Maltby Street Market is without a doubt one of London’s best kept food secrets. Opening in 2010, the market is just a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of Southbank and is a tasty mixture of diverse cuisines from all over the globe.
The place has a certain rustic charm about it, traders squeezed underneath the railway arches cooking up a storm. It’s small but perfectly formed and when we went on a Saturday afternoon it was packed full of people.
After walking up and down the market at least three times, trying to take in all the food on offer, we finally decided on Waffle On.
Waffle On specialise in fresh, sweet and savoury buttermilk waffles. There’s lots of different flavours to choose from: savoury with egg and goat’s cheese, bacon and maple syrup, Greek yoghurt with fresh fruit or chocolate sauce with strawberries and cream ranging from between £5-7 on average. The service was also pretty good, although the stall was really popular we were eating within 5 minutes of ordering.
I went for the waffle with chocolate sauce and strawberries and cream which was delicious – definitely a one for the chocolate lovers out there. But the waffles themselves were really tasty and were soft with a bit of a crunch.. perfect!
If you’re like us and enjoy the luxury of eating out but can’t always afford a £20+ sit down meal, then definitely give Maltby Street market a try. Less touristy than Borough Market, you could eat like a king for under a tenner and still have change for your night out.
