London's Borough Market is one of my favorite food destinations in the world. And my visit last week reconfirmed why:
1. It's brimming with the best traditional British purveyors (exceptional international vendors too) - demonstrating why London's food scene is world class. Gorgeous pork pies, famous English produce, mouthwatering artisanal cheeses and traditional game. Classic Britain.
2. The maze-like setting oozes charm and history. It's located in the shadows of Southwalk Cathedral, and originally dates back to 1276. Go hungry and get lost in time.
3. Cool British films like "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," "Bridget Jones' s Diary," and "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" were shot here. It just looks like a movie set.
Neal's Yard Dairy. Take one whiff inside and you're floating in cheese heaven. Tasting is encouraged so take advantage of it. Vendors are excited to share their passion and knowledge.
And if that's not enough....
Here are a few more mouthwatering reasons why it's unmissable:
|A giant vat of Thai green curry|
Fish and prawn wraps from Applebee's Fish Shop
|Grilled chorizo sandwich from Tapas Brindisa|
|Anything from Roast To Go|
