Taberna do mercado

Old Spitalfields Market, 107B Commercial St, London E1 6BG

Nuno Mendes has gained many fans with his cooking already at Viajante and later Chiltern Firehouse. His Taberna do Mercado is a return to his Portuguese roots. But what a return! Dishes are exploding with flavours and after trying one you desire to try more. Lovely place to go in company and to share plates enjoying as many dishes as possible and then return to try also others. I know you will return. I will.
