Based in the heart of Spitalfields market, Taberna De Mercado is all about beautifully fresh ingredients cooked simply. And it’s done well; the dishes here are simply delicious. The creation of Nuno Mendes, he of Chiltern Firehouse, Taberna offers good, honest Portuguese cooking in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. The staff are lovely, the cocktails divine, and the pasteis de nata? Incredible.
Recently awarded the Bib Gourmand for the quality of food and excellent prices, Taberna is hotly tipped for a Michelin star in the near future. And I think you’ll find it’s fair to say they deserve one.
