We met up with another friend of mine while I was in London last week and the three of us hit up Camden market for some deliciously ethnic treats.
We didn’t eat here either but I looked at the grill and thought “wow that puppy is clean!”. Not sure if that was a good or bad thing, but they seemed to be getting some business so I guess it wasn’t that bad.
We’ve thoroughly discussed my
obsession deep enjoyment of arepas many times here already. This stand was PACKED full of people clamoring to get food and after having a bite of my friend Louise’s I could definitely understand/taste why. Soft white corn center surrounded by a crunchy, toasty white corn outer crust. Louise had her arepa filled with perfectly cooked chicken, slightly sweet and slightly spicy red sauce and creamy white Venezuelan cheese. When I took a bite of her arepa, I squealed like a suckling pig , then I just about died. Yes, right in the middle of Camden Market (I’m all about the modesty, you know)! If you see this place in Camden Market or anywhere on planet earth for that matter, be sure to grab an arepa (or maybe two if you are feeling a little greedy).
Whoa-this was the motherload. One thing I seriously miss living in Norway is having black-eyed peas on a more regular basis. I ate here because they had black-eyed peas prepared in a red sauce, curried goat (this will definitely be one of my last meal options if I ever end up on death row) and fried plantain.
I got the small mixed box + plantain for 6,50 which gave me a chance to sample curry goat, veggie curry, black eye-peas vegetable stew and a smidgen of chicken curry. Hot sauce and salad were free and on the side.
