Artisan scotch egg stall Scotchtails, which first began trading in 2013, has announced the launch of its first permanent site.
Scotchtails can now be found at the Borough Market Kitchen, a new and eco-friendly development that launched within the iconic Borough Market this month.
The new site will serve an extended menu of signature scotch eggs, each one made fresh to order, alongside a collection of new egg-based dishes. Ham, fried egg and crispy confit chips and cheddar and egg toasties will be on the menu, as well as a scotch egg collaboration with tapas joint Brindisa.
Its founders, Oliver Hiam and Dominic Hamdy, first began trading in Borough Market in 2013, where they gained popularity for their “adventurous” combinations of ingredients. All their scotch eggs are handmade in small batches in Hackney, using Burford eggs from Clarence Court.
The duo, who first met at UCL, also own all-day restaurant and wine bar Crispin in Spitalfields, as well as specialty coffee shop Lundenwic in Aldwych.
Scotchtails joins over 20 new traders in the Borough Market Kitchen, including Mei-Mei by Elizabeth Haigh, La Tua Pasta, Brindisa and more.
The new Borough Market Kitchen is single-use plastic-free, and the communal site was constructed using recycled sustainable materials. Scotchtails’ new site features reclaimed green ‘London pub’ tiles, chalkboards and vintage brass lamps, “giving the hatch a traditional-pub-meets-pie-shop feel”.
