Following a 14-year residency selling mezze from a cool box on Borough Market, the team behind the Arabica Food & Spice Company (founded by James Walters) have launched their first permanent eatery on nearby Rochester Walk. Staying true to their roots, the owners focus on veggie mezze, rare-breed meat and fish cooked over single-variety English charcoal – plus a clutch of stone-baked pastries: Dexter beef and bone-marrow kofta, sautéed chicken livers with pomegranate molasses, courgette, feta and dill börek, Istanbul-style mussel rolls, and candied Anatolian mandarin with buffalo ricotta and crushed pistachios. Arabica is fronted by a strong team with experience in top London venues such as Lima and The Experimental Cocktail Club . Also watch out for a street cart outside, selling falafel and wraps on market days.
