Food Adventure at Borough Market

Last weekend James and I went to a food market in London called Borough Market.
The first thing we got was raclette, which is a Swiss speciality, it's basically potato with a special grilled cheese and cornichons.
James waiting in line with his ticket for the raclette.
Next we went to a stand with oysters, both James and I absolutely love oysters!
So we got one each of the biggest ones...animated gif maker

Then we looked at some beautiful meringues and macaroons...
but I decided to eat a huge German hot dog instead, delish!
There were amazing fish stalls...
but we bought something else that I had never tried before, which I'll show later on in the post!
This guy had the best cheese, we bought Camembert and blue cheese from him.
We also bought a box of oysters to take home, the oyster guy was so awesome, he chucked in extra oysters, a whole lemon and he even gave us some of his shallot vinegar to take away!

We had seven oysters each, with a really nice sourdough bread on the side, plus white wine of course!

Then it was time for the surprise main course - ostrich!
I'm quietly wondering what ostrich will be like...
delicious, it turns out!
Finally we had the wonderful cheeses with pear, crackers and quince jelly, best dinner ever!

WOW that's a lot of good food in one post! I've never tried oysters...not sure I ever will :/ But the ostrich looks delicious! I've had ostrich jerky before and it was pretty good. Great photos of all your food adventures!
