After a week of voting we come to the next part of our vote – the top 5!
Most of these have been Brixton staples for years, aside from Kricket which re emerged in the old Brindisa site a few months ago.
As we hit out 8th (yikes!) birthday we yet again come to our ‘Best Restaurant in Brixton’ vote. Past winners include Nanban, Mama Dough and Donostia Social Club (RIP). The list below is composed of everywhere we have reviewed so apologies if we haven’t mentioned every single place in Brixton.
From going through the places we have reviewed it’s clear that over the past year quite a few of our favourites have closed or flown the nest for bigger residence. Fujiyama, Bukowsi, Cabana, Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen and the previously mentioned Donostia Social Club have all now closed their doors in Brixton. What this means for the next flock of eateries in the area we will have to wait and see, but with the opening of giants such as Sports Direct on Pope’s Road and the redevelopment of the arches we may see fewer independent restaurant and more big buck shops in their places.
It’s that time again. We are now 7 years old (7?! jeeez). The landscape of food in Brixton has changed since our early beginnings and now it is one of the ultimate foodie destinations in London.
As is tradition, we will be conducting our annual restaurant of the year award. Previous winners include, Donostia Social Club, Nanban and Boqueria – so will any of the newcomers beat them to the crown this year?
This is the long list of places to choose from. The vote will be open for a week, when we will take the top 5 into the shortlist vote. We have only included places we have reviewed, restaurants you can sit down at and none of the ‘bus ride away’ or the pop-ups. Apologies in advance if we have forgotten your fave.
Choosing a favourite restaurant is really tough with so many choices and our readers thought so too. It was really close in our first endless list of restaurants so we produced a final shortlist based on your choices. Here it was neck and neck between Yum-D, Cornercopia, Shrub and Shutter and the Donostia Social Club.
But we didn’t need to have any second preferences at the final. We had a Jeremy Corbyn-style victory with an overwhelming 64% to ………… Donostia Social Club … well done. We’ll be round with the certificate. Keep up the high standards for the next year and we are sure you will be seeing us again soon.
