The very first post of the SW Food Blog

Greetings hungry south-west Londoners!

Immediately I know I will regret this post. For some time now, I have planned to start a food blog documenting eateries, restaurants, cafes, markets, food shops, and pop-ups in the south west London area. Every time I ate out at my local restaurant, I would say, “it’s about time you started that blog about restaurants in the local area”. Internally (occasionally externally), I would reply, “yes, that’s something for next month”.

But next month came and went. I still ate in my local restaurants, yes, but I was under a lot of pressure to move house. I didn’t know where I was going to live. Was I to move away from my dearest Battersea?  Move away from some of the finest culinary experiences I have had in the last two years of my life? It was a real possibility. So much of a possibility was it, that at one point, I thought I was going to move to Islington – yes that’s right – NORTH of the river.

In the end I did move. But it was much closer to home; Brixton.

To my great relief I was still in my beloved SW postcode after all. I have got my act together (I moved last week – get me), so here we are.

And that was the first blogpost.

Disappointing, I know.

  1. Inspired idea. There’s so much foodie fun happening in London and no one ever talks about it… I’m really looking to following your blog…

  2. Welcome to Brixton – you’ll love it!

    • Thank you! I have friends in the area so I was quite familiar with it before I moved – but now that it’s on my doorstep there’s no stopping me. Really appreciate the comment and the welcome. Look forward to following your blog too!
