Breddos Tacos and Berber and Q have been confirmed for the new kitchen space at Old Spitalfields Market, as flagged up by MCA last month.

The operators join the 10-strong, Nuno Mendes-curated line-up at ‘The Kitchens’, which will see the market floor modernised during the first phase of refurbishment for the historic market.

Also taking space at the scheme will be Thousand Knives, a new offering from Dalston Japanese restaurant and music venue Brilliant Corners; and street food favourites Yum Bun, who will serve steamed buns.

Bar Barbarian, a new Sichuan offering from Hugh Thorn and Luke Clarkson; Dumpling Shack, from cult street food traders John Li and Yee Li; and Flank, nose-to-tail beef cookery over open from Brighton chef Tom Griffiths have been announced.

Meanwhile Happy Endings, will serve ice cream sandwiches and desserts; Rök, Nordic inspired fermented food; and Sood Family, fresh pasta dishes.

The completed market will feature more than 100 market traders and a new events programme, all to be unveiled in spring 2018.

The revamp of the market and selection of the traders has been overseen by Ten Ten, a creative organisation headed up by chef Nuno Mendes and hospitality consultant Stephen Macintosh.

Mendes said: “We want to put Old Spitalfields Market back on the map as one of the most exciting and lauded destinations in London. It’s a chance for us to bring Old Spitalfields Market into the modern day, and to celebrate all of the creative people and talent within this pocket of London. In an age where retail is becoming much more impersonal and en masse, we want to re-establish that unique connection between traders and consumers, creating a more rewarding and personalised experience.”
