Where to eat in Tooting

This particular area in South West London is a great place to live. Tooting Broadway has been named one of the 10 coolest neighbourhoods on earth by Lonely Planet and I can see why! If you choose to visit this part of London you will find a mixed community that cohabits peacefully, endless shopping options and many nice restaurants and pubs.

I especially like the Tooting and Broadway markets with all their little eateries and shops from different parts of the globe. Also the choice of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. Here you can find info about my favourite places in this trendy neighbourhood.

A new addition to Broadway Market, in Tooting Broadway, The Lab offers Mediterranean dishes and brunch favourites with a cocktail menu to die for. For £14.90 you can choose a main and 2 side dishes; or go for unlimited prosecco and mimosas for £20 (during 1 hour and a half). The interior design of the place is absolutely amazing and the presentation of the cocktails is really cool. Outstanding service and great atmosphere. Totally recommended!!
