Makan Cafe London restaurant travel

The banana button is a unique little delicacy that can be had at the Makan Cafe in Portobello. A marriage of banana bread and a doughnut, it’s moist and tender and so good you’ll buy a dozen to take home. The gastronomic delights here include fresh mint tea served with mint leaves floating in your tea cup, breaded crab claws, coconut rice (gooey and sweet), the vegetarian laksa, sweetocorn bhaji, and a variety of noodles, among others. Take out or eat in at this unpretentious and very affordable café. Confidential Tip: When in the mood for people-watching, the eclectic and International crowd is a living, breathing advertisement for the United Colors of Portobello Road.
