On the ball at Cabana Brixton!

I am getting utterly spoiled with foodie ops and nights out at the moment.

I’m actually super glad that my other food based project is healthy, fresh food based, or I think I’d treble in size.  That’s what it’s all about though, isn’t it – a nice meal here, a salad there; a cocktail now, a workout later…..

I’m very lucky in that I’m getting to try a huge and delicious range of foods though, and often in the nicest company.  I wrote about my visit to Cabana Islington for wine tasting last week, and now I’m going to review Cabana Brixton, where I shared a lovely meal with Milly, Katy, Erica & Ashleigh.

The amount of delicious spherical foods on offer was astounding.  The main drink of the evening was a refreshing caipirinha (£6.95), but we also requested some of the delicious Miolo wine we had enjoyed during our previous visit to the brand.

How lucky am I to get to spend so much time with such lovelies?

Over wine, cocktails, and delicious guacamole (£3.95 for guacamole and bottomless chips? Perfection) we had a lovely catch up on all our goings on.

Once we had chatted for a wee while, Ashleigh and Katy popped over the road to take a few fashion shots for an upcoming post.  As is always the way with photos, this took a little while and the food arrived to our table before they returned.  Like the good food bloggers we are we didn’t eat any before we’d all had a chance to take pictures! We did harrass them via snapchat while we waited, of course…

We were utterly spoiled, getting to try lots of different starters. I loved the cheesy baked dough balls (£3.95) and the piping-hot, scrumptious spicy malagueta chicken doughnuts (£5.45), but I think my favourite of all was the crispy Lula squid (£5.95) – the fish was cooked perfectly and the spicy mayo on the side made for a perfect dipping sauce!

The cocktails flowed as the evening eased into night.

And many a flatlay snap was taken!

 The mains were various grilled meats, served up on skewers which are then presented on a platter. All of the meat was well done, but the spicy malagueta chicken (£12.95) was in a league of its own – succellent and tender.  I’d enjoyed it at our Islington foray and it did not disappoint on a second try!

We had various yummy sides with our main; my favourites were the sweet potato fries (£3.95), because I love them, and the wonderful quinoa, avocado and squash salad (£5.45), fresh and tasty with a lovely citrusy tang in the dressing!

To close we took it easy on the puddings, but we did manage a few of the chocolate raindrop doughnuts (£5.95).

All in all it was a lovely visit. The restaurant in Brixton is big and roomy and everyone seemed to be having a lovely time – especially one family who were on fire, comedy wise.  At one point we almost requested to join their table, they were having such fun! I’d really recommend Cabana for a fun meal, full of tasty food and Brazilian flair.  I’m looking forward to heading back soon!

    Looks like a fab meal! I love they do bottomless chips with the guacamole – I always run out before I finish the dip! x

      It's the constant struggle! Bottomless chips are the best.
