Spore Boys

by Krista



Date of Last Visit: Saturday, March 8th

The Victim: Me, Myself, and I

The Damage: £5

The Background: I was wandering around Taste East when I spotted Spore Boys, who I hadn’t seen before. They are all about mushrooms. I persuaded one of the stall’s employees to get off her phone and get me some risotto. (Really people…are you running a business here or WHAT?)

And you know what? Mobile phone aside, the risotto was pretty darn good. Filling. Not monotonous. I am going to track these guys down again some day.

So it got me thinking…I love finding things like this in London. And I love telling people about them on my blog. Maybe I can help small food and restaurant businesses in London somehow…

Hi there – I had one of the Spore Boys’ mushroom sandwiches a few months ago. They were set up at the Exmouth Market on a Saturday, so that might be closer for you. I thought the sandwich was good (tons of savoury mushrooms and lots of butter), but it took them ages to make each sandwich, so I remember being very cold standing around waiting for the sandwich to be cooked. I’d love to hear what else you try of theirs, and thanks for the risotto tip.

They’re at Exmouth Market every Friday, but often there on a Wednesday or Thursday as well.

I’ve tried the risotto and it’s pretty good to be fair to them, but if you get there any earlier than 12:30 you often have to stand around in the cold and watch them make it.
