    Streatham has its first vegan restaurant (well, takeaway to be more precise). It's at 3A Mitcham Lane, just off the High Road opposite St Leonard's church. Opened a couple of weeks ago.

    This news is so hot that their website hasn't been updated yet but you can download a menu at: Vegan Express – Your choice for health

    That's where I'll be going if I'm too lazy or pissed to cook for myself.

    EDIT: Looks a bit pricey though.

    Any ideas of good places to eat in Streatham
    about 4.30 on a week day? Last time we tried Adomme we weren’t impressed ?!

    If you want to stay Italian then Bravi Ragazzi or Italian Bistro (formerly Azzurri). Perfect Blend has good burgers. The new Chalkpit place is good but not the cheapest, but be aware that the food comes in 2/3 portion sizes (as does the beer), so order accordingly. I was disappointed by Bar 61.

    :facepalm:

    Im guessing the food and beer doesn't come in at 2/3 price though

    This place has changed hands a few times IIRC. Not been down there for a couple of years.

    They do / did a great Sunday lunch down there a few years back...very pricey...mind you it was great quality, non of that heat up the microwave type affair...it was freshly done, well it was on the two occasions I had it.

    A bit of a Hipster haven....decent-ish Pizza's though.

    Video on twitter just now of a flipped car blocking southbound lane of the High Street, by Edith Cavill Surgery. Not sure if anyone hurt

    The traffic update says no one was hurt. And that it was a two-vehicle incident. Pretty spectacular damage. The road people were out repairing the road behind the upturned vehicle, and part of the central reservation is demolished. No idea what happened but I find it hard to imagine flipping a big heavy BMW 4x4 at 30mph.

    At the Chalkpit. Seems ok and about 40% full.

    Beer is ok but as said elsewhere, pricey

    Nanker Phelge Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

    It's alright. Food portions are small for the price, but tasty. It is expensive.

    One member of staff was a bit of pompous prat, but the rest were good.

    Streatham Twitter is following an incident in the JD Sport by CEX/opposite the Odeon. All rumours so far but someone has mentioned acid attack. No confirmation but someone said the manager had something thrown in his face by someone caught stealing

    Apparently 2-3 fire engines, several ambulances and loads of police cars of varying types

    Anyone heard any more about this?
    Just saw another suspected acid attack just now in Wimbledon somewhere
