It’s great to discover new places in your hometown. Especially when it’s the kind of place that you can’t wait to go to again! Brixton Village is a small part of Brixton Market that has delicious, small, homely restaurants and cafés with short menus, and tables outside. We wandered around eyeing up people’s food and browsing through menus. There is so much choice.
Colombian and French restaurants caught my eye before we settled on Mama Lan, excited at the thought of dumplings. We shared king prawn and Chinese water chestnut dumplings; woodear mushroom, spinach and vermicelli dumplings and fried vegetable balls served with sweet chilli sauce. They were all deliciously fresh and came out steaming and ready to be dipped into soy sauce.
