Where we've featured it
It feels silly to call Mare Street off the beaten track, but in comparison to the perma-London Fields festival, it can feel that way. It’s where you’ll find Caribbean Kitchen and their too-good-to-turn-down lunch deals. Back in the day, when fresh air was breathed, and items were handled willy-nilly, there was something called ‘Ye Olde Mealus Dealus’. It was sad, it was more often inhaled than chewed, and Caribbean Kitchen puts it to shame. Their chicken stew with rice and peas is a generous and chilli-warming lunch for one. The same goes for their vegan sweet potato and black bean offering. Or there’s a jerk chicken wrap if you’re looking for something for handheld, all for in and around a fiver.
Or, L’eau à La Bouche is a - how do you say? - _très charmante deli that does a mean croque monsieur or raclette toastie, perfect for a midweek pick-me-up._
