Maltby Street Market: A Feast for the Eyes

Maltby street market

Last weekend I spent the day with one of my oldest and most fabulous BFF’s (and baby boy) while hubby took charge of the parenting reigns for the girls. My friend and I only get one maybe two of these days together per year as she also has three kids and not much spare time. She suggested we do something different to our usual format of a long lunch. We went to Maltby Street Market in Bermondsey, and oh my word am I glad we did. I think I might have just found my Mecca!

Due to my dietary restrictions there was some food I was unable to have but plenty that I could – or at least bits of a dish. Like the burger pictured below, London’s best apparently and I can see why! A generous sized beef patty cooked med-rare, smothered in emmental cheese and juicy onions, topped with the most divine pulled pork and a few slices of gherkin. I avoided the bread but gave the rest of it a good crack of the whip. It did not disappoint.

We shared the burger as well as a falafel salad box from Hoxton Beach which was a different kind of delicious. I indulged in a few tiny samples of truffles, brownies and cakes, the perfect amount of sweet for me after a meal these days. Hubby thoroughly enjoyed his bacon and maple syrup brownie that I brought back for him.

I’m already planning to take another bestie there for our Xmas lunch next month, and cannot wait. Think we’ll treat ourselves to some Little Bird gin cocktails next time round! I’m salivating at the thought of the food.

London’s best burger apparently – the ‘dirty little secret’ – it was pretty damn tasty!

  1. Oh, my goodness, it’s when I read posts like this that I become slightly annoyed with the fact that Belfast only runs markets like this at Christmas! That burger looks amazing and the bruschetta? I could have it right now, with some of that artisan beer! #MagicMoments

  2. I love a good street market. I made 100 burgers myself yesterday but that was for our bonfire party, I can’t say I piled them up to look as delicious as the ones here, these look amazing. #MagicMoments

  3. Wow this looks fabulous! That beetroot and goats cheese looks dreamy and I tried the African Volcano stuff at Food Blogger Connect. Was fab! Hope you had a good grown ups day out.

  4. Oh wow! I am jealous!! I am going to put that on my list of places to visit next time i am in London!
