We’re a nation of pastry lovers, so stopping by Portena for a few empanadas is essential when you’re in Borough Market. Admittedly, this Argentinian street food spot doesn’t have a vegan sausage-based empanada on offer, but as well as the three go-to meat numbers: beef, chicken, or chorizo, there are two vegetarian options: provolone and caramelised onion, and spinach and ricotta. They’re spicy, delicious, and great value at £6.60 for three pasties.
