Sunday at Spitalfields Market
Per Hurry’s (our food tour guide) recommendation, I persuaded Matt to return to Spitalfield area again on the next day after the food tour. Spitalfield is in East End and has an amazing food scene. But it’s also a home to one of the best markets in London on Sundays.
I was in the mood for shopping! The initial intent was to buy souvenirs for other people, but it was a lie. I wanted to buy stuff for myself.
First, breakfast though! I wanted to eat at St John again. But apparently (it’s not on Google) they close the kitchen for breakfast at noon and reopen for lunch at 12:30pm. We got there at 11:50am and they turned us down!
To say I was upset would be an understatement. I was hangry! Somehow we have been having bad luck with food in London. OK… there was another supposedly good place (per someone’s recommendation the day before) nearby: Blixen. And we managed to get a table
That was quite a breakfast! Everything breakfast with fresh juice.
Refueled and determined we went to explore the market.
How do we look?
I didn’t take many other pictures because people watching was way more entertaining.
We did buy some souvenirs though… For ourselves 🙂
I got myself a hat. You’ll see more of it. Also each of us got a pair of shoes. I need a picture of that.
By the way, that’s us riding a double decker bus on the way to Tate Modern. These buses are ubiquitous and very convenient to use as public transport.
