Buns and Haggis at Broadway Market

Irish, Scottish, what’s the difference, lassie? 
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Phone Message”) 

During my last visit to Broadway Market I had the chance of trying the famous Scottish toastie and one of my favourite Xiao Chin in London.

Deeney’s is a Scottish street cuisine brought to you by Paddy and Carol. Directly from the Highlands you can have an innovative combination of toasties, from traditional ham and cheese to eccentric haggis. You can find them during the week (Tuesday to Thursday) in Greenwich Market, Saturday in the Schoolyard in Broadway Market, and Sunday’s in Chatsworth Road. 

Prep time
We got the new sandwich sensation the Macbeth, hot haggis, melted beautiful cheddar, caramelised onions, and rocket. Beautiful, full of flavour, great combination and balance, definitely a must try in the street food circuit. Marisol got the Ham-Ish, smoked bacon, same melted cheddar, caramelised onions, and rocket. Really nice, good option if you’re not a haggis fan.

My second stop was in Netil Market, just a couple steps beside Lucky Chip stall you can find Bao Bar. I was looking forward trying their traditional Gua Bao as the last time I got their great buns they only had a special.

Bun time
Small six stools bar but you have plenty of space in Netil Market to gorge your bun peacefully. Got my slow braised pork belly, pickles, peanut powder, and coriander bun. The bun is delicious, really good, the belly nicely cooked, and good balance with the ingredients, I just love it. 

I highly recommend both options, take in consideration that both are only on Saturdays in the area.
