Some food updates in various bits of London

Hello there,

Sooo as I sit here broke (and I mean broke) after far too many nights out in a row (5) I will give a rough food update. Alright, the pre-filled arepa (like no filled arepa I've seen before) at Las Americas in Brixton is awesome. I ordered one after I saw someone clean the place out of them (he bought 20+), causing them to make a fresh batch fast. Really good! A Guyanese cart down the block (Brixton Station Rd) serves up mediocre chicken curry and rotis. The cooking is actually done by a Liberian and while he's very friendly that doesn't make up for the food or prices (which I suspect he invented.) Bush Man Kiosk has some solid Jamaican food while the Portugese place across the street has OK Portugese food at very low (for London. 5 quid or so for an entree) prices. The fish monger a few stores to the right of the very nice Portugese deli along the el tracks sells oysters for 65p each and they're very fresh (at least on Saturdays. He gets them in on Fridays.) I've been getting a few of them and opening/eating them as I shop lately. The Portugese bread cart magically dissapeared, unfortunately. The abgoosht at Mohsen is absolutely first class and might as well have come out of an Iranian mother's kitchen. Sabuj Bangla actually has solid commendable Bengali food, but I am 90% sure that they charge South Asians and non South Asians different prices so be wary.
