This unassuming but well-executed Greek and Middle Eastern eatery offers a compelling reason to make the journey to this distinctly un-glitzy part of Peckham – and that’s exactly what people have been doing since the ‘part-time’ proposition opened as a pop-up in 2012. The stark, mint-green dining room, with its communal benches and tables, has been jazzed up with trinkets, vintage posters and a specials board; otherwise, it lets the food do the talking. Most items on the well-priced menu are cooked on a heavy-duty grill – from smoky but tender octopus with fava beans and capers or juicy pork souvlaki skewers to lamb fillet with burnt aubergines and tahini or a huge, extraordinarily moist special of char-grilled monkfish fillet. The Bazaar’s licence stretches to Turkish beers and fairly pricey Greek wines, although a few more by-the-glass options would be welcome.
