Street Food at Pop Brixton

Food  / 

Pop Brixton is home to street food mini diners, vintage fashion stores and more to come over summer. We took a look, and here are our highlights so far…

What we loved

Pop Brixton has a great vibe to it: with a DJ in the corner and art all over the walls, film screenings and projects planned for the future, there’s plenty to enjoy over summer. We love the fact this gives many of the street food traders the chance to make the step up to a smaller home – an in between the street stall and restaurant.

For a hint of spice

Kricket was a welcome addition to the palette. The Bhel Puri was a hint to street food in India, while our lamb chops with smoked paprika raita were moreish. Beautiful yet simple presentation won us over. Alternatively head to Baba G’s who do a stonking good burger.

For the meat heads

Miss P’s Barbeque do a great selection of meats in buns and the sauces are top notch complements to the meats.

For an intimate taste of Summer 

Head to Donostia Social Club, where you can immerse yourself in Spanish dining, tapas and pintxos. We loved the small pintxos, perfect for a lighter bite before tucking into the hake dish… That was a beauty!

For traditional with a twist

Head to Hook for fish and chips. There’s a classic panko crumbed cod, or for the adventurous the Cuban Panko Hake is delicious to share. All meals are served with twice cooked seaweed salted chips! Delicious!

Perfect for a date

You can’t go wrong with sharing a pizza, especially if it’s with a date. Made of Dough do four to choose from, fired up in their wood fired oven.

Summer nights… Need dollops of ice cream

And not just any ice cream. Yumitub, inspired by Thai ice cream street stalls, prepare their milk and cream mixture on a cold, (extremely cold) plate in front of you, giving you the option of a vanilla or chocolate base and the choice of chocolate or fruit to add. Or go for both!

On the hunt for a present or last minute outfit?

Check out Queen of the Harpies for bright prints, from tops to dresses, and accessories to go. Or if you prefer vintage clothing there’s Make Do and Mend where visitors can sign up for sewing classes too!

Pop fashion

There’s much more

Food fans can welcome in authentic Ghanaian food from Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen in their first permanent residency, Japanese noodles from Koi Ramen Bar, and sip from the Japanese tea house Kyonocha. Here’s the other traders visitors can expect to indulge in:

Mexican – Maria Sabina; Vietnamese from Vietbox; pub style food – World of Wurst; and Caribbean – Mama’s Jerk.

Pop Brixton will also be home to initiatives that will drive skill sharing and community relationships between tenants and local residents through a training space. The Pop Farm is a garden and greenhouse area, whilst visitors can engage in local artist exhibitions, workshops, TEDx talks, gigs and cinema screenings in Pop Brixton’s 200 capacity event space.
