Borough is probably most famous for its fantastic market, one of the oldest in London. It is easily accessible having its own underground station and being a stone’s throw from London Bridge mainline station too. Within a few minutes walk you will find yourself amongst some of the most amazing and diverse eateries. Here are my top 3 restaurants in Borough I have dined at solo so far…
Tapas Brindisa – Spanish Restaurant
18-20 Southwark Street, London SE1 1TJ – 8 minutes walk from Borough underground station
I was drawn to and excited by the menu of this Spanish Tapas restaurant. It offered some interesting and unique dishes that I had never seen before. The owner was inspired by her father’s stories of travelling around Spain. She later began introducing Spanish food to London chefs.
Dishes are reasonably priced. The small bites start from just £3. I particularly enjoyed the cured smoked beef. It was wafer thin, topped with finely grated dark chocolate and manchego cheese. The taste was divine.

Lantana – Australian Restaurant
44-46 Southwark Street, London SE1 1UN – 8 minutes walk from Borough underground station.
When I visited Lantana it was like living in Australia all over again. The only difference being, the colour of the sky! The food here is exquisite. The staff are incredibly friendly and the ambience, relaxed. The food I had was cooked to perfection and there were some excellent vegan choices. I chose the pan fried edamame beans. I can honestly say, they were the best I have ever had. They were served with a delicious, creamy, vegan cashew butter. It is well worth a visit!

Arabica Bar & Kitchen – Levantine Cuisine
3 Rochester Walk, London SE1 9AF – 9 minute walk from Borough underground station
Arabica Bar & Kitchen is a firm favourite of mine. It is nestled in the heart of Borough Market and offers superb Eastern Mediterranean food. It is great for solo dining with counter-top seating and an outdoor area too.
The dish I chose was beautifully presented. The combination of salty halloumi with the sweet and slightly floral flavour of the figs in honey was amazing.
