Asmara and Adulis for Eritrean in Brixton?
Has anyone eaten here? I noticed both places last week when I decided to criss cross Brixton. I would also be interested in other African suggestions and anyone's opinion on the small Ghanan place inside Brixton Village which offers soups and stews.
No but I can recommend an Eritrean/Sudanese restaurant up in Green Lanes Haringey called Munas.
The charming owner (Muna) will guide you through the menu and then go on to explain the provenance of every artifact on the walls. It became, for me, more of an educational experience than a meal.
loobcom, thanks for the Muna's recommendation. Went there on Sunday evening and rather liked it. We chose the meze option (£18/head), which let us sample various dishes from the menu, served on injera. I took some photos of the food, the interior, and the ceremonial coffee we finished up with; they're on Flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/se...
(I added a longer writeup to our website; it's linked from the Flickr set.)

The Eritrean cleaning lady in my hall actually recced Muna's to me. I'll need to get up there. She also gave me a list of the stores she shops at. I'm going to try either Asmara or Adulis in the near future. I'm in Brixton every single Saturday so I might as well. I love Brixton so much. Why?
I live in Brixton/Herne Hill but have never eated in Asmara (bad). Lots of my friends really rate it though. Bahn Thai (across the road) used to be alright, but the last meal I had there was terrible.
There's a great new Portuguese place that opened recently near the park (on Tulse Hill). It's pretty cheap and cheerful. It's called Brazas, if you're interested.
I also like Khan's (also near the park), but it's just a better-than-average curry house so I don't know whether it would impress you!
The Phoenix, on Coldharbour Lane, does a mean fry-up, and the Prince Regent, on Dulwich Road, is a gastropub with decent food. It has a cheap deal on a Monday night.
