Go bananas in Covent Garden
As one of London’s street-food stalwarts, the Kerb team have been popping up across the city – from London Bridge to Kings Cross – for years. However, their latest offering, Kerb at Seven Dials Markets, is extra-special as it represents their first indoor space. Sitting in what was once a fruit and vegetable storage space on Earlham Street, the pastel-coloured interior of the two-storey Banana Warehouse is home to kitchens, communal seating and a cute bookshop downstairs and countertop cafes upstairs.
One of the biggest attractions has to be the cheese conveyor belt (yes, you read that correctly) at Pick & Cheese. If you can resist the sushi-style selection of British cheeses, there’s also Monty’s Deli, where salt beef, latkes and Reuben sandwiches are the order of the day, while all things fishy are being served up at Ink – expect crispy calamari, battered cod and some of the best chips in town. Before you leave, swing by Cucumber Alley for small-batch ice cream from Hackney Gelato and plenty of local producers selling their wares.
