any recent sightings? i can't make it to waterloo during the week but would love to check it out.
that said, if he's not there, is anything else at the w'end market which is worth a trip?

    I haven't been there for a while but there's an Ethiopian coffee stall and they also sell some food. Usually some sausage places including a German one and an Italian one. Also crepe place and Chinese food. It could have all changed over the summer as the company who is running the market was on the look-out for new vendors and was offering very cheap rates for pitches. Pretty sure Arturo at Buen Provecho has a Facebook page which you could check out.

      Was told my his assistant, at Waterloo, that Arturo wasn't doing Elephant and Castle any more.

          Anything is better than Wahaca, I know someone who worked there - the behind the scenes stories are chilling. :-|

            I don't doubt it. I have the misfortune to eat one of their 'quesadillas' the other day....
