London - 40 Maltby Street

Maltby Street, where I understood was the spot where dissenting ex-Borough Street Market traders congregated, wasn't exactly what I'd pictured in my mind. Instead of a mini-Borough Market clone of sorts, it looked like a very "industrial" back-lane with shops (including quite a number of motor workshops & other junkyard types) occupying arches beneath a railway line.

40 Maltby Street - a wine bar which serveds surprisingly quite good food - was located near the end where a queue coffee-lovers snake out the door of Monmouth Coffee (Maltby St branch).

Our food:

- Cooked Yorkshire ham

- Fennel, tardivo and orange salad

- Ricotta gnocchi with lamb ragu

I particularly enjoyed the gnocchi - creamy spheres of sheer deliciousness, bathed in an intensely deep ragu gleaned from slow-stewing.

The ham was super-scrumptious.
