Thanks to Borough Market’s warren of old-school fruit and veg stalls, street food traders, classic pubs and truly excellent eateries, London Bridge is now known worldwide as an impressive foodie hub. As well as plenty of great places to feast inside the market, there’s also a wealth of nearby restaurants with equally accomplished cooking. Whether you want a casual evening of snacking on tacos and margaritas, slurp some memorable plates of pasta or go for a romantic meal with an eye-popping view, it’s all happening here – these are the best restaurants in London Bridge.
For a memorable Mexican meal, venture out of the market and down Tooley Street to this bright blue cheery restaurant. Run by husband and wife duo Edson and Natalie Diaz-Fuentes, this is a celebration of authentic regional dishes, many made with ingredients you’ll only find in Mexico. Nibble through hibiscus enchiladas, pork belly tacos, slow-cooked short rib with Wahacan mole and sweet plantain with crumbly fresh cheese. They also do a potentially dangerous weekend bottomless brunch with free-flowing margaritas for £33 per person. You have been warned.
