A Foodie afternoon in Londons Borough Market



I spent my Saturday afternoon meeting up with 2 college friends at a few restaurants (Brindisa, Wrights brothers and Feng sushi)  in a lovely food market situated in London bridge. With its root in Roman times, Borough Market can lay claim to being Britain's oldest market dating back to the 13th Century. The market itself is split into a few areas , selling spices, fresh fish and meats, fresh fruits, burgers, loaves, cakes, oils, teas, the list goes on. There are also loads of stalls giving away numerous free samples. All this food on display meant only one thing , the day was shaping up to be a foodie afternoon in Borough market.

Delightful cheese

               
                                              
The first place we stopped at to eat was a small Japanese restaurant with a very relaxed and calm atmosphere called Feng Sushi. We sat by the window and had some of the freshest and tastiest fish Borough market had to offer.


Deluxe Mixed Selection: hand dived scallops salmon, tuna, MSC ikura and local mackerel


After an hour or so, we moved on to the next restaurant, The wright brothers seafood restaurant and bar . Nice wine, very friendly customer service and delicious Oysters makes this place a worthy visit if you love slurping down oysters

 Scared look before oysters


Delicious Cumbrae Oysters


Japanese Oysters with Soy sauce, ginger and Wasabi. You definitely have to give this a try if you do get to visit


We had Jersey, Cumbrae and Japanese Oysters washed down with a glass of champagne.Looking forward to going back

After having our fill of oysters we passed by 2 shops worth mentioning if you love Cakes and English white wines.

I bought 2 slices of the Toffee apple crumble and Summer Berry. I didn't share any of it. :)


Delicious brownies. Buy 3 get 1 free deal.




I spent a few summers here just drinking English white wine. Give it a try if you ever visit Borough. 


Champions English white wines and British produce


Our last pit stop was the delightful Spanish restaurant, Brindisa. The plates of food was small, fresh and very tasty.


Pan de Pincel: Toasted St Johns bread with herb and garlic oil.

Summer Vegetables: With friend duck egg, Manchego cheese and romesco sauce. Very Moorish dish



Galician Style Octopus: With baby potatoes, Paprika and Olive Oil. I love this dish.



Gambas Al Ajillo: Chill garlic prawns. Moist and juicy prawns with a heavenly smell.


Traditional black rice: With squid and alioli.


Lovey tapas and a nice menu, the food at this restaurant was quite impressive. Make sure you stop by if your ever in the area.

All in all it was a very good day. I got to hang out with friends that I hadn't seen in a while. There is still tons left to eat at borough market ( I know it seems like we ate everything already), so make sure you look forward to future blogs.

  1. I really like your borough market blog, as I have been to borough Market and to the restaurants you visited I really do believe you couldn't have described the food any better.
