A Trip to Brick Lane

Time November 27th, 2013 in College Study Abroad | No Comments by

London has many wonderful markets that are especially wonderful on the weekends.  Not far from Mile End are two of these markets, Brick Lane and Spitafield Market.  This past Sunday I went with a couple friends to Brick Lane.

There are tons of clothing and jewelry vendors along the street and the most amazing smelling food.  We had researched online the day before and had found a Mexican Restaurant called “Loco Mojito” on Brick Lane.  This was the first time I had had Mexican food since August and it was amazing.  I got an apple mojito to start and then a chicken enchilada for my main plate.  The enchilada was so good and the rice was great as well.  I was definitely happy we had decided to come.

After lunch we strolled along the streets for a while.  Some of my friends ordered oreo hot chocolate from one of the street vendors.  I decided on a vanilla churro, which was so good.  I’m definitely coming back again!

This next weekend we’re planning on going to Borough market, which I’ve heard is famous for it’s wonderful food.  If there’s one thing I could tell you it’s definitely check out the markets while you’re in London.  You’ll find some of the most unique items and can stock up on fruit, vegetables, and other various food items.
