Wander around Camden Lock Market and Stables Market to xperience an array of different street foods to sample! Ranging from Vietnamese and Chinese to Mexican, Vegetarian and burgers, there is something for everyone. Great way to have a cheap lunch (can be anything from £3-8) and sit by the Lock and people watch.
Places I have been to are:
Hummus Lina (see separate page)
Nojo – a crepe stall located in the Stables Market in Camden. They offer both savoury and sweet crepes with choices such as chicken teriyaki, smoked salmon, ‘veggie’ or matcha strawberry. The crepes are made to order and are jam-packed with fillings. The staff are helpful and friendly, advising carefully on dietary restrictions. The crepes are ‘guilt-free’ because they are gluten free, don’t contain refined sugar; only honey or maple syrup and there are many vegan options.
Magic Falafel – a food stall based in the Stables Market in Camden serving up fresh and tasty falafel. Their falafel is homemade and cooked fresh to order with the option of either a pita, box or plate. The whole menu is vegan and you can munch on some fried pita with dip as you are waiting for your food to be made.
The stall’s chef was very fun and wanted to make sure we had a unique pasta dish each. Whilst we were waiting for him to cook we tried a slice of margherita pizza which was awesome. The chef cooked us up two portions of penne pasta; one with a creamy carbonara sauce (and a little tomato) and chicken and bacon, the other with mixed veggies, tomato sauce and pesto sauce. Both pastas were served with focaccia bread and were very yummy…however a bit too oily for my personal preference. Perhaps if you’re also not an oil fan mention to the chef so that he doesn’t add too much! I’m sure he’d be happy to accommodate given they are all freshly made!
For the pasta you can chose a base of penne or spaghetti and add various sauces ranging from Carbonara to Pesto – all pastas cost £7. Large pizza slices range from £3 for margherita to £3.50 for veggie or meaty pizzas. You can also create your own pizza or calzones from a selection of ingredients. At Tomatello you can also build your own salad for £6.50 from a counter full of fresh ingredients- restocked freshly each day. The portions are big for the price you pay making it good value for money.
