Try the Bibimbap Stall, the bulgogi is terrific.

If you want something cold then the Salad Kitchen, across the road from the Bibimbap Stall, will sort you out a lovely, tasty and colourful sald with a range of textures as well as tastes.

I haven't tried any of the other stalls as the two above are soooooo good!.

street food
Jun 2019
Cool place if you like street food. Whitecross Street Market exist in London (I was told) since the '70s. I tried the Turkish delicacy and it was very tasty. If you want to see the lively and bustling street food market in London, go to Brixton Market or visit Brick Lane Sunday Market.

Seems Pared Down Sadly...
Aug 2019 • Friends
It’s only been a year since I came down here and enjoyed a wander through the countless food trucks and stalls and couldn’t make my mind up, in fact so come here on average once a year at the very least.

I knew as soon as I hit Whitecross from a side street coming from City Road that it wasn’t the same, I reckon there are now one third to a half less options than the last time despite it being a beautiful August Thursday, I was actually quite shocked. Numbers of people seemed to be down as well - makes sense I suppose - although we did arrive only at midday.

My food was a bit meh, katsu chicken with rice and veg - it was ok but missing something for me. Still popular to a degree, the vibe of old was missing, maybe I caught it on a bad day and of course choice of food can be so hit and miss.

Will definitely return because I regularly hit the area, there’s a thousand options around Old St these days mind..

Nostalgia trip from student days
Jul 2019 • Couples
In the seventies my husband and I were in student accommodation in Bunhill Row and used Whitecross Street market regularly. We came for a nostalgia visit and returned to Kennedy’s Fish bar for lunch. It was absolutely excellent- I had the baked cod and it was divine. Excellent value and great service. Can recommend it highly

Surprise street party
Jul 2019 • Friends
Our spontaneous visit on Sunday just happened to coincide with the annual Street Festival. This was a complete surprise and thoroughly entertaining. Luckily, it wasn’t too busy and the street art was stunning. Interesting entertainment, very unconventional but immensely enjoyable.

Turkish Wraps - must have
Jul 2019 • Solo
I regularly visit here at Lunch and it is always a delight. The Turkish wraps (at the Barbican end, not the Old Street end) are to die for. For just a fiver you get an enormous amount of food that is just terrific. The Two Brewers pub is also very good

The Iskele 0 - 1 Turkish Gozleme Company... "Not all Turkish wraps are created equally"
Apr 2019 • Solo
As a regular visitor to Whitecross Market, I've tried a fair proportion of the foods on offer. Today I thought I'd try a Turkish stall I'd not yet tried. The Iskele stall, which is affiliated to the restaurant of the same name, offers pizza wraps filled with halloumi, lamb or chicken. I've tried another Turkish stall along from this (TURKISH GOZLEME COMPANY), which I have to say offer a bigger, better product for the money (£6). The Iskele's wrap was small, flimsy and not very well filled. TGC by contrast cook their substantial sized bread in front of you, fill it to the max yet charge the same price. I can see why their queue is so much bigger.
Nothing worse than having your lunch and immediately have to start planning what to have later as you're still hungry. :(
Will I be coming back to Iskele? No. Not a chance. In future it'll be TGC every time for my Turkish 'fix'.

Great fun and great smells

What a great place to walk through with the lovely smells of food from all over the world. Some stalls offer samples, but it all smells and looks great - and at affordable prices
