jn82’s Epic Adventure

Day 2 [31 Jan 09] – London

Posted in London by jn82 on February 1, 2009

All the lines which go into and out of Farringdon today were not in operation due to ongoing construction of the London underground system, so I had to take a slightly longer 10 minute walk to Angel to hop onto the tube. Met W around 12 noon and headed off to the Borough Market.

The market is a pretty interesting place with a lot of fresh produce, cooked food, cheese, dead animals and warmed alcohol, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Had a pub lunch before walking through the market proper, and consumed interesting “winter” alcoholic beverages such as hot mulled wine and hot cider.

Scallops, 3 for £4.50.


After the market, W and I headed back to Angel for an alcoholic beverage and to escape the near zero degree celcius cold, following which we met R and had coffee and cake at Ottolenghi.

Had dinner with W at this nice place at Bank called Coq d’Argent, which served a very reasonably priced three course meal for £19 only through a promotion with toptable.
