Walking around Borough Market

Borough Market

The entrance – some work is going on now

This Saturday we went for a walk to Borough Market in London, a fantastic food market.

If you are in London and like food (seriously, who doesn’t?) it is definitely worth a stroll. Have some cash on you too – you will definitely be buying stuff.

The smells and the photos are really great but people are the best feature. You end up chatting with everyone, they explain, invite you to take photos, tell you what kind of wine to choose to accompany what you bought.

Here are some photos (there is a full set on flickr)

How is it possible that when it comes to Chinese I eat for two!

Some friends and I went to grab some Chinese yesterday. We initially wanted to have some Thai but that option was rejected after we saw that the Thai restaurant was bursting at the seams.

Anyway we went to the Jade Cottage in Hendon. Somewhat in the periphery but ultimately a lot better than expected.

We left the restaurant almost unable to walk. Fine I eat a lot but this group of friends is on another level. We got there at 9.30 and managed to stagger out past midnight. We were the only ones left really.

Here are some pics for you gossipy types, I’ve also uploaded some on our Facebook page
