BOROUGH MARKET, London, England
My kind of trip besides site seeing and going to museums and historical artifacts is eating the food of the country I am visiting.
Eating the food in another country is experiencing the lives of the people who live there. Besides the restaurants I went to and strategically made reservations in advance to make sure I get in, I purposely went to Borough Market.
On my first day to Borough Market was in a Sunday whereby I found out that they were closed when I got there. Fortunately, there are a couple of kiosks or little restaurants in the area that were open. I tried a sandwich place that sold sausages. The sausage was made with wine. This store is located near the entrance by the church if you are crossing the bridge to get to Borough Market.
Because it was a Sunday, the market was closed. But I returned during the week on a Wednesday and had a fabulous time. Below are some of the highlights of the food I found outstanding!
I had to try the large oysters from this seafood stall next.
Below, I had to buy Jamon Iberico de Bellota. Heavenly at Brindisa that specialized in Soanish foods.
Stop by the truffle place! They sell or sorts of things including Parmesan cheese with truffles and below is Truffle pate.
Various sausages too. And here's what I bought to try. Sausages from below.
Last but not least, I had to try these cream-filled doughnuts. Delightful!
This was my experience at Borough Market on my visit to London last early Fall.
