If you've spent any time near Borough Market over the past few months, you've likely noticed swarms of people queuing outside a modest restaurant on Southwark Street.
And for good reason.
Padella, which serves hand-rolled pasta dishes starting at £5.50, was just named the best place for cheap eats in Britain at the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2016, and earlier this month was given a Bib Gourmand for "good quality, good value cooking" by the Michelin Guide.
Business Insider took a look inside to see what all the fuss is about.
A project of Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda, who also run the North London Italian favourite Trullo, Borough Market's Padella runs on a no bookings basis, meaning there's almost always a queue.
However, it's more than worth the wait – the Pappardelle with Italian fennel sausage ragu, £8.50, appears to be the hit, and has become an Instagram favourite.
Upstairs, the seating is sleek but informal, with diners either watching the chefs in action at the kitchen bar or sitting at stylish high-top marble counters.
