Oops no excuse not to get take outs then.
Nape (the charcuterie and wine place) has closed. I'm ambivalent.
Wanted to give a wholly positive mention to "Falafel & Shawarma" on Camberwell Church St - one of those little places with about 5 things on the menu, all tip top. The veggie options are so good that I rarely have the sole meat option (chicken - despite that extremely tasty too). Prices are beyond decent - £3.50 for a Falafel wrap, £4.50 for a mixed mezze plate (a superb selection of vegetarian Lebanese), same price for a chicken shawarma plate, plus £1.50 for 4 sambusak (samosa, veg or meat options), plus they do fresh carrot and ginger juice, mint tea etc.... amazing value all round, really
Very sweet staff, might well be family run, can't find a single negative personally... I'm regularly taking a detour there for my dinner or lunch!
I'm also a fan of that place.
Wrap wars on that stretch of Camberwell Church Street keep things cheap. Though I haven't tried the competitors. The outpost of the felafel folk which is in the doomed location on Datchelor Place hasn't been open since August.
Ugh. Thank fuck this guy is locked up.
I mean, also glad he's locked up, but bit of a weird addition this thread
The Grove pub reopened yesterday. Haven't had a drink/food but popped in and looks nice - definitely better than the Grand Union days.
Yeah, thanks Ed. Bummer
In other news, I'm not that keen on the Grove refurb. Much less cosy, too many hard surfaces and crap sounding sandwiches. Hope it settles down to being a local not directly aimed at a post-work crowd.
Also, why has this appeared in Love Walk?
eta I mean the non-adjustable telescope pointed at St Giles, not the fella.
Launch of Camberwell Art Trail - CoolTan Arts
Ludicrously detailed information about the UK’s oldest bin store (probably) and 'definitely not the church porch' on Benhill Road
There's loads more. Read it here
Looks like that was a month ago.
Whoever is running that place into the ground these days seems utterly shady. Currently the focus of legal challenges, so I hear.
There's another telescope at the end of Wren Road near Morrisons. Had a look through it but there isn't really much of a vista!
Another Arty thingy? I miss the pink parking meter Arty thingy.
