Chie said she really fancied pizza last night, so I thought I'd take her to Franco Manca in Brixton for lunch today. I'm not really much of a fan of going South of the river, but had been once before to this place with a couple of people from work, and it has a bit of a cult following.
It's pretty cheap and quick - not a place to have a slow lingering lunch - but the pizza is pretty good. It was also quite interesting to see how Brixton has changed since the last time I was there (a couple of years ago now). The original shops and market stalls are increasingly being taken over by a tidal wave of "gentrification" - of delis, coffee shops, and all sorts of trendy new eateries. It's actually quite exciting - the density of interesting looking places to eat - but I do wonder how the original West Indian community feel about the changes happening to their market.
