41 Maltby Street, Rope Walk, SE1 3PA
Tube: London Bridge
Rope Walk might only be a hundred metres long but every weekend within the narrow confines of this pedestrian walkway you can find mouthwatering food from around the world. Although the path is fairly tucked away it's easy to find as the surrounding streets are always crowded with visitors enjoying all kinds of delicacies from spicy burgers to steaming portions of veggie Indo-Persian curry.
Having found your way to the market it's a good idea to stroll through and see everything before getting stuck in. Every taste and dietary requirement is catered for; from the strict vegan to the died in the wool carnivore on the hunt for a quality burger. Likewise the food is international with French patisserie, Asian wraps, Japanese Gyoza and Mexican Burritos all competing for your culinary attention; not to mention good British fare like Scotch eggs and the ever popular Beef Steaks stall.
The sweet toothed will also not be disappointed with lots of delicious treats such as freshly made waffles alongside the long established and very delicious Bad Brownie stall with fine patisserie provided by Comptoir Gourmand.
Visitors looking for something liquid to accompany their food are spoilt for choice with the Modern Beer Bar, Hiver Beers and M Wines all represented as well as Craft Coffee and Bumpin' Rinds juice bar offering non-alcoholic options.
The success of Maltby Street Market shows the incredible interest in great street food, making this small patch of SE1 culinary heaven.
