Food Corner market: bunny chow

A rather upmarket version of Durban’s famous ‘bunny chow’

As someone who lived and worked in Durban for four years I can’t wait to head down to the new Food Corner in Brixton Station Road and try out Bunnychow’s version of Durbs’ famous bread ‘n curry treat.

Their photos show a more upmarket version certainly but I am sure the gorgeous curry sauce-melting-into-the-bread effect will be the same.

Will the curries be as hot as some of the Durban delicacies? I’ll have to wait and find out – and try and find room for some of the other goodies on offer.

Brixton Station Road Community Market is bringing five new hot food traders to offer lunch time specials for around a fiver. Aside from Bunnychow there will be Pangea, offering a wide variety of street foods, Bare Bone Cue with slow, pulled pork, Hanoi Kitchen with Vietnamese dishes and Woodbox Pizza.

All of them sound delicious so I expect to be buffeted around a bit while queuing.

Tomorrow’s opening market will be running from 11.30am to 2.30pm, on the corner of Brixton Station Road and Pope’s Road.

Usual operating hours will be from Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm and BMFT (Brixton Market Traders’ Federation) is aiming to develop the local market economy on week days.

Important news for local workers is that the BMFT will be offering a 10% discount to all Lambeth Council, Veolia Environmental Services, Police Station and Rec Centre staff who visit the Food Corner and show their badge/identification.

AND other organisations in Brixton can apply to join the discount scheme by emailing camila@brixtonmarket.net

 

So what do they say about the five food stalls?

 

BUNNYCHOW

The original urban Durban street food lands in the UK and debuts in Brixton. Little loafs hollowed out and crammed full of big global flavours. Big helpings of flavourful chicken, mutton, beef & vegetables all coated in bold delicious sauces served in award winning artisan little loafs.

Be one of the first to try the legendary bunnychow!

WOODBOX PIZZA

Woodbox offers sourdough ‘street’ pizzas similar to the ones found all over Naples& the surrounding area & beloved by Neapolitans. They make them in front of customers in a wood fired oven from the freshest, ingredients we can find. The sourdough pizza is made from a traditional recipe, freshly prepared and proved for 24 hours. Their ingredients are sourced from quality British producers.

Camila Cabral, Marketing Manager of BMTF said: “We identified that there was a demand in Brixton for more options of high quality food on the go during week days, with great taste and affordable prices. We expect the FOOD CORNER to be a success, and that we can offer more trading opportunities in the near future.”
