Where to strEAT on a Saturday night?
Where does the adventurous foodie go to eat al fresco on a Saturday night? Here are our top picks from around the city…
South: Brixton Village
This late-night covered market has more than a dozen options for hungry stall-stalkers – from burgers to burritos with cheap margaritas. It even got a thumbs up from The Guardian’s own Jay Rayner. Several places are BYO, so bring a bottle and save some pennies. Open 8am till midnight Thursday-Saturday.
Granville Arcade, Brixton, SW9 8PR
East: Netil Market
If you’re suffering from the post-lunch blues and can’t wait till late to get your street food fix, try Netil Market. Featuring the decadent (lobster from fin and flounder) to the gut-busting (Lucky Chip burgers), Netil Market is a little explored gem, and well worth the journey off the beaten track. Open till 6pm every Saturday. We wish it were open longer *sigh*.
11-25 Westgate Street, Hackney, E8 3RL
Central: Real Food Market
If your cultural exploits have left you peckish, head to this weekly market near the Southbank centre. Open every Saturday until 8pm, this market boasts arancini (that’s risotto balls to you and me), mac ‘n’ cheese, churros, and a whole lot in between. We’ll let you discover the rest for yourself…
Belvedere Road (behind Royal Festival Hall), Lambeth, SE1 8XX
East: The Dead Dolls Club
If that brisk winter air feels like too much to bear, then perhaps a pop-up restaurant could be more suitable (and less draughty)… The Dead Dolls Club is open for business, with a short but sweet menu of stews and cocktails. Open from 2pm-3am on Saturdays in November for revelry. Follow their high jinx on Twitter: @deaddollsclub
428 Kingsland Road, Dalston, E8 4AA
