GET VOTING IN TIME OUT’S LOVE LONDON AWARDS!
We know you love food and if 2016 has taught us anything, it’s that using your power to vote is very, very important. So when your favourite Camden Market foodies need you to vouch for them in Time Out’s Love London Awards, you know what to do. It’s your one chance to show your dearest London spots just how much you LOVE them.
Loads of our bars, restaurants, cafes and street food pioneers, old and new, are in the running including, Baba G’s, Burger & Beyond, Chin Chin Labs, Ghetto Grillz, Gilgamesh, Honest Burgers, Mother Clucker, Oli Baba’s, Lockside Lounge, Cafe Loren and many, many more.
All you need to do is find the places you love and click ‘nominate’ – you can vote for as many as you like right here. Here’s a taster.
Fake cheese and Doritos? Not at this Mexican cantina – it’s the real deal. The tortilla chips are homemade and the guac fresher than a pillow with a mint on it. Laid back and authentic, Cafe Chula promises to ‘soothe the souls of Londoners one taco and margarita at a time’. But the likelihood is you’ll have several of both.
Perfectly battered and served with a generous portion of nostalgia – this retro kiosk is everything you’d expect from a chippie and more. The founder, Pops, knows a thing or two about fish – he started out in the trade 1952 when, aged 11, he got a job cutting up copies of The Daily Mirror to wrap dinner in.
Two words: halloumi fries. Oli Baba caused a foodie riot when they launched their deep fried cheese strips in 2015 and since they’ve continued to impress hungry punters everywhere. Meat-free Levantine cuisine is Oli’s focus – the founders were converted to the culinary delights of the Middle East during a six month long trip to the region and their crowd-drawing street food van is the legacy of that experience. The menu boasts authentic fattoush (flatbread salad) and toasted pita sandwiches.
Starting off a street food stall in the West Yard, these guys are now so popular, they’ve got an eat-in diner here too. Cooking up all the best things in life and then adding an extra layer of cheese on top, Ghetto Grillz offers a selection of gooey grilled sandwiches, juicy burgers, breakfast bagels and wraps. The salt beef Reuben is the main event, a New York favourite in a squishy Brick Lane bagel.
