Borough market is a tourist trap after 9.30 on a Saturday morning. But it's still worth a vist for food and drink that's a bit different. This morning I braved the hoardes of tourists to pick up some Belgian beers, a wild mushroom pie (for me); chorizo pie (for blokey); sausages made from animal's parts I didn't even know existed and some farmer's market cheese mixed with ginger. Most wonderfully of all, I bought some Portuguese pastel de nata. It's the first time I've seen them outside of Portugal, where you can scoff them for a half a euro each. Needless to say, Borough Market charges more.
