1. Re: Food

Borough Market is the usual suggestion. Just wander around until you spot something which matches your tastes.

Gordon Ramsay opened a few places last year called Street Pizza. They might be worth a look:


Not really street food as most people would understand it though.

You don’t give your location but obviously lockdowns have made a difference. Pre lockdown I would have recommended https://www.kerbfood.com/markets/

Strutton Ground Market is also a good bet for lunchtime.

Before covid we used to enjoy Greenwich Market, but if you're not planning to be in the area I wouldn't make a special trip.

I've watched some YouTube videos about London street food I like the channel called Roberts London. He covers a few different places, although who knows what things will be like now compared to when the videos were made.

I love Paul, as suggested by lk. It's not what I'd call street food but I've always found the food very good.

7. Re: Food

Unlike many parts of the USA, you do not get the food carts on the streets in the same way. This is partly owing to regulations, including the need to have toilets nearby. Thus bakeries and coffee shops will sell food to go that can be eaten perhaps on park benches, or there are certain food markets that sell a lot of food from their stalls, but they also tend to have toilets and tables/chairs set up somewhere.

But what kind of food were you looking for? Just something for a cold, casual and possibly inexpensive lunch like a sandwich? Something 'traditionally English' or even ethnic cuisine?

I have not had a chance to see what has returned to London, but now that indoor dining is once again allowed, so I can cover my options if the weather turns manky, I shall be venturing out again soon.

Further to post #8, if the UpMarket interests you then it would be remiss not to visit Spitalfields, which is right around the corner and has plenty of food options including food trucks: https://www.spitalfields.co.uk/

I also second Roj's suggestion of Greenwich Market, although agree it's not one for a special trip on its own - great for getting lunch if you're visiting other attractions in the area though.
