Mei Mei is right in the heart of the feelgood buzz of Borough Market. On the changing menu you’ll find things like assam fish curry, deep fried chicken rice, nasi lemak, and a fantastic coconut milk ‘Captain’s Curry’ that warmed the cockles of our grumpy little hearts on one particularly savage rainy Thursday. The woman responsible for this bright-bowls, big flavours spot is Elizabeth Haigh, a chef who gained critical acclaim at fine dining spot Pidgin before opening Mei Mei.

Dating back to the thirteenth century, London’s oldest food market is a cornucopia of gourmet goodies. It used to highlight British produce but nowadays you’ll find global traders and street-food vendors: enjoy French confit-duck sandwiches, Ethiopian stews and scotch eggs (elevated, of course). Once notable for its crowds, the market now has a Covid-safe capacity. Arrive early (get coffee from Monmouth), pick up from Neal’s Yard Dairy, Brindisa and Bread Ahead, and head for a riverside picnic.

For a thousand years, a market has existed at the southern end of London Bridge, making this still-busy ancient gathering point a superb spectacle. Overflowing with small shops, food stalls cooking in close quarters and wholesale greengrocers catering to London's top-end restaurants, Borough Market makes a delicious lunch stop, afternoon grazing session or pure dinner-party inspiration. Expect it to be crowded, even on days with limited traders.
