If you're a bit of a foodie then you'll love this new way of dining in London. Grub Crawl is a start-up that takes food lovers on a tour along several restaurants in one night. Kind of like a pub crawl, but with food. Obviously.
Last week I joined Hannah on one of her Grub Crawls in Brixton Village. Brixton Village has turned into quite the foodie destination over recent years, after the arcades here were taken over by independent and ethnic restaurants and pop-ups. The perfect place for a foodie version of a pub crawl.
We started our tour at Champagne and Fromage where I was joined by some fellow foodie (and very hungry) bloggers. We were welcomed with a glass of champagne, a generous meat sharing platter and a cheeseboard. The meat board was draped with a selection of hams and salamis from different regions in France. My favourites were the blueberry salami and the cured ham. Among the artisanal cheeses there was a goat’s cheese, a Camembert and morsels of blue cheese.
Next up was French and Grace, a restaurant serving Middle Eastern style food. I whet my appetite with one of their exotic cocktails; a Prosecco and pomegranate concoction. The food here was pretty copious as well.
