If there’s one thing I love more than Fashion, it’s Travel. Nothing beats the ability to sample food, culture and sights other than the ones we’re used to.

At one point of time a couple years back, I was visiting London so much that I couldn’t keep track. One of the places that really stood out was Borough market although I haven’t had the chance to blog about it.

This place is not quite like any place that I’ll ever see in Singapore. They sell food yes, but these grocers are quite possibly the gathering of the best that London has to offer. I got to sample red wine cheese (true story), eat freshly shucked oysters and drink coffee which I could clearly distinguish the taste between the coffee and the milk.

Tourists like myself are in for a visual feast with their produce proudly laid out.

I was so overwhelmed in Neal’s Yard Dairy. The variety of cheeses here had me in the shop for quite a while to pick some cheeses to buy for a party that I was going to that weekend. I settled on a Apleby’s double Gloucester.

I LOVE fresh oysters. This guy shucks my oysters fresh, I think he found our accents intriguing and asked us where we were from. Nice chap.

It doesn’t get any fresher than this unless you catch your own oysters and shuck them yourself.

Brindisa BBQ chorizo sausages. The ingredients are so simple but so so good. I always made sure that I have one when I’m here.

If you’re making your way there, do note that Borough Market is only open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays! You can expect a huge crowd here on Saturdays from 10am onwards. I think you could Google for more information regarding how to get there and the operating hours. I would recommend just taking the Northern line to London Bridge and walking there.
