I think I found the best ribs in London! If you wander away from the touristy section of the Tower Bridge/ Bermondsey area, you will come across The Kings Arms, which offered up a smashing half portion of ribs. Read my review here: https://www.weekendnotes.co.uk/the-kings-arms-bermondsey/
I do love a food market. The most famous one in London is Borough Market in Southwark, which is open from Monday- Saturday. The market has stood on the site since the thirteenth century and is a big draw for tourists and Londoners alike.
The market is a foodie paradise. One tip I would give is to visit on an empty stomach to fully enjoy all that is available.
Borough Market offers a wide supply of delicacies and delights, including pastries, cheese (lots of cheese) and teas. And the fudge. Definitely try the various types of fudge that Whirld has to offer. It is amazing. Seriously.
The market is super busy so I’d recommend getting there early. However a trip there is worthwhile.
I came across Santo Remedio completely by accident, purely because I’ve walked by it a few times and thought it looked cosy. It was a happy accident though, as Santo Remedio has appeared on several lists of the best Mexican restaurants in London. I adore Mexican food so this is my idea of a good night.
Last night we gave it a try and actually managed to get a table (it’s been difficult in the past). Santo Remedio is beautifully lit and highly inviting. The decor is gorgeous as well.
So the food…every dish we ate was excellent, from the tacos to the enchiladas and the octopus (an interesting riff on standard Mexican food). The guacamole was divine.
There was only one dessert I could possibly have- churros! I’m a churros- fanatic, seriously. My friend ordered the banana bread, so that we got to try both. Both desserts were delicious.
Apparently this is the most authentic Mexican restaurant outside Mexico. Next time I want to try the hibiscus flower enchiladas.
