Borough Market is literally the greatest thing in London, imho. I know, big call. Probably exaggerating. Still - the food here is all amazing. I also love Kappacasein's amazing grilled cheese sandwiches. I don't know the name of the booze place, but this summer as well as the usual Pimms and Sangria, they were also selling this unreal French rose summer spritzer. Awesome.
