Taberna do Mercado

Old Spitalfields Market, 107b Commercial Street, LONDON, E1 6BG

2 rosettes

'Market tavern' is appropriate, as this is within Old Spitalfields Market. It's a modest, even minimalist, place, spacious and bright, with wooden dining chairs at plain tables and painted brick walls. Small sharing plates of Portuguese-inspired food is the theme, built on specially sourced ingredients. Kick off with something from the 'snacks' section - perhaps prawn rissóis (a breaded pastry from the Lisbon region stuffed with shellfish) - and pick and mix from the rest of the menu, from imported cheeses and cured meats (perhaps smoked red wine sausage) to scallops with brown butter and walnuts, say, or cod tongue, and end with creamy egg sponge cake.
