7 London markets with the best street food on this planet

Brixton Village and Market Row

The strength of this indoor food court is in variety: here you can start with classic barbecue or pizza, go to Japanese okonomiyaki, eat traditional komidas corrientes and empanadas paisas (taking pity on those who do not know much about Colombian cuisine: it is fried meat with rice and beans, and not sweet pancakes). And to complete this marathon - have a cup of good coffee with a slice of an exciting cake.

Berwick Street Market

Do not let Soho deceive yourself: in the midst of the noisy sellers of flowers, fabrics and fruits (Soho market is 300 years old! can you imagine that!?) there are plenty places where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. Often there may be nowhere to sit down and you can get stuck in a line consisting mostly of locals, but falafel, burrito or Greek souvlaki are worth to eat them on the go.


This exemplary hipster place is so popular that after 19:00 you will have to give £3 just to see how other people eat. But it will not last for a long time, because it is impossible to watch people eating such tasty food: spicy wings, sweet and sour ribs, salted donuts and a few bars with craft beer and complex cocktails will make you an accomplice.

Bang Bang Oriental

The huge food court of Pan-Asian food in the non-obvious for culinary entertainment district of Colindale is the largest not only in London, but, perhaps, throughout Europe. Just imagine: three dozen restaurants of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Taiwanese, Malaysian, Indian and Singaporean cuisine offer all the best at once. Here you need to try dimsam, bibimbap, congee and noodle soup with fried duck. Rather far away (of course, depends on where YOU live), but it is worth spending time on it.

Leather Lane Market

A good example of the integration of traditional London and actual gastronomic trends - the local shopping rows are as old as several centuries. But all the culinary hits here, of course, will be presented simultaneously. Even if you live or work in a completely different area, take a look here on a weekday until about noon: Thai red curry, fried cheese, Vietnamese rice with pork and vegetables and delicious falafel for quite a convenient price – that is for what you, probably, will come back.

Brockley Market

The market with fresh, in most cases organic (which explains their considerable cost) products works in the morning on Saturdays. Local residents agree to stand in line and occupy local benches for a glass of wine, Korean hamburgers with chicken, fried potatoes, cheesecake with apple and black currant and vegan cakes. Take with you cheese and seafood - they are very good here.

Maltby Street Market

Just ten minutes walk from London Bridge, and you are captured by the flavors of the whole world, soaring in the former railway tunnels. Here people come for African hamburgers, hot Taiwanese waffles or lemon French cakes. From the early morning there are many visitors here, but they can all be understood - it is worth waking up early for the steak cooked on coals or fresh oysters.

The number of homes in London will need to rise by a quarter within 25 years to cope with its rising population,official figures showed today.

Earlier this summer, Yoshua Bengio, the McGill-based Artificial Intelligence pioneer and one of the world’s leading authorities on neural networks and machine-learning, added his name to a growing global list of experts and laboratories in the field that are pledging to have no role in the creation of what are called “lethal autonomous weapons” (LAWs).
