Burritos in Brixton


Those of you who follow new restaurant openings as eagerly as me will know that Brixton Village has become something of a haven for experimental establishments in the past 2 years. In fact, it’s been bubbling away for years, but the main hype around ‘the village’ in particular, feels more of a recent event and so it was recently I finally crossed another establishment off the list.

Heading down on a freezing Saturday night, we plumped for Mexican at El Panzon. Having been established in the area since 2004, It’s nothing flashy, but it does have excellent graffiti on the walls – in fact I was somewhat miffed that they didn’t offer me a marker pen upon arrival as I was keen to get scribbling. Nevermind, I’ll save that for another bar… Anyway, the important thing is that it is indoors which makes a serious difference when you’re in a covered market in South London in the middle of February.


The menu serves up most standard mexican fare for around £10. The staff are superbly friendly and fun…we negotiated 6 tequilas out of them for £15 which seemed like a bargain and they even had one with us. The food is fresh, tasty and it arrived quickly. Nothing fancy, but great with a group of good friends. Oh and don’t forget that it’s a BYO so you can be as extravagant (or as pikey) as you want with the booze! Hurrah.
