There’s a reason why your trendiest mate upped sticks to London Fields - at the weekend, it’s one of the best places to hang out in London. It’s even better in the summer, and Broadway Market is a big reason why. Hit up Dumpling Shack for some tasty (if pricey) pan-fried dumplings, Black Bear for killer cheeseburgers, and Butchies for a brilliant fried chicken sandwich. Just next door, Netil Market is home to the original Bao (of Soho queue fame), where you can grab a fluffy, porky bun without waiting for ages. Afterwards, wander over to one of the surrounding bars for a drink and some A+ people watching, or collapse in London Fields for a nap. It’s a scene, but it’s an incredibly entertaining one.
