I don't really want to write a review as I kind of like the fact that far too few people realise there is a delicious restaurant serving the Borough Market Shopper behind the fish counter. I took clients for lunch and all of them said "I didn't know that this was here!". Everyone knows about the scrummy street stalls outside of this joint plying fresh Cajun prawn or garlic seafood wrap with a fabulous fishmonger just inside, but few venture into the bowels. The restaurant has a regularly updated menu, great specials on the board and the possibility of ordering from the fish counter should something particularly catch your eye. I had an enormous (for me) portion of pan fried turbot with sweet potato mash and brown shrimps, which was both crispy, rich and refreshing with the salty samphire accompaniment. One of my companions ordered the Mixed Seafood Platter special, which was so mouthwatering that even as I write I am having to swallow. I had to steal a mouthful, the scallops were the most sweet and succulent I have ever had, coupled with a juicy madagascan king prawn, as big as your head, that had been marinated to perfection. The wine list has plenty on offer (unusually) under £30 - we had a very decent Muscadet for £25 - from around the globe and so the whole meal is incredible value. Admittedly, none of us opted for starters, and some think that the main courses are a little steep, but unless you really are a guzzle guts, you really don't need them. Plus, you would have to really begrudge the money for such fresh fish treated so well.
Please don't go and let me keep it to myself... precious.
