London's best street food
Pitching up in weekend markets, an ever-expanding troupe of London street food traders are revolutionising the London dining scene
Like a cheap eat? Want to know where to eat when you're at one of London's food markets? Here’s our guide to affordable street food in London's best food markets, from sit-down cafés to takeaways, tried and tasted by Time Out's Eating & Drinking reviewers.
Borough Market, 8 Southwark St, SE1 1TL. 7407 1002, www.boroughmarket.org.uk) London Bridge. Open for lunch 10am-3pm Mon-Wed. Full market 11am-5pm Thu; noon-6pm Fri; 8am-5pm Sat.
If you’re happy eating on the hoof in a throng of people, then Borough Market is one of the best places in London to find lunch for around a fiver. Be warned, there’s not much going on Monday to Wednesday, but come Thursdays the place is rammed, and only gets busier at the end of the week. It’s a lively and atmospheric place though, packed with a mix of serious food-lovers and tourists. There’s always a queue for the chorizo sandwich (rich spicy sausage, bitter rocket and sweet-sour piquillo peppers, held together in a lightly toasted white roll, £3.75) from Spanish deli Brindisa (www.brindisa.com). Other meaty options include the excellent sausage rolls costing only £3.50 from Ginger Pig (thegingerpig.co.uk), the shredded duck confit sandwich served in a soft white bun (£5) from Le Marché du Quartier, or salt beef served in sturdy ciabatta with pickle and mustard (£6) from Northfield Farm (www.northfieldfarm.com).
Bermondsey-based dairy and cheese-maker Kappacasein (www. kappacasein.com) has also caused a stir with its toasted cheese sandwich (£5), a humble snack that’s been honed to perfection. The combination of montgomery cheddar with leek, onion and garlic between two slices of sourdough bread is so loved that it has its own Facebook fan-page. Enjoy it with a steaming cup of dry cider (£2.50) from New Forest Cider (www.new forestcider.co.uk). The Total Organics kitchen has a counter laden with aromatic vegetable dishes; a slice of omelette or tart, plus three salads (ratatouille, chickpea tagine, and rosemary and sweet potato are possible options) costs £5. A falafel wrap (£4) from Arabica Food & Spice (www.arabicafoodandspice.com) comes generously portioned with all the trimmings. Try some of their tooth-achingly sweet baklava for afters. Alternatively, pick up some cheese or cured meats from any of the food stalls, along with a loaf of bread from artisan bakery Flour Station (www.theflourstation.com), and escape the crowds for an impromptu picnic by the river or in Southwark Cathedral’s grounds.

Spinach & Agushi is very tasty but the prices are not what it says above its more like rice and 2 stews Â£6 small and also they have half prices deals at the end of the day where I got sick of the food they served me next morning, they need to warm the food before serving people.
Happy Vegetarian falafel stall in Portobello - the best, freshest falafels and friendliest service in London. And cheap to boot, highly recommned this one.
Goddards Pie & Mash- Are we referring to the one on Deptford High Street? If yes, then it is still open to business.

The shop did close, but there is a Goddards stall in the Fountain Market near the railway, selling the pie and mash we have loved for years!
Goddard's in Greenwich closed in 2007 at least, if not earlier, and this review was posted in July 09! It was a sad loss that this review doesn't see fit to register at all. Does Time Out ever actually visit the places it reviews?!
Goulston St by Petticoat Lane has an embarrasment of choice when the market's on in the week (not sure about weekends) - 2 Thai vans, 1 Chinese, 1 Indian. And then there's the chippie and other delights like the Brazilian cafe nearby. The sort of quality stalls they had in Spitalfields before it turned into Centreparks.
it would be useful to actually review some of these stalls. luardo's does wonderful freshly cooked burritos, with homemade guacamole, salsa etc at a very reasonable fiver. whereas Caribbean Food sells offcuts of terrible chicken in flavourless tepid water also for a fiver. Sunny's olive tree has 15 salads, all freshly prepared, offering a great variety of flavours and textures. In the summer, the most popular stall in the market...
Most of the markets are in East London except for Portobello.. how about stalls in Acton Market, Berwick Street, Ealing etc?
You missed out the Leather Lane market in Farringdon - Some great food from around the world...its right outside my office door!
Good point about Lower Marsh, I recently worked in the area for a few months and it's a great little street with a regular street market which has a good range of tasty food.
Time Out missed out the REAL London street food .... those disgusting unidentified ingredient sausages frying with onions on illegal (but still rife) grills wheeled about the west end.
