Taste London, Camberwell

babybat | Sep 12, 200806:11 AM    

Just started working in Camberwell, so I'm exploring the local lunch options. It's not exactly a thriving foodie neighbourhood, but one place I have liked is Taste London, on Camberwell Church Street. It's a fairly small cafe, with a mostly Lebanese menu; the felafel wrap was moist and fresh, the felafel are nice and light, and have finely chopped veggies inside (red pepper, I think) and sesame seeds on the outside, wrapped in flatbread with pickles, salad, mint and garlic/chili sauce. The pickles were a little salty, but all in, generous and tasty for £3.00. The lamb shwarma was delicious - very moist, very lamby shreds of meat, again with pickles and salad, and I think maybe a little pickled lemon and cardamom, finished with a mild chili (and I think tahini) dressing, £3.50. They also do a chicken shwarma and a couple of shish kebabs, which I haven't tried yet, and a dish of the day. Service is friendly - the manager is very chatty and happy to explain the menu; I'd recommend this as a good, fast, cheap lunch.
