Valderrama's

163 Upper Street, London
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The laid-back and colourful football-inspired bar on Upper Street is named after Carlos Valderrama, Colombia’s legendary blonde afroed midfielder, but there’s just as much here for casual fans as there is for die hard ones. Juicy buttermilk chicken thighs, gravy mayo, and stacked hash browns all feature on the menu, as well as some loaded doughnuts. There are a couple of big screens in each corner and just know that if it all goes wrong, you can drown your sorrows with frozen margaritas.
