Food halls are great for a number of reasons but key ones being plenty of options and great with fussy friends and family. If your friends still can’t find anything to eat there, ditch them! Life’s too short for fussy friends. And with family…err…nevermind 😜 We don’t need that kind of negativity in our lives 💁🏻 #straighttalk 😂
Market Hall has taken over London by a storm. And that’s not because of their expansion prowess, more so the names they’ve attracted under their roof i.e. the likes of Koba, Gopal Corner, Lina Stores, Pophams, Hotbox, Baoziinn, Pastaio and the list goes on.
It’s a fool proof concept really: choice of top traders, walk-ins easily available, option to book for big groups, bars and most importantly it’s a covered venue so no chance of getting caught in a thunderstorm 😂
My go-to place there is Gopal’s Corner, which is the food hall-friendly sister restaurant of Roti King. If you don’t know Roti King…well you need to GO! it’s a hole in the wall near Euston, you’ll come out smelling like the most delicious roti 😂😂 I love their fish fry 🤤
I liked Lina Stores and Popham’s too. The original Lina Stores in Soho is small so it’s not easy to get a table, hence Market Hall is a good way to try their food. Hotbox on Commercial Street has always been a great brunch option for me, and now they’ve joined the food hall brigade.
Another highlight is Oklava and their Black Sea Pide (top image) is a must for you thrill seekers!
While I recommend Market Hall West End for a great day of eating, you should also go to the original restaurants of most of these traders because what you don’t get at Market Hall is the individual personality, ambience and their full menu. 🤤
Have a fun time stuffing your face peeps! 🔥
