Porteña (Borough Market, London, United Kingdom)
If you’re looking for delicious Argentine cuisine in the heart of London, look no further than Porteña at Borough Market. This popular food stall serves up authentic and mouth-watering dishes that will transport your taste buds straight to Buenos Aires.
Porteña serves a range of dishes such as empanadas, steak sandwich, canoncito and alfajores. There are several varieties of empanada like beef, ham and cheese, chicken, provolone cheese and caramelized onion, and many more. In addition to their delicious food, Porteña also serves Argentine wines and beer.
Empanada is what caught our attention, the signage, and the different varieties on the stand. At £3.30 per empanada or £9.00 for three, this is a deal specially at London food prices. You can also opt in for 2 empanadas with wine or beer at £10.00. We just grabbed a single empanada to try and got the Cheese sundried tomato with basil flavour, it was a bit oily becuase of the cheese, but it was good, it was not too flaky, moist and the texture was great, be sure to eat them fast specially during winter as they are good fresh of the oven.
Overall, Porteña is a must-visit destination for anyone looking for authentic Argentine cuisine in the heart of London. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is lively, and the service is top-notch. Be sure to stop by and see for yourself why Porteña is a fan favourite at Borough Market. Will definitely go back here if another opportunity to travel comes by. Muy Delicioso!
