Eating Around London: Borough Market



I have been sorting out my archive from the last year.  I do edit and retouch images after any shoot or project, but sometimes it's a big challenge to sort through so many images at once and I can't believe it's been already 15 months since we took the trip!   


I made a short trip to London to attend the opening reception of the Food Photographer of the Year last April.   The trip was packed with planned and unplanned visits to all the places we wanted to eat at mostly.  I've been to London 5-6 times over the last 10+years.  I adore the city.  It really is a charming place.  I feel very comfortable, happy and inspired.  I love ll the parks just pop us all around the city to just sit and breeze.  I used to love watching people over a cheap cup of tea and eat greasy deep dried street food.  It's amazing how the food scene has completely changed and took over the city in the past 10 years.  

I've never visited Borough Market before in my past visits in London, but it seemed like the right time to finally make a visit for the occasion.  It was slightly more touristic than I expected. Nevertheless it was fun and interesting to see all the great products like baked goods, cheese, meat, seafood, chocolate, etc.  We tried some tasty food like parrilla and sausages and they were delicious.  We talked to some of the cheese makers and I was delighted to see how most of them are just excited to talk about their cheeses. 

We walked around the market for a couple of hours, stopped by at Monmouth Coffee for a little break.   I love how they just out a bunch of baguettes and jars of jams on the table and people just help themselves (not free).  I have never seen something cool like that before.  I wish there were a place in Seattle like this rustic and cozy ; (

Enjoy browsing through some of the snap shots.  I'll be making more posts with images from London  here and there when the mood strikes!

Another passionate producer who makes his own mushroom paste.  We bought one and it was heavenly.

Hello hanesome!


This paella tasted as good as its looks.

A cool way to welcome people in.

Lovely.

Monmouth Coffee.

It's not for sampling, but a cool way to serve anyway. 

Yeah, this cup of cappuccino. went right down.

Monmouth at Borough Market felt cheeky and I like that.
