If you work in Canary Wharf, you could find yourself on one side of a fearsome debate.
No, it’s not fixed-rate vs tracker mortgages, but which street food market to buy your lunch from.
A summer rivalry is brewing between between the Lunch Market in Montgomery Square and Kerb on West India Quay. Which is better.
Held once a month from April to September, the Lunch Market features global cuisine created by local producers.
Hungry visitors can choose from more than 30 stalls and hundreds of dishes. Food is freshly assembled and a hearty meal costs around £7. It’s run by Shepherd Market .
Some of the dishes on offer include Vietnamese salads, pan-fried Portuguese cod, handmade Chinese dumplings, as well as foods from the Caribbean, India, Italy, Malaysia, and Sweden.
Slightly further afield is Kerb , which has been making plenty of noise on the Wharf lunch scene this summer.
Kerb’s strength is its diversity and, some might say, unpredictability.
Ten of the rotating array of Kerb’s best traders pitch up quayside so it’s worth checking to see who’s serving.
Kerb benefits from coming to Canary Wharf more often than the Lunch Market – serving food every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon-2pm.
