Spearheaded by Anglo-Jamaican Chef Patrick Williams, who has previously led the kitchens of some of London’s finest Michelin starred restaurants, Soul Food has been delighting the Borough Market faithful with its take on Caribbean street food since 2012. With recipes cooked fresh from scratch every day, it offers traditional cooking inspired by the tastes and ingredients found in Africa, India, the Caribbean and much of the Americas.
At Soul Food the charcoal stoves are always glowing. You’ll find everything from BBQ Chicken and rump steak to seared red snapper and juicy seasoned prawns sizzling away, their aromas floating through the air and quilting the market with a slice of sunshine. Those with a more adventurous streak may savour the depth of flavour found in the curry goat, curry mutton and chicken pelau. For a lighter lunch, the freshly prepared, traditional Caribbean soups are created with our own handmade stocks, bubbling away on the simple coal pots, the very same as you’ll find outside every family home in The Antilles.
Simple, fresh and delicious, Soul Food is not only popular with tourists and the local business community; it has become a firm favourite of London’s Caribbean community, many of whom travel for miles for a true, authentic taste of home.
