Ropewalk, Maltby Street Market, London
At the weekend I headed out on a little adventure to Maltby Street Market. I’ve done Borough, I’ve headed to Taste, and to Feast (I’m quite the foodie…), but Maltby Street is a little gem of a find. It’s on a smaller scale to the big boys but the selection stretches right down the street, the sellers are friendly and helpful, and the food…it’s just fantastic! Meats, cheeses, sizzling barbeques, rows and rows of pretty little cakes…yum! We started at Tamal for the most delicious little tacos – rich, spicy and super tasty. We’d spied The Cheese Truck whilst wandering down Ropewalk and had to join the queue for the cheesiest grilled cheese this side of NY. British cheeses with delicious add-ons make for a perfectly balanced sandwich of yummy flavours and oozy cheese. Next stop was Phatbreads. With their disco ball wood fired oven, super fun gorgeous girls behind the counter, and of course the most amazing flavour combinations, it’s an absolute winner. Strolling through the crowd, we happened to bump into one of my oldest best friends, the lovely Pips Taylor. I might have been right on the other side of London but it just shows, our city’s not so big after all!
