Updated: 9 February 2017
Borough market has been feeding London‘s Southwark community since it was created in 1755, and now has over 100 stalls. As the capital’s biggest food market, you’ll find everything from Indian and Egyptian street food to roast dinner rolls and venison burgers here. We pick out some of the highlights to try.

Burgerito at Rare Str’eat

A cross between a burger and burrito (literally the best crossbreed ever), this is not a wrap for those watching the calories but possibly one of the most delicious creations at the market, courtesy of Rare Str’eat. Three mini burgers, all made from organic beef from Cumbria, are wrapped into a traditional burrito wrap with rocket, cherry tomatoes, cheddar cheese, gherkins and jalapeños if you like it hot. This can definitely take on the traditional burrito in the taste stakes.

Moong daal doosa from Horn OK

Indian street food is becoming increasingly popular and this offering is worth a visit at Horn OK. The two dishes served are both vegetarian, and the moong daal doosa is the highlight. This tasty wrap is made from lentils filled with Indian spiced fried potatoes and served with a chickpea and salad garnish.

Scotch eggs at Scotch Tails

Meet Scotch Tails, the team turning the humble scotch egg into an artisan feast. With a selection of gourmet flavours, including the traditional combo of lamb and mint, the scotch eggs are a perfect snack or can be made into a full meal with Scotch Tails crispy sweet potato fries and side salad.

Brownie from Ion Patisserie

This is hands down the best brownie in the entire world, handmade by Ion Patisserie owner Georgeta Decuseara. Gooey, chocolatey and absolutely huge, there are almost no words to describe how good it actually is. Definitely one to share.

Salted Caramel Fudge from Whirld

Fudge and salted caramel is a match made in heaven and the one from Whirld is a pure delight. All handmade with fairtrade ingredients by Justine Carther, the founder of award-winning bakery, Burnt Sugar, you can buy as much or as little as you want and mix and match with plenty of other flavours.
