Okay, I post this with a bit of delay, but it's been busy these couple of days (shopping, but hey, it's sales!). So, last Saturday we went with BH to the Broadway Market a)because I have a thing about markets and b)I assured BH that there would be plenty of delicious food. Thus, off we go.
From a foodie's point of view, I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. We found everything we would need for a very promising meal, and of course things we would not find in our local supermarket.
|You've got to have bread. Always.|
|...and cheese of course.|
|We even found dolmades!|
|and Gigantes! (that's 'giant' beans cooked in |
a tomato based sauce with herbs and onions)
|I simply couldn't leave without a tub of my favourite olives.|
The tarragon and garlic ones are highly recommended!
If you have a sweet tooth you won't be disappointed:
Nor if you have a soft spot for Middle Eastern food:
|Four different types of baklawa!|
Now, concerning BH's favourite time of the day (lunchtime), we loved the bahn-mi from a stall selling Vietnamese food: I got one with the sirloin, and BH got a 'cha cha chicken' one (you can't really say no to a sandwich called cha cha, can you?). Unfortunately, we wolfed them down almost immediately and I didn't manage to take a proper photograph. However, while waiting, I did manage to take this picture (only because I wasn't eating at the time!).
However, if you're more on the vegetarian side, I loved this little stall with the delicious-looking veggie burgers:
Now, if for some unforeseen reason you're not into food, there are other cool stuff you can get:
|and my personal favourite: candles in mugs!|
The bottom line is, there's something for everyone, particularly if you're a foodie (and there are plenty of photos to prove this!). So I'd say give it a shot, you might find something you haven't tried out before, and bear in mind that the above it's just to give you a small taste. I assure you you'll find a lot more unique bits and pieces if you go yourself. For directions click here, and let me know what you think :)
