Fish, Wings & Tings

Friday, 30 May 2014

I have a shameful confession. Having lived a mere 15 minute bus ride from Brixton for almost 4 years, I've never visited Brixton Market. 

Shocking I know. Please forgive me and keep reading!

Rahal was super keen for a South London meet up so we thought it was the perfect time to get my butt down to the market for some multicultural grub. It was a soggy, grim Thursday but the rain held off just long enough for us to escape into the passages filled with international delights.

The market was bustling with trendy Londoners, all keen to head south of the river with the promise that tasty food and boozy drinks awaited them. The choice of food options is almost too huge and we spent a long time trying to decide. Rahal is one indecisive man!

After much squabbling, we settled on Fish, Wings and Tings as I’d seen it in Time Out that week. Situated on a corner spot in Granville Arcade, we grabbed a table outside the tiny one-roomed restaurant and browsed the menu. Fish, Wings and Tings is Caribbean style dining started by Trinidadian, Brian Danclair who even has his own sauces which he serves at the restaurant.

I was tired after a long day at work so I admit I instagrammed the hell out of this photo to hide my tiredness!

Move over Levi Roots, there’s a new sauce on the streets!

It’s a laid back friendly vibe, with bright yellow walls and snakes and ladders painted on the tables. As it was a Thursday we thought it only right to order 2 Rum and Tings. 
Boy they were strong! We ordered some food quickly before I started grinding down low and singing “I’m drinking rum…..and reeedddd bullll”.

First up, starters.

Codfish fritter with ginger and lime aioli – these deep-fried salt cod balls were light and tasty.

Pepper Prawns with Granny Suzy Pepper Sauce. This sauce will blow your mind, its super spicy.

Mains.

2 x Jerk chicken with tamarind BBQ sauce, annatto rice, pineapple and mango chutney and coleslaw. The portions are huge and completely against Rahal’s carb free diet but he was pressured into it by a chicken loving fiend so it doesn’t count!


Ye olde Jamaican saying says: “Betta belly buss dan good food waste,” (It's better to overeat than to waste great food) so we filled our faces! 

Fish, WIngs and Tings
The chicken was tender and the sauce spicy and sweet. The rice and coleslaw are great for calming the fire on your tongue!

Service was quick and friendly, and prices were pretty cheap considering the amount of food we gorged on.

After dinner we thought we’d better walk off some of that chicken so we had a mosey around the market, popping into shops on the hunt for free samples!

The atmosphere in the market is vibrant and colourful, with everyone enjoying amazing looking food and enjoying themselves. I was kicking myself that this gem had been on my doorstep all this time and I didn’t know. 

Sorry that I’ve been a rubbish neighbour Brixton Market, I promise to make more effort in the future!
