yummy mummies pushing strollers, and some rather delectable grub.
It’s been a while since I’ve featured a London hotspot so I thought I’d bring it back with a bang, in the form of not one but two restaurants I’ve been loving recently. In typical student fashion I’ve been finding any excuse to eat out and save myself from another night of frozen pasta. I figure ‘research for the blog’ is a valid reason, right? This post would not be particularly interesting if I was reviewing my home-cooked pot noodles!
This month’s features are Kettner’s, a townhouse in Soho, and Fischer’s, a Viennese restaurant in Marylebone. I’ve lumped these two restaurants together not just because they serve delicious food (though they do, obviously), but because they’re the perfect settings for an amateur sleuth, Agatha Christie style…
