Featured Clapton Restaurants
1. The Elephant's Head Pizza restaurant in Clapton 43 Lower Clapton Road - E5
A 'pizza pub' on the former pub site of The Elephant's Head, with pizzas from Santa Maria, DJs and music.
2. Uchi Japanese restaurant in Clapton 144 Clarence Road - E5
2018 Review: “Not much to look at from the outside and still a bit surprising to find even though the area is very up and coming” – this “tucked away” Japanse café is esteemed by its small fan club for “utterly delicious” sushi: “you won’t even notice that you’re perched on a wooden stool”.
3. Del 74 Mexican/TexMex restaurant in Clapton Lower Clapton Road - E5
Hot on the heels of Breddos and El Pastór, another trendy taqueria arrives in London - this time in rapidly gentrified Clapton (just a few doors from P Franco). Tacos and quesadillas are served alongside mean margaritas at this no bookings spot, soon to have a sibling in Hackney's Mare Street.
4. Lucky & Joy Chinese restaurant in Clapton 95 Lower Clapton Road - E5
Opened at the start of 2020 – after a series of pop-ups – this funky Clapton canteen serves a short menu of excellent Chinese dishes as filtered by the sensibilities and chef’s travels of (non-Chinese) owners Ellen Parr (ex Rochelle Canteen and Moro) and Pete Kelly (ex Morito). Spicy cocktails also abound as does retro ’80s-tastic decor. Limited survey feedback thus far, but Jay Rayner drooled.
