Website: Camden Markets

Tube: Camden Town, Chalk Farm or Mornington Crescent
Rail: Camden Road Station or Kentish Town Station

Whenever we visit Camden Market it feels like we’ve crashed one huge street party. It nearly always has a festive, carnival highly charged atmosphere. You have your punks, gothics, pot-heads, druggies, dazed tourists and an occasional ordinarily dressed sane local. Even though it is open all week, go on the weekends and you’re more likely to see more stalls and to cop an eyeful of more intriguing people dredged up from the depths of their dungeons.

One big reason to go is for the Caribbean stall and more specifically for the delectable goat curry. One way to find it is to find the Lockside Lounge Bar (75 Camden Lock Place, NW1 8AF), go down the steps and voila, you will find a plethora of international food stalls waiting for you. French, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Thai, Caribbean, Japanese – it’s all there.

Food stalls

The Caribbean stall is what we want to focus on. Huge shallow vats of bubbling curry send instant endomorphic messages to your brain. Definitely go for the goat curry. If you’re worried that the goat may be as tough as…well, a goat. Don’t be fooled. This goat has the same consistency as lamb gently simmered over many hours. For those not into hot stuff, don’t worry, as this curry ain’t hot or spicy to eat. Served with rice for a fiver it’s simply the dog’s bollocks, the cat’s pyjamas, the gnat’s nads.
