Borough Market in London – What You Should Eat | London Street Food Tour!
There are many famous things to do in London, but if you’re a food lover like I am, one of the best choices you can make is to take a trip to the historical Borough Market. The market is one of the most well-known in all of London. The history goes way back, and it was formerly a place where people came and gathered to trade and sell their fresh produce. For many years it was very informal and without structure. But the official Borough Market was established in 1885, the place that we can visit today.
The best things to do as soon as you arrive to Borough Market is to take a leisurely stroll around and see what is available for you to eat – there are too many things to eat in one visit, so it’s important that you choose wisely, and decide what you want to eat. Some of the most famous things include the salt beef sandwich, the grilled cheese sandwich, the duck confit sandwich, chorizo, and many other delicious things. But along with cooked food, there’s also a range of cured meats and wonderful cheeses. I also really enjoyed the fresh produce, which included a nice variety of mushrooms and beautiful heirloom tomatoes.
