Bakery

Bread, baguettes, cakes, cookies, pastry. The traditional food for European people. It has lots and lots of history and they are still eating now. There are too many types of bread that I still can't recognise them all.

Baguettes, Croissants...
Tarts, cakes, etc...
Oat cookies
Traditional Gingerbread man
If not mistaken, the brown bread with square on is call sour dough.


Cheese

CHEESE~~~!!!!! It is so so popular here that it has tonnes of cheese available in too many sizes and varieties. I really am not an expert in cheese so I just try to capture some of the special ones. I just know that some of them like blue cheese smells very strong and other cheese... I have to no idea... there are cheese tasting at nearly every cheese stall so I tried some. Not bad at all but it is really not cheap.
Blue Cheese?? Is that Fungus??
Goats cheese, for goat milk lovers...
What kind of cheese is that?
What do you think of the price?

This thing here, is one of the new stuff that I know only after visiting Borough Market. That 2 yellow thing is cheese while the grey metal machine is something like a stove, it melts the cheese from the top. When the cheese melts, they scrap it off and spread it on either bread or potatoes... Trust me, it taste really really nice. People are queuing up for it... again... not cheap. 1 portion of toast cost £3 which is so small that you can finish in 3 mouthful. Potatoes and pickles portion will be £4.

Seafood

Seafood, a must for a market. It is exotic usually but you can find cheaper seafood here as well depending on your budget. Alive or dead, they all have.


There we have, clams. They open it and customers just grab it straight away, eaten raw with some lemon juice on it. Many Asians eating though. When I was there, a Hong Kong family was there eating as the clams were opened up. I really lost count of how many they eat but in the end they pay £25 for the 'meal'.Slurrrrrrpppppp......................

Look at these lovely fishes and prawns.... mouth watering.....
XXL Madagascar prawns.... £39.60 per kg... maybe 2 prawns per kg?
Sea Urchins...

Sweets

British people loves sweets and desserts. Their chocolates and sweets are so sweet that you will choke by it.
Chocolate truffles stall....

Cranberry, quite famous around. It sells sweets and dried fruits and nuts... Everything you can think of...


Specialties - Salt

What can I say... Salty!!! Even salt has so many varieties and mixtures... I wonder how they use them.... it's not cheap....
Normal French sea salt....
with herbes de provence...
with seaweed....
with hot spices....?

....and with Oregano and wine???? my goodness.... salt with wine....

Ostrich....


There is 1 stall which is specialized in Ostrich. As under the meat category, I already introduced Ostrich meat... and here.... Ostrich Feather Dusters!! £6.95 for one!! I wonder who's gonna buy and use it.... that price...
and this!! What for??? £14.30!!!!
Ostrich Grill..... Doesn't really taste interesting though... £4.. damn...

Well, that is all about Borough Market... A very interesting place to visit.
