Tongue 'n' Cheek at Brockley Market

Tongue ‘n’ Cheek at Brockley Market

Brockley Market has been a Saturday morning habit for me since it opened about two years ago.  I have made it my mission to try all of the street food stands from Mike & Ollie, who have been there more or less since the market started, to Rainbo, who I discovered there only a few weeks ago, to Spit & Roast, very, very often.  A visit to Tongue ‘n’ Cheek this weekend was a first for me, and it was about time.  The stall always looks a little quieter than the others, I’m guessing because people are iffy about offal, but those who have been sing its praises very highly. Apparently the Philly Cheese Steak (£8 and bloody enormous) is the best in London.  The Heartbreaker Burger is a mix of beef and ox heart, not for the squeamish, but a great alternative to the generic beef patties found across town.  It had a delicious moist texture and a subtle offaly hum.  The bread was decent, the cheese was good quality and the pickles sharp, however I couldn’t help but think it was missing something in the toppings – perhaps an extra slick of sauce to bring it all together.  For £5.50 this is an excellent value burger, especially considering the high quality of meat that goes into it.  A must for the burger lover who thinks they’ve seen it all.
