What to Eat Right Now in the Market / Part 2

Dishes not to miss at Old Spitalfields Market, including food from Sweet Hill, Indigo, Yum Bun and Sangucheria.

Fish Bun at Yum Bun

After a brief stint as a Friday-only special at the end of last year, the Yum Bun Fish Bun is now back by popular demand. On the menu seven days a week, this moreish pescatarian treat features crispy fish, green chilli, coriander and lime sambal, lettuce and mayo, served in a signature soft steamed bun. Order one on its own, go for the double, or combine with one of their Fried Chicken, Pork, or Mushroom Buns, along with Asian slaw and Gyoza, in a Yum Bun lunch box deal. The possibilities are endless.

Tandoori Chicken at Indi-go

Indi-go are known for their delicious Indi-Bento boxes, but there’s a new special on the block that’s turning our heads (and everyone else’s). Their perfectly spiced Chicken Tandoori special, cooked to order in their on-site tandoor, comes served with rice and salad and sprinkled with fresh coriander. The perfect solution if you are looking for something filling, but healthy.

Bavette Steak Ciabatta Bun at Sangucheria

Bringing a taste of Peru to our corner of East London, Sangucheria is an exciting new regular addition to our weekday market. Peruvian-inspired sandwiches and boxes are the order of the day, where you chose from chicken, pork and vegan, and additional toppings including fried egg and homemade guacamole. While everything’s good, the cooked to order Bavette steak bun is our current favourite. And judging by their growing queues, it seems we’re not the only ones…


Tofu Pudding at Sweet Hill

Feeding our thirst for Tawainese food trends in the Market is new dessert bar, Sweet Hill.  If their Grass Jelly feels like an adventure too far on your first visit, their Tofu Pudding is a good place to start. Chose toppings to sweeten and colour this authentic Taiwanese dessert, including pretty pink rice balls and traditional adzuki beans.
