London Part 1: Borough Market


Borough Market

Bread Ahead Bakery

This was our first stop to seek out donuts. My husband is the self proclaimed Donut Hunter and he writes his own blog about his donut finds. Some people say you should start with desert and that’s what we did. Read more about it here


It is really hard to come by a bad grilled cheese sandwich. You can’t go wrong with melted cheese and bread! Years ago Brian and I had a whirlwind trip to London and Paris. Walking around Borough Market I had what they call a “toasted cheese” sandwich. This was unlike any grilled cheese I have ever had, and it just blew my mind! When we booked our trip my first request was getting the chance to eat another toast cheese sandwich at Borough market. I am currently wishing I had it here with me now!

Walking around the market I kept seeing signs for “salt beef.” I figured it was something I had try and I spotted a long line at Nana Fanny’s. Taking Anthony Bourdain’s advice I hopped on the line thinking it meant something good. I chose a hot salt beef on rye, English mustard, with sweet and sour pickles. I was instantly reminded of a pastrami sandwich, it was butter soft and salty. The pickles and the mustard were a perfect compliment.
