LONDON | Kricket Brixton is a tiny restaurant housed inside a shipping container at community art, culture, food and drink hub Pop Brixton. Two communal benches line the middle and the kitchen is squeezed into the back. Since opening in August 2015, it’s found itself on many a list of people’s favourite new restaurants in London.

The menu is a simple and short two page affair, with a focus on small British-Indian share plates and quality drinks. Chef Will Bowlby (ex The Cinnamon Club) isn’t out for authenticity here, although great respect is shown to the seasonal, quality ingredients and cooking traditions that make up each dish whether those influences are Indian or British. The result of all of this, is food that tastes fantastic.

The tender, buttermilk soaked Keralan Fried Chicken is coated in a deliciously light, spicy and crispy batter and served with curry leaves, pickled mooli (daikon) and curry aioli. Another highlight, the Hyderabad Baby Aubergine, is smoked and served with a coconut & curry leaf sauce. Flavorsome and sublime.

Cocktails have an Indian influence too them and are designed to match the food – a bit of cardamom here, a touch of tumeric there. The local craft beer and handful of imported European wines have also been selected to go well with the food.

All in all, Kricket ticks all of the right boxes. The space is unique, the service is friendly and the food interesting. A larger Kricket will be opening in Soho soon and if the original is any indication of what to expect, we can’t wait.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
