    The Phoenix sold it and moved to a new place then sold that.

    They also built a new block of flats

    They are not coming back

    It was very overrated for the food but I loved the original as a proper caff.

    Fancy Funkin Chicken was ok, or at least the food was. Seemed to be popular with everyone (a more mixed crowd than a lot of restaurants in the centre)

    It was an independent cafe that was hugely popular with locals of all backgrounds and very affordable. I can see why that might not be your thing.

    I went past the vegan Pipoca place on Brixton Road and it looks so much better than the awful photo they've been using. The menu looked tasty too so I'll give it a go soon and do some better photos for them.

    Was usually half full when I went there. What I meant was it seemed to attract black and white patrons in similar numbers

    Blimey, the Beehive is busy in the afternoons. Shame about the Brexit propaganda stuck on every table, mind.

    I'm back in Brixton for the weekend and went to Pipoca for an enormous and very tasty breakfast, Pipoca Brunch -- home made baked beans, roasted veg, avocado dip and sour dough bread with garlic butter. Coffee wasn't good though. Definitely worth a visit though. They also have a 'packaging free' shop next door, which I feel is a bit gimmicky at the moment, but it has to start somewhere.

    Anyway, I came here to ask for a recommendation for a tasty old school Chinese in the vicinity. I have spent too long in the land of tourist food (fish & chips, burger and chips, cheesey chips or just chips) and I need something with a bit of zing.
