The name of this weekday street food market is really pushing the definition of the word 'garden', but there's no denying it's as pleasant a lunch spot as you'll find within a minute of the hurtling traffic on Vauxhall's notorious tangle of A-roads. Tucked away in the long outside courtyard behind late-night club Lightbox is a row of around eight street food stands, accompanied by shaded benches, covered seating areas and a couple of bars serving everything from cans of Fanta to glasses of Champagne. The food line-up changes every few weeks and they reskin it slightly for the different seasons, but the quality of stalls on our visit suggested it's more the kind of place you'd visit for a working lunch than a special treat. Nonetheless, Vauxhall's office workers will no doubt be pleased to have an affordable alfresco lunch option.

Went to Vauxhall Street Food Garden on a monday at lunch time. I was expecting this place to be more lively even on a monday, particularly when the sun was out. Four food stalls didn't give me much of choice so I optioned for some jerk chicken. The food was ok and the portion was very reasonable however 

£7 seems to be too much for jerk chicken and for very little variety. 

The concept of a food market tucked in the arches seems to be a good idea although more food stalls (and better food quality) are definitely needed otherwise Vauxhall Street Food Garden won't be able to compete with big and well-known food markets. On a positive note, I quite liked the outdoor and indoor seating area. If the weather is not so good there is still a change of grabbing a drink and seat in one of the lovely booths.

There are not enough stalls and customers as I imagined, even on the opening night. The Chinese stall is good but the portions are small and it is more expensive than the other food markets in London. A bit disappointing as a whole but still can be a good choice to enjoy outdoors if you are around.
