With bated breathe we wondered how the new Kerb Camden would look after its renovation. We needn’t have bothered, not too much has changed visually, you can still eat from an array of different stalls offering a multitude of cuisines. Chilly on the autumnal Friday unveiling, we're warmed by a freebie Monkey Shoulder cocktail, courtesy of owning a Camden Card and winning complementary tickets to the re-opening.
Slightly swisher and more stable structures now house the traders, who range from Burger and Beyond to Bian Dang. With £4 offerings for the re-launch, it's a good way to sample a handful of dishes. Rich, coconutty beef rendang from Makatcha is our favourite, meat so tender it's in shreds. Followed closely by Baba G's Indian spiced lamb burger, with sweetness coming through from the chutney and crunch from the bhaji. Friendly stall holders chat to us, a clear love for their food.
Usually jam packed, it makes a welcome change to have some room to navigate, since tickets have been limited. With or without renovation, Kerb has a recipe for success.
