Broadway Market seems to be a really thriving these days and I recently discovered a whole new market has sprung up in the school yard at the London Fields end.. There are about 6 new stalls there, selling a variety of things including great looking steak sandwiches from the Argentine restaurant A La Cruz, some gourmet sausages, cupcakes, Churros and a stall selling Mexican fajitas.
The one that really caught my eye however was the 'Yum Bun' stand.. Inspired by the much hyped Momofuku pork buns in New York, a voluptuous slab of tender slow roast belly pork, crunchy cucumber and spring onion is enveloped in a moist, pillowy steamed bun, embellished with a choice of sauce (i found the classic hoisin to work best, although there were other options including a chili sauce which worked well too). You've got the best of both worlds between a crispy duck pancake and a steamed Chinese pork bun. So addictive I think I'm going to have to go back for more next week.
Looking forward to trying some of the other stuff on offer too..
