Brixton in southwest London is one of the most multiethnic districts in the city with a chunk of its population coming from Africa or the Caribbean. While it was once regarded as a pretty rundown part of town, Brixton (like New York's Harlem) has been experiencing a recent renaissance that has resulted in a lot of restaurants, galleries, and cafes popping up. That said, Brixton should definitely be on an Trabblr's radar if they're looking for a multicultural experience that revolves awesome food and great shopping.
The main highlights in Brixton are the Brixton Market, the Sunday Farmers' Market, and Brixton Village. We suggest Trabblrs meet for lunch in Brixton Village where there are over 20 quality eateries serving up everything from burgers to Pakistani fare. After you've all eaten, step outside and roam around the markets on Electric Avenue, Pope's Road, and Brixton Station Road, where you can buy anything everyday items and local crafts.
- Bokits (spicy, stuffed pocket sandwiches from Guadaloupe) from Bokit'La at the Food Corner on Brixton Station Rd. Probably the most delicious thing you can get for 7 quid. Note that they're only around on Fridays.
- Honest Burgers at Brixton Village.
- Okan at Brixton Village, which serves street food from Osaka.
