Clapham's quickly turning into one of London's culinary hotspots – there's a massive amount going on, from posh burgers to gut-busting Indian takeaways.

Having been awarded the TripAdvisor Award of Excellence in 2012, 2013 and 2014, Hache is the top choice for burger gourmands. The menu mostly consists of Scotch beef steak burgers. The steak blue cheese is rich and indulgent, while the steak le truffle, topped with truffle shavings, truffle aioli, Gruyère cheese and caramelised onions takes the simple burger to an entirely new level of sophistication. There's also lamb, chicken and vegetarian options, and if you're watching your weight, they're happy to swap out your bun for tasty green lettuce. When it comes to burgers, Hache just might be the best in town.
Hella tasty Joe Public sets the bar high for California-style pizzas. It's all about the toppings – stack them high on a tangy sourdough base for an all American pizza sensation that's big, bold and not for the faint of heart. Goats cheese and mozzarella or cured bacon and ground beef: with Joe Public's Build Your Own option, you don't have to choose. There's up to 19 different toppings available. You can add them all if you want to, or just go for one of the delicious set menu options. One thing's for sure, this ain't your nonna's pizza!
WC Wine & Charcuterie
WC Wine & Charcuterie provides everything you need for a grown-up, boozy evening on the sofa. Choose from a delicious selection of wines, as well as cheese and charcuterie to soak up all the alcohol. Trust us, you'll need it. We love the Malvasia, an aromatic option bursting with the flavours of exotic fruit that's perfect as an aperitif, while the Zweigelt goes absolutely gorgeously with just about anything. At one time or another, we've all had that desire to go out without actually going out. Order WC Wine & Charcuterie from Deliveroo, and you can turn it into reality.
Motu Indian Kitchen
SW11 has a new kid on the block. Motu Indian Kitchen, run by culinary minds with more than one Michelin-star under their belt, this latest eatery serves up an authentic slice of India packed full of shimmering, fragrant spices. Start out with a samosa, move on to the lamb biryani, and finish up with gulab jamun (an absurdly addictive dessert made from reduced-milk dumplings). Alternatively, you could go for a Feast Box – it's a main, a raita, pappadums, naan, pilau rice and mango chutney, all in one! The word "Motu" is an affectionate term meaning "fat man" in Hindi. Nominative determinism? There's only one way to find out.
Cool, stylish and yummy, Tsunami has been sending shockwaves through the Clapham culinary scene from its inception. Its modern Japanese cuisine ranges from snow crab shumai to steamed sea bass, and with crispy tempura and tasty sushi rolls to choose from, it's no wonder that Tsunami is quickly becoming South London's go-to sushi parlour. Of course, with Deliveroo you don't actually have to go anywhere!
