Best Newcomer 2013 - The Malaysian Deli

Congratulations to the Malaysian Deli (338 Brockley Road), which has won the 2013 Brockley Central Newcomer of the Year Award for best new high street business, collecting 39% of reader votes.

Brockley is relatively poorly served by Asian food businesses, a problem made all the more acute by the temporary closure of Thai restaurant Smiles. The Malaysian Deli not only serves delicious meals, it's also a source of ingredients that are hard to find locally.

Affordable, friendly and delicious, the Deli has succeeded in uniting foodies of every hue. A rare achievement and an award well-earned - welcome to the BC Hall of Fame:

Best Newcomer 2011 - Brockley Market
Best Newcomer 2010 - El's Kitchen
Best Newcomer 2009 - The Orchard
