Where’s your favourite area in London to go and eat out?
I loved the vibe at Urban Food Fest in Shoreditch where we’ve been ‘lab testing’ the dishes for my new RASTAurant! I will always love Brixton Market as an area to eat out though of course.
What’s your local restaurant you always go to?
Negril restaurant in Brixton hill.
Do you have a particular dish from a restaurant that’s your go to?
All types of fish and anything spicy.
Favourite restaurant for Jamaican cuisine?
I have a few favourite takeaways but I don’t know have a favourite restaurant serving authentic Caribbean cuisine. That’s why I’m opening my own!
Favourite cafe/restaurant for lunch?
Sergio’s on Great Titchfield St. It’s the perfect spot for lunch before meetings and interviews at BBC. I love that it’s family run and they’re always friendly and welcoming.
Best place to grab a coffee/tea?
I go to the coffee shop at The Ritzy in Brixton a lot but I love the Spicy Masala Chai tea from the stall in Brixton Market.
Favourite street food stall?
Favourite restaurant for a celebration?
Giuseppe’s Italian near Borough market, London Bridge.
