Borough Market Will Open A Big New Street Food Kitchen In November

London’s greatest foodie adventure gets another mouthwatering addition with the arrival of The Borough Market Kitchen.

Are you sick of food markets yet? (There is only one acceptable answer to that question, so choose wisely.) Good, because we have news of another one! To celebrate 21 years of the modern Borough Market, the powers that be will open The Borough Market Kitchen in mid-November – a glorious place, stuffed full of street food traders.

It may be a case of adding the cherry atop an already-delicious ice cream sundae, but we’re not exactly going to say no to more epic food adventures. The Borough Market Kitchen will open in Jubilee Place, in the northern section of the market, with twenty stands vying to exchange your hard-earned for mouthwatering morsels.

Several of these stands are relocating from within Borough Market, amongst them JUMA Kitchen and their Iraqi cuisine, inventive Scotch eggs from Scotchtails, and jamming jerk from Rudie’s Jerk Shack. You’ll also find new arrivals, the most-hyped of which is Mei Mei; specialising in Singaporean dishes such as Hainanese chicken rice and ox cheek rendang curry, it’s the brainchild of much-vaunted London chef Elizabeth Haigh, who also runs the impressive Kaizen House.

The Borough Market Kitchen is committed to sourcing as much of their produce from within Borough Market, in order to drastically shorten the supply chain. Impressively, the entire kitchen will be free of single-use plastics, for which they deserve a big round of applause. Delicious bites and impeccable green credentials? We can’t wait to welcome The Borough Market Kitchen to town!

Find it in Jubilee Place, Borough Market, SE1 1TL, from mid-November (exact date TBC).
