Walking into Lazy Hunter is like entering one of those great spots in New York you’d only go to if someone who lives there takes you. Set on a slightly insalubrious stretch of Kentish Town Road, they’ve nailed the Brooklyn brunch vibe from having one of of those draught curtain things to welcoming staff dressed in plaid. Basically, if you’ve ever been to the Lodge on Grand St in Brooklyn you’ll know what I’m going on about. The food is glorious – breakfasts are big, the burger choice is hearty (but if you don’t like truffle mayonnaise make sure to tell them as you order as they slap it right on) and if you go for the Dark Forest Hog burger you get it in a black brioche. Which is very Camden isn’t it? It’s laid back, it’s bigger than you’d think and all in all, it could be one of my favourite spots in 2017.
