Last weekend, after a long-awaited visit, I was fortunate enough to try the tasty food at Station 26, a 100% gluten free restaurant in the heart of Brixton Village Market! I saw a few of my fellow instagrammers posting their food/exeperiences and I immediately had it on my ‘must visit list’. I went with one of my best friends who isn’t Coeliac but is vegetarian, she thoroughly enjoyed it because they catered really well for her dietary requirements too. It honestly was the cutest, quaint independent restaurant which had a calm and authentic atmosphere.
We were taken to our table with pretty flowers, a candle and even a blanket (a thoughtful wintery touch). Long story short, I will definitely be back again soon!
For my starter, I tried the Chorizo and White Beans Bruschetta with rosemary and a hint of chilli. This was unreal. Different to any bruschetta I’ve eaten before and full of flavour.
Afterwards, I surprisingly went for a vegetarian option (normally I tend to go for some sort of meat) because I just HAD to try the Cyprian Halloumi Burger. This was served on a toasted brioche bun with cherry tomatoes, mixed leaf salad and Station 26’s homemade pesto. It was accompanied by the tastiest gluten free chips I’ve ever eaten and their signature mayo.
On top of this, they also sold one of my favourite gluten free lagers from the Czech Republic, Celia. So considering it was a Friday night, I treated myself to a couple. I cannot explain how much I enjoyed this meal and would recommend it to anybody, gluten free or not!
