What a great day! A perfect day apart from the weather, and one that makes me so happy to live so close to London.

In the morning we headed out to Borough Market, and what treats we have come home with!!!

ImageWe visited the best Spice shop (in my opinion)- Spice Mountain. I was worried as there had been a move around in the market and on a previous trip we couldn’t find it, but this time a success and goodies have been bought, as well as some mini bamboo skewers to make some groovy little kebabs with.

As well as spices we have got some sausages from The Ginger Pig, some pork & pistachio and some Lincolnshire, and some great Mayfield cheeses. We got to Borough market early in the morning which is such a good idea as you can actually get near the stalls, anytime after 10 and it is absolutely heaving, and it is so disappointing to get all that way and not get to easily see all the goodies on display.

For lunch we headed to Momo, just off Regent Street. We have been once before and have been planning a trip back ever since.

For starters Colin had a vegetable harira soup, lightly spiced and fragrant with preserved lemon. For me some prawns wrapped in K’taiffe, with an avocado purée and labneh. This was absolutely delicious, crispy from the pastry and beautifully presented.

ImageFor main course Colin had a mixed grill: there was some chicken, some lamb, and a really lovely marinated quail. I had a chicken tagline, gorgeously fragrant, with big hunks of chicken and potato, green olives and preserved lemons. Truly delicious.

ImageImageDespite being full we couldn’t turn down some desserts, washed down with a crisp glass of sauternes. For Colin a plate of mini chocolates, for me a plate of small traditional pastries.

ImageMomo is such a delight to all the senses. The décor is beautiful and the ambience spot on- you would never believe you were just off the hustle and bustle of Regent Street.

Now we are planning our next trip, and not leaving it so long!
