KataKata - Restaurant in Brixton
KataKata is an independent restaurant in Brixton, South London. In the Cameroonian dialect of Douala, KataKata means to be creative in overcoming difficult challenges. This naturally begs the question; what challenges is it that KataKata are seeking to overcome, which require them to be creative and flexible in their approach?
This is a tricky one to answer, as the ambitious team at KataKata have a host of cultural problems they hope to stimulate change against. To provide some sort of summary, the team hope to combat; food poverty in our capital, our waste culture, our anti-social eating customs and our damaging dietary choices.
And how do they do this? Everything started by this incredible organisation is done so with this philosophy in mind... The furniture is 2nd hand; donated by local members of the community and given a new lease of life. The restaurant itself is a space of peace; open to people of all backgrounds and faiths and one that promotes interaction between visitors.
In terms of the food, the team champion healthy, nutritious options and have an extensive Vegan menu, thus encouraging visitors to move away from obesity and heart disease inducing foods. On top of that the signature Gallettes and Crepes, upon which your delicious veggies are scooped and wrapped within, are made from buckwheat and as such are gluten free.
Healthy meals shouldn't break the bank, though, so the team are efficient, creative and resourceful with their ever-changing menu.
Expect the smell of fresh foods filling the air, the smooth sounds of some easy-listening background music and the cheerful chatter of your fellow diners, while the friendly, welcoming staff leave you feeling satiated, relaxed and unmistakably peaceful.
For great food, expressive personalities (and artwork) and something different from your average lunch or dinner time treat, KATAKATA is one truly inspiring local restaurant that aims to nurture, as well as become a part of, the beating heart of the wider Brixton community.
