Old Spitalfields Market, a space that recently offered Wagamama at best, now has all sorts of excellent restaurants and stalls providing options to sit with at the bar, or to take away. Head to Monty’s Deli for an egg and cheese bun or their classic reuben. For salty and sweet beef noodle soup there’s Jia Ba, or go for a knock-out aubergine or beef sandwich from Taberna Do Mercado. There are plenty more delicious options, from dumplings to desserts, making it a real destination for a delicious lunch or casual dinner.
