The London Notebook – Street Food

Welcome to a brand new Feature on the Phoenix Remix! One thing we really enjoy writing about is Travel and we have decided to expand on the writing we are doing about the topic! Whilst we are still keeping in the tradition of making our Tuesday Lunchtime articles inspired by a book it is also going to welcome Travel Tuesdays!

I have lived in London the majority of my life and it is a city that I have always been fascinated by because it doesn’t matter how many time you visit, you see something new.

Our brand new article is inspired by questions from a book called London Journal by Paperchase and each week we will look at different areas and topics about London! So, I hope you enjoy and lets kick things off!

London Quote of the Week

London is a modern Babylon

This Weeks Topic: Street Food

If there is one thing that is a vital element of making London the thriving city that it is, then that is the street food on offer. There are so many wonderful places in the Capital to find street food – from Camden, to Islington, Shoreditch and the City of London just to name a few. I have eaten at just some of the stools but today we are focussing on the actual markets that I have enjoyed food at. Here is a few of them but I really recommend checking other areas out as well.

Borough Market

I love Borough Market, I have been here the most of all the food markets but it doesn’t matter how many times that I visit it, there is always something new to see. I love the fresh produce and seeing the lines around the block for the bakery products. It is a fascinating place to people watch and take it all in.

Spitalfields Market

This is a great food market with so many great food options on offer. One of the best things is that I loved when I visited was the Jerk Chicken. It was so tasty and I have been more then once. The market is always bustling with a lot going on too.


It’s probably not the most obvious choice for a food market but I have to add it as I go there a lot more then the others. It has some great food stalls and I have had some great food there as well.
