Bando Belly back – but in Brixton!

Bando Belly, the iconic South London soul food joint, is back and better than ever! After a tragic incident that destroyed their original home in Peckham, the restaurant has finally found a new home in Brixton's Pop Brixton community and creative space.

To celebrate the opening weekend the Young Londoner team went along to check out the fare.

With its unique fusion menu inspired by the Founder’s Jerkish™ heritage, music, and popular culture, Bando Belly is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who visits.

The menu features a range of dishes that combine American, Caribbean, and Southeast Asian flavors with techniques from around the globe. Customers can indulge in Bando Bites & Dips, including the signature Deep Fried Oreos (delicious), Tater Tots, and Lobster Mac N Cheese Balls (some of the best we’ve tasted!). The new menu also includes exciting plates like the ‘Bando Baggys’ and ‘Ban Ban Noodles’, featuring Tiger Prawns, corn, potatoes, garlic, and a spicy Bando twist.

Bando Belly’s mission remains the same – to create a community hub showcasing local bands, DJs, and talent with live music and good vibes at its venue. The restaurant is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 12 pm – 9 pm, and you can also get Bando Belly delivered straight to your door via UberEats.

Overall, Bando Belly’s return is a testament to the power of community support and the resilience of small businesses in the face of adversity. If you’re a fan of soul food fusion, you won’t want to miss this unique dining experience.

Bando Belly is open from Saturday 8th April at Pop Brixton, 49 Brixton Station Rd, London SW9 8PQ. Opening hours will be Tuesday to Sunday, 12pm – 9pm. You can also get Bando Belly delivered straight to your door via UberEats. Visit www.bandobelly.uk for more info.
