At the weekend some friends and I ate at Casa Sibilla – Italian by food and name, and tapas by nature – in Brixton Market.
Never having been to Brixton Market before, it was a pleasant surprise to find a goldmine of delicious little cafes and eateries. It seemed to have every type of cuisine imaginable, from Japanese to “Champagne and Cheese”, and all were very casual dining/street-foodesque. I felt very cool just by being there. Every place was packed, so it really was a case of settling where you could find a seat – not really a hardship, as all the dishes I spotted being served looked incredible.
Miraculously, we managed to grab a table at Casa Sibilla. The menu recommends ordering two to three dishes per person (naturally, I ordered three) and we shared a good portion of the menu between six of us.
Clear favourites among the group were the pork cutlets, beef and pork croquettes and the rabbit terrine.
