I’ve just discovered a great little passage near Tower bridge, full of nice food stalls and restaurants. It’s this kind of place that is really unique and typical of London, a mix of vintage and industrial scenery with great producers and food lovers.
One of these food lovers is Greek and is trying to bring the best of Greek products to Londoners which are more familiar with Italian, French or even Turkish delicatessen. Products are carefully chosen for their quality, responsibly sourced and mostly organic: olives and olive oil from bio-dynamic farming , bottarga, jams and honey, cheese from Peloponnese but also wines from Santorini island.
He also serves freshly cooked traditional dishes, such as vine leaves stuffed with rice and lamb or a 12-hours slow cooked beef with tomatoes, shallots, spices (cinnamon, cloves) and bay leafs on traditional Greek pasta (orzo-like pasta).
Giannos, the man leading this business, used to work in finance but decided to start his business a couple of years ago, to make a living from his passion. A very inspiring encounter and a bit of Greek sun on this windy Saturday 😀

Maltby Street is definitely one of my favourite street market and although I don’t really live nearby, I will certainly return soon, at least to get more pictures… and more food!.
