The Borough Market Kitchen Review: New at Borough Market is a partially undercover food court. The Borough Market Kitchen opened before Christmas, and I’ve eaten lunch there a few times now. If you’re looking for places to eat lunch in Borough Market or street food near London Bridge, you are in for a treat.
I know I’m a bit late in posting my review about the new food court, but I was busy at Christmas, New Year and then I had a mass of admin work I needed to do on my blog. That’s probably a good thing because it has meant that I’ve managed to check out a few more food vendors.
The Borough Market Kitchen Food We’ve Tried
Some of the food vendors moved over from the primary market, and others are new. The set up comprises of stands and stalls. The selection of cuisines on offer is excellent. You have a choice of Thai, Japanese, Spanish, Jamaican, Mexican and more. There are around 20 vendors who may change from time to time so check online before your visit. Homeboy and I (and some friends) have tried the following food options:
Arabica East Mediterranean Cuisine: Treat yourself to a Falafel Wrap filled with chickpea falafels, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mint, tahini and chilli sauce on flatbread. Chicken Shawarma Wraps, Mezze Lunch Boxes and Baklawas are also available.

The Borough Market Kitchen Area
The food stalls are around the outside with tables and benches in the centre, and a stadium type seating arrangement. The market is outside, although it does have a cover. You will find toilets near Applebee’s Fish Stand. For more information, please go to the Borough Market website. For information about the general market read my Borough Market London For Food Lovers article. The opening times are Monday to Thursday from 10 am until 5 pm. Friday from 10 am until 6 pm, and Saturday from 10 am until 5 pm. The address is Jubilee Place at Borough Market. If you are unfamiliar with the Market, it may be challenging to locate. If you walk past the Arabica restaurant on Rochester Walk and turn left past their food stand, you will find the food court. The closest station is London Bridge, and if you follow the Borough Market exit signs, you will immerge from the station close to the Market. Alternatively, travel to Borough station and walk from there. I hope you find something tasty to eat!
