Favourites 68

Boasting sizzling street food, old-school pubs and a trendy restaurant scene to boot, Borough Market is one of the best spots in London to grab a bite – and you’re sure to find something for everyone. Here’s our ultimate guide to London’s oldest food market…


There’s no better place to indulge your pasta fix than Padella – London’s enduringly popular Italian eatery, and winner of Observer Food Monthly’s 'Best Cheap Eats'. It’s just outside the market, and there is always a queue, but believe us, it’s well worth the wait. Their small plates of tagliatelle with nduja, mascarpone and parsley and pappardelle with eight-hour Dexter beef shin ragu are to-die-for.

Kappacasein specialises in grilled cheese toasties, made with Bill Oglethorpe’s (owner of Kappacasein) rich, handmade cheese (very similar to Swiss raclette). We recommend the Montgomery cheddar, onions, leeks and garlic on Poilâne sourdough. Our mouths are already watering.

Tacos El Pastor
