Camden at the weekend is like every embarrassing adolescent moment you’ve ever had, rolled into a few hundred metres of tattoo parlour, goth store, and vape cafe. Skip the Stables Market and wander over to KERB which, while still completely bumrushed at the weekend, has far better eating options. Of these, the fried chicken and burritos from Mother Clucker and Luardos still do it for us, and the mac ‘n’ cheese from the Mac Factory. There’s a lot of instahyped stuff too - you can safely avoid the halloumi fries and vegan tacos, and don’t even bother with the cheese wheel.

Namaaste is a solid Indian restaurant in Camden, with a slight 90s feel, but some properly good standout dishes.
There are a few Mildreds dotted around town, and the Camden outlet for their vegetarian dishes is as solid and enjoyable as the rest.
Chin Chin Laboratories
Chin Chin Laboratories in Camden make their ice cream with nitrogen and science. We don’t really understand it, but we do know that it’s excellent.

Giant Robot is a street food/bar venue in Canary Wharf, from the same people behind Dinerama. It’s great for post-work drinks and something to eat.
PJ’s Bar & Grill
PJ’s is an old-school, polo themed restaurant in South Ken serving brasserie style food and an excellent full English all day.
Chik’n is an upmarket chicken shop on Baker Street and feels like a cross between a Shake Shack and KFC. Great for quick snack if you’re in the hood.
