Pulled Roast Herdwick Lamb Wrap – Cumbrian Speciality Meats, Borough Market


Most people think that Borough Market only trades from Thursdays to Sundays and is dead  early in the week. Strictly speaking, that is true as most of the stall selling fresh produce are closed. But there are a few stalls catering to lunch seekers open at the Green Market area.


Was thinking of giving Soul Food a try but alas, they are not opened. So I went with the stall with the most crowd, Cumbrian Speciality Meats. For Monday to Wednesday, they only have their Pulled Roast Herdwick Lamb wrap so my choice is made. The lamb is roasted, pre pulled and heated up on a electric cooker like the wild rice. Apart from the lamb, the wrap is served with herb wild rice, a mix salad and 2 sauces. A simple yogurt and cucumber and a slightly spicy yogurt sauce. The wraps are made to order and it’s £5 each.


What attracted me to the stall was the whiff of gamey lamb. Some people love it, some don’t. Taste wise, I think it’s ok. I would have loved more lamb and I think the portion of lamb I had was overheated and thus dry. But the gamey lamb taste is still there and mixed with the mild sauce was tasty enough. The wild rice was nicely spiced with coriander while the small portion of salad gave a much needed crunch.


I never expected to eat cheap at Borough Market so can’t really complain about the price to size ratio. Let’s just say I can always have soup at the office canteen to bulk up. Sorry for the blurry picture, it’s a cold day afterall.
