Yet another cheap eats gem in Borough Market, La Tua Pasta have been making their 40 different types of pasta each evening, to sell in packs the following day, since 2006. At a couple of their stalls, they'll cook them and serve them up hot to eat on the go, with a varied selection of tasty toppings. Pass by to discover special seasonal fillings, as well as the year round regulars. 

Join the quickly growing queue and choose what you want in your giant tortellini - I went for the wild boar. Then you pick a sauce; the most fitting option to compliment my meaty pasta? More meat in the form of a bolognese. You'll leave on your merry way with big bowl, and an optional sprinkle of cheese and olive oil. To be honest, I could have done without the relatively nondescript bolognese and saved a pound. But the pasta pockets themselves - the stars of the show - were soft and crammed with filling. Truly delicious. I'm eyeing up a meaty mushroom fix for next time.
