Camden at the weekend is like every embarrassing adolescent moment you’ve ever had, rolled into a few hundred metres of tattoo parlour, goth store, and vape cafe. Skip the Stables Market and wander over to KERB which, while still completely bumrushed at the weekend, has far better eating options. Of these, the fried chicken and burritos from Mother Clucker and Luardos still do it for us, and the mac ‘n’ cheese from the Mac Factory. There’s a lot of instahyped stuff too - you can safely avoid the halloumi fries and vegan tacos, and don’t even bother with the cheese wheel.
