Borough Market is one of London’s top foodie destinations, and rightly so. Home to a myriad different traders selling food from all over the world, the market greets over four million hungry tourists and locals every year. Here is our list of the top treats to sample during your visit here.
A doughnut from Bread Ahead
While all of Bread Ahead’s tasty pastries, bloomers, and freshly baked breads are worth a try, their famed doughnuts are some of the best in London. Baked everyday on site by the Bread Ahead team, the doughnuts are stuffed with mouth-watering fillings such as vanilla custard, salted caramel, and honeycomb. For those with a sweet tooth, stopping here during your time at the Market is a must, and you can also learn how to make these tasty morsels by signing up for a bakery class next door.
For lovers of Spanish food, Brindisa’s market shop is a marvel. Here, you can buy ingredients such as hand-carved Ibérico ham, cheeses, and olives to fill up your larders. However, Brindisa is most well known for its chorizo rolls, which are made up of grilled chorizo slices served in a sliced ciabatta and packed with Piquillo peppers and rocket leaves.
Raclette from Kappacasein
Kappacasein’s stall is one of the most well-known in the Market, and often has long queues of people vying for a taste of their cheesy products. Their raclette dish consists of layers of oozing cheese on top of a bed of soft potatoes and pickles, and is definitely not for the faint-hearted. The stall’s grilled three-cheese sandwiches are also extremely popular, so why not give both a try?
Fresh Pasta from La Tua Pasta
Located in the heart of the market, La Tua is a family run business and serves up authentic, homemade pastas of all shapes, colours, and sizes. Try out their award-winning pumpkin ravioli, tortellini stuffed with black truffle, and beetroot gnocchi, and remember to buy some fresh pasta to take home as well.
