Where and What to Eat in Streatham
Pizza - Bravi Ragazzi
Sourdough wood fired oven cooked pizzas, these really are top notch pizzas. The menu, like the restaurant itself, is small but quality driven with a good selection of pizzas at reasonable prices. The All In One starter for £10, which includes bruschetta, focaccia and caprese salad, is a great way to start the meal and can be shared by several people. Pizza wise, their version of the classic ham and mushroom is delicious, or for something different try the crudo e rucola which comes with mozzarella, rocket, parma ham, parmesan shaving. They also deliver between 7 & 10.30pm.
Brunch - Boyce da Roca
For the best brunch in Streatham head to Boyce Da Roca on the high street which serves up a great twist on the full English with home made baked beans, spinach and delicious sour dough, don’t worry bacon and sausage still feature. They also serve every foodies favourite – avocado on toast. The café is small and get’s very busy, but is well worth it. Quirkily you can get coffee so large it’s served in a bowl, or a milk jug in the shape of a cow.
Lebanese - Ilili
Ilili is a fantastic BYO Lebanese restaurant, I highly recommend ditching your traditional starter/mains way of eating and instead go all in on the mezze items. Chose a selection of both hot and cold dishes and share amongst your table so you can try as much of this delicious food as possible. You can’t go wrong with grilled halloumi, hommus shawarma and soujok (spicy pan fried lamb sausage). If you reserve a table ask for a window seat.
Italian - Adomme
Luckily for Streatham residents there’s not one, but two great pizza restaurants in the area. Adomme has a wider menu than Bravi being a Trattoria as oppose to just a pizzeria. That being said it’s hard to move away from the pizza menu because they really are so good. The fried courgette and aubergine starter is also a must in this friendly, family run restaurant.
Pub Grub - Pratts & Payne
Named after the department store which once took pride of place in Streatham, this Antic pub is a great place to both eat and drink. Decked out with vintage delights, there’s a small garden out back and a few screens for showing sport when there’s a big event on. The Sunday roasts here, complete with big Yorkshire puddings, are delicious and are served in the specially designated dining area round the back of the bar. prattsandpayne.com
