The original Rosa’s Thai Cafe opened in east London around ten years ago. Over time a few more branches opened and in March last year we went along to the opening night of Rosas Thai Cafe in Brixton.

Fancy Funkin Chicken – Brixton

The Shrub and Shutter – Brixton

With the high street and central areas of Brixton becoming increasingly off limits to independent businesses because of rent hikes and high business rates, sole traders have to look for premises in ‘secondary’ areas that may initially be less appealing. It’s interesting to speculate what Brixton may look like in five or ten years time; […]

Last week I went to Wahaca in Brixton, one of the most recent locations this chain has opened.  Wahaca, which was started by previous Masterchef winner Tommi Mires in 2007, is a Mexican street food restaurant which has expanded succesfully from […]
