Euromight Dinning Out Guides
Guides to restaurants serving African, Caribbean, Indian and other ethnic food across Europe.

Brixton Market in south London is a vibrant shopping locale, with food along with a host of other products from all over the world. London's multicultural residents create a flavor and flair that make the city one of the most diverse in Europe.







London offers a distinct multi-cultural flavor.  Among its diverse inhabitants are people of Caribbean, African and Indian descent. You can enjoy many of these communities throughout the city. Here are a few spots to get you started.


Brick Lane

The subject of a best-selling book and movie, this east London street has traditionally been a business hub for the city’s Indian community. Among the many offerings - Indian restaurants that draw fans from across the country.



Long a cultural center for people of African or Caribbean descent, the area has one of the most vibrant open air and indoor markets in the UK. It’s just as easy to pick up a piece of yam, a bunch of green banana, or a West African mango, as a Seville orange here.



Visit this area for its diversity.

There has been a black presence here since at least 1630. Meanwhile, people from the Indian subcontinent first came as nurses of British children in 1900, while Caribbean people have been in force in the area since the 1950s. Hackney is also home to significant Turkish, Vietnamese and West African communities.
