I love Brixton village It makes Shoreditch look as dated as the slinky toy. It’s a maze of quirky shops, bars, denim jackets and chicken. I went along for Sunday dinner with the flat buddies, Parklike failed to join after one of his infamous nights out.
We wondered around for a bit but then decided on Brixton Grill- straight forward, fresh. meat, fish, veg, chips simple.
But before we get into the food let’s get down to business: the bloody mary…
Sweat test: 9 – hot enough, obviously Brixton can do spice.
Garnishes: 6 lovely bit of fresh celery and a lemon. could have done with something else.
Glass: 7 good size and shape nothing wild.
Taste: 8 love the pepper in it, well balanced.
Overall: 7 Good quality, perhaps more excitement but great.
So time for food-
I had grilled Sardines, tasted fresh salty-All the things you would expect from a sardine.
Grilled Chicken and veg for main
They were selling some lovely pink grape juice…
Then we shared this chilli ice cream. Only in Brixton can they make ice cream spicy..It was pretty delicious
If some clever chef can make me a bloody mary ice cream, please tell me. Cheers.
Now I can’t leave Brixton Village without going to my favourite cocktail bar at the moment, Seven.
Full of character, generally everyone is young with an average of 8 in looks. The cocktails are so much fun creative and coming in around £5-£7 each. We of course tried every one on the menu..
Their ginger beer, basil mojito is probably one of the best mojito I have ever had and now they are serving a rhubarb one that will keep me happy all summer.
This was my top drink of the evening though- Cucumber and Rosemary Gimlet. A Boxer gin based cocktail, always love to see gin cocktails and this one was super refreshing and the cucumber/rosemary twist was beautiful.
Another session in Brixton complete – ( though we probably shouldn’t have done it on a school night. )
