Borough Market

I love Borough Market. The smells of every possible cuisine hit you like a wall of delectable aromas.

The problem is, with so much choice, with so many enticing flavours on offer, how can you possible pick one to have for lunch?

I wondered around for ages on my first visit which, luckily, was a week day. If you’re brave enough to attempt to visit on the weekend I hope you’re not claustrophobic and don’t mind queuing. Its one of the best places to visit in London in my opinion and the food is incredible but that’s by no means a secret and therefore the world and his friend turns up to get lunch – you still won’t be disappointed.

Eventually, I settled on Kappacasein. You’ll soon spot their stall, its the one with the huge queue – its incredibly popular!

They only have two options – a cheese toastie or potatoes covered in melted cheese. Either is good in my book but I opted for the cheese toastie in the end.

Just look at that cheese…

It was damn tasty. Rachel Tries Life ¦ Borough Market

If I could I would have lunch there every single day.

I will spend the rest of my London days trying each and every stall in that Market.

    The pictures are amazing, but please tell me that the third picture, say that thing that has black sides to it isn’t a block of cheese? Lol It looks gross! And I thought blue cheese was kind of disgusting to look at.

    Anyways, those giant pans of I’m thinking is paella? Right? I’ve only seen those types of pans used once. The jars of honey, brownies and those cookies with the jellied hearts in the middle look really good too. 🙂

    Yay! Glad you got there at last. I started my teaching career in The Borough 30 years ago and the market was nothing like it is today, it was a real wholesale fruit and veg market then. We used to go up there with a trolley on the day of the summer fair and get donations of fruit and veg from the traders, which we would wheel back and the children would bag up and sell!!

      That sounds amazing. Very different from now, i just love the mix of cultures that are represented there. Im slowly making may way around all the london markets. One of my favourite things to do in london, i love how they all have their own style and signature.
