Last Wednesday morning, I saw more than just Shanghai dumplings on a lunch date with Grandma and mum. Walking from Queens Plaza to Queen St Mall, Bridge End, I came across a food market that very much resembled London's Borough Market - paellas, colourful produce, reds and greens, honey, French treats (macarons!), blooming flowers, fresh air, blue sky and a river right in front.
It's always such pleasure to visit London's most renowned food market that's been running vibrantly for the past centuries. Arriving early (approximately 10am) to this friendly food community meant fresh food and produce, no queue, and less crowds. The top-notch quality and extensive variety of (get ready now...) freshly baked breads, cakes, pastries, hog roasts, coffee beans, chocolates, smoothies, paellas, fruits, vegetables, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy, cereals, and much more(!) available at the hundreds of stalls you spot one after another will make your eyes glisten and mouth drool within seconds!
Oh by the way, it probably doesn't help that there are free taste-testers everywhere!
One of the entrances into heaven for all food-lovers out there!
Perfect aromatic latte for Saturday morning.
Big chunks of olives in the bread. Yummy!!!
Tried some free cheese taste-testers. For the first time in my life I ate 36 months old cheese. I admit I've not reached the level to understand quality cheese yet...
The hazelnut and almond brownie caught my eye. But I didn't buy one! Definite regret.
The last time I came to Borough Market I had a toffee cheesecake. This time I went for a classic eclair. Should stop getting attracted to the cake stall haha.
French pastry delights! Loved all the different colours and textures!
They offered free taste-testers at this chocolate stall. The chocolate not only melted itself in my mouth - it also melted my heart. *cheeky wink*
Berries are my all time favourites! So many colourful punnets everywhere! Made my heart skip a beat...hehehe.
And so I left with a very full tummy. Borough Market trip success! *BIG SATISFYING SMILE!*
