When it opened in autumn 2016, street food market Mercato Metropolitano looked pretty glum - like London itself, it was pretty grim in the winter, all grey and wet, and the random location between Borough and Elephant definitely didn’t help. In warm weather though, it makes sense - it’s a good spot to rock up at the weekend with a few friends and eat and drink in the sunshine. On top of the usual craft beer, burgers and hot dogs, there’s an Italian slant (clue’s in the name) and as well as a build-your-own tiramisu and Italian sandwiches, there’s a grocery where you can pick up some fancy cured meat and cheese. Give it a visit when you want something a bit more chilled out than the usual street food scene.

Chik’n is an upmarket chicken shop on Baker Street and feels like a cross between a Shake Shack and KFC. Great for quick snack if you’re in the hood.
