LEFTOVERS: Maria's Market Cafe, Borough Market SE1

So sometime towards the end of the summer I was hanging out with Doc Simon, we were picking up a rental car to head out to the country side for some secret business. To my pleasure the car was located in Borough so we decided to stop by for some breakfast before we hit the road.

I've been frequenting Borough for as long as I've been in London and I love the place, recently there's been talk of closure or partial closure due to some train line which is sad. Already, part of the market has been downsized and I'm not sure what the plans are for it's future, but I will investigate.

I've passed Maria's for years and but for some reason never went in for anything, I was usually too busy trawling the market to score some rabbit meat amongst other things. I recall it being the only thing open when Doc and I rolled up and were greeted by the very bubbly Maria. She informed us that her family has run this place for a million years and it was originally around the corner in a brick and mortar location. She told us a famous actor ripped off one of their recipes when he opened a restaurant a back in the day, and James Mcavoy apparantly steps in for the Bacon, Bubble & Cheese Bap which is somewhat of a cult classic.

And damn was she right! This sandwich is perfect, I know it's a simple little concoction but I'm convinced that there's some secret alchemy at play in the bubble and whatever she seasons it with. I smothered the little cheesey, salty bap of joy with brown sauce and surrendered to it's beauty.

Humble, honest and comforting, this sandwich is your friend.

Bacon, Bubble & Cheese @ £3.70 - Maria's Market Cafe.

Yours in Fatness,

Footnote: I was so shell shocked with how good the sandwich was that when we returned to Borough to drop off the car off later in the day I raced like a Crack-Head past all the venison burgers, chorizo sandwiches, tourists and rabbit merchants until I reached Maria's again and literally inhaled the sandwich.
