Go go go! Find the pale green burrito bus. Order pork or beef with guacamole. 100 meters further down the street (toward Barbican) is a pub that allows one to bring in street food. Symbiosis at its best.

The market runs from about 11h30 to14h00 each week day. There are a wide variety of food stalls and food trailers with tastes from around the world. The market is extremely popular with the locals and there are queues at the various stalls at lunchtime. We enjoyed some Turkish Pizza Wraps with lamb, halloumi and a variety of vegetables, as...

Katsu curry stall: went there once, I didn't like the Katsu curry sauce which had chunks of vegetables in it. Would not go again. Burrito Van: I had vegetarian burrito, and would go again Paella Stall: nice flavoured food would go again.

The title says it all. You'll find yourself turning 360 as the options available and at such great prices is overwhelming in a good way. You'll find yourself having trouble choosing once you're there.

What an amazing selection of food vendors. Every type of street food you could want. Spoilt for choice. Enjoyed a lovely curry and samosas. Absolutely brilliant.

Such a good variety of kitchen. Food is done on situ, fresh, tasty and quite generous. I chose Musaka . It was wonderful. Warm and filling. There is a problem of how to manage food with no chair... i solved it by asking a restaurant near by to buy the coke and sit there😊 they were kind and invited.

A busy street food market with plenty of choices - there's something for everyone here. The queues can be long at lunch time but service is pretty quick. Everything including Indian, Mexican, Thai, Turkish and British favourites; take children here too and be confident there will be something here that they'll love. Two thumbs up for the Two Brewers pub... More

You should definitely visit this market. It's got a variety of choices of food and quite delicious as well. Try the brownies at the end of the street! Oh, and go on an empty stomach!

This really is a market catering for the working lunch crowd. Lots of interesting choices at very good prices. Queues long at some stalls - but the do move fast. Best to go early or later to avoid the 1pm madness. Busier the better the weather. There is a nearby park area adjacent to the cemetery if you want somewhere... More

A wonder collection of stalls and vans serving street foods from around the world. Lately, I've been drawn to the Burrito Van -- I recommend the carnitas with guacamole. Hot sauce, of course. Where to eat? There's a pub just across from Waitrose that let's you bring your own food. Have Fun.
