The Borough Market Kitchen
Last Updated: 28th October 2019
We all wish we had a Borough Market kitchen.
You know, the kind stocked with a bounty of fruit and veg fresh off the farms; artisanal jams and spreads; freshly baked bread locally made cheeses… just without the bill as long as your arm.
Now, it’s about to become a reality – because to mark 21 years of being open to the public, Borough Market is unveiling a huge canteen at the heart of the marketplace, crammed with street food-style outfits making the most of the produce just outside.
The 25 residents will be a mix of old and new faces – so far they’ve signed up market regulars La Tua Pasta, Applebees Fish and Horn OK Please, as well as a new pintxos bar from the market’s cookery school, Mimo London, and Rudie’s Jerk Shack. Joining them will be chef Elizabeth Haigh, who continues her line of hit residencies with Mei Mei, a stand specialising in Hainanese chicken rice and Singaporean kopi, coffee brewed from beans roasted with sugar and margarine for a creamy, sugary hit. Mei Mei’s dishes will all be made with Ginger Pig meat and Borough Market produce – and admirably, the whole of The Borough Market Kitchen will have a ban on single-use plastic.
Which should keep punters coming back.
NOTE: The Borough Market Kitchen will open on 18th November in Jubilee Place. It’ll be open Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm (6pm Fridays) – you can find out more HERE.
