  • Typical rainy, windy day here in London.

  • Is it weird I love weather like this?

  • Anyway, my first full day here and I thought I start off with some street food

  • at one of the oldest markets in the world

  • Let's go

  • I'm here at the Borough Market which is some shape or form has been around for over a 1,000 years

  • I know this place is a little tourist-y but I also feel like is one of those places where you gotta visit

  • when you're in London and

  • right now i'm starving, it's got food, let's go eat.

  • there are a ton of food stalls here

  • the first thing i want since i'm in London

  • let's get a meat pie!

  • there's steak pie, bacon pie, chicken pie, ve-vegan pie

  • we'll stay away from that

  • pipin' hot gravy over mash potatoes

  • and this pie

  • my first meat pie in the UK

  • this thing apparently has everything in here

  • beef, bacon and pork

  • wonderful flaky crust

  • man, i'm in

  • oh this pie is ridiculously crusty

  • oh my gosh

  • that is a lot of filling

  • a lot of meat inside that pie crust

  • okay

  • this is gonna get really messy

  • because i'm tryna do this with one hand

  • but let's try this out

  • i totally just ruined the crust but let me just take a big o' bite here

  • ah

  • that first bite

  • that is exactly what i needed on a day like this

  • crust, crunchy and flaky

  • this pie

  • is just so

  • immensely meaty

  • mash potato is wonderfully creamy

  • maybe i shouldn't have started with this

  • because this is a really substantial meal

  • this is such a rustic dish

  • meat and potatoes and pie crust

  • but if you want a hearty, meaty, make you feel good

  • kind of dish especially on a cold, rainy day

  • don't have to look further than this

  • i don't typically do this but i got the vegan version as well

  • because this is the one that they won a bunch of awards for

  • and i got it without the gravy so i can really taste the crust

  • it's carrots, tomatoes, onions and all sorts of other veggies

  • and it's cooked in a red wine sauce

  • i think what make this so good

  • and it's a big part of it

  • is the buttery crust

  • and without the gravy dripping all over it

  • you can really tell how flaky and crispy and buttery the crust is

  • i don't know if you guys can hear the crunch but

  • you can put most things inside this crust and it would taste good

  • the filling

  • very tomato-y

  • very robust flavours

  • i think in terms of just pure flavours

  • this is better than the meat pie

  • can't believe i'm saying that right now

  • and it has lots to do with the gravy and sauce these veggies are cooked in

  • just so thick and flavourful and fragrant

  • that wrapped in a crispy pie crust

  • i can see why this is a winner

  • still wish there's some meat in here though

  • oh my god

  • check it out

  • roast hog

  • and

  • whoa

  • that is a whole roast hog

  • i can smell the spices cooking on this thing from here

  • this looks amazing

  • what i love about the market is there so much free samples too

  • you get to try the food and they're cooking up sausages here

  • wow, thank you

  • thank you

  • that be great

  • it's so charred on the outside, mm

  • this is the pork wrap and

  • wow, there's a lot of spices in this

  • i see a bunch of cumin coriander

  • and the pork is just ridiculously juicy and tender

  • i can tell just by squeezing on my hands!

  • and as you saw they put a lot of pork in this wrap

  • let's get a big o' bite

  • i adore this

  • wow

  • oh man

  • this is perfect in every single way

  • where you been all my life?

  • pork

  • extremely, extremely tender

  • and so so juicy

  • i mean usually when you see whole roast pig

  • what your biggest fear is that it's dry

  • not this

  • i mean this pork is moist as this country's weather

  • and what's so incredibly genius of them is that

  • they wrap some grains around the meat which not only prevented it from making the wrap all soggy

  • it provides that needed crunch

  • that sweet veggie relief from all the fat from the pork

  • my mouth is just filled

  • with juice from the pork

  • also there's some sort of apple sauce in here as well

  • that gives a little sweet, slightly tingy flavour

  • this thing is seemingly like a

  • like a

  • simple pork wrap but there's so much going on

  • and that's all on top on the deliciously roasted juicy pork

  • oh my gosh

  • oh

  • uh

  • speaking of uh

  • wet and moist

  • uh let's get out of here

  • ooh jeez

  • i'm not scared of the rain

  • i was just really tryna save this sandwich

  • next thing i got. scorched egg

  • this thing got cold really quickly

  • made with chorizo sausages on the outside

  • little salt and pepper

  • nice colouring in the egg. it's just

  • a little dry

  • it's actually pretty good

  • spicy, egg yolk's creamy

  • i think it would be much better if it was pipin' hot

  • love this spicy chorizo

  • love the crunch on the outside

  • also don't sleep on the baker's market

  • and this place suppose to have amazing donuts

  • ahh this is going to be awesome

  • uh homemade jam

  • and then the caramel please

  • i don't think i've been this excited about a donut for a long time

  • honey comb on this one

  • this is a jam

  • this is the caramel

  • and this is the combo

  • i'm starting with the combo

  • just from holding this in my hand, i know this is going to be a really airy doughnut

  • it feels so light

  • the cream inside tastes absolutely gorgeous

  • this one

  • can taste the different types of spices

  • the cream is soo cool

  • and not overly milky

  • and not overwhelming at all

  • it's almost like it's almost refreshing

  • the doughnut

  • you can see how airy this is

  • and i didn't even know there still was something inside this

  • the whole thing feels so incredibly light

  • and that goes to show how light the cream is

  • it's like angels made this and they floated down from heaven

  • there's rum raisin inside this as well

  • this is filled with homemade jam and this one feels like it has a little weight to it

  • none of that angelic cream inside of this doughnut

  • sweet and tangy and fresh raspberry jam

  • but i gotta say

  • definitely not as good as the cream

  • the caramel

  • these are probably the only doughnuts in the world that

  • the more you eat,

  • the lighter you become

  • the caramel cream inside

  • i just want someone to IV me up and pump this thing directly into my blood stream

  • that's my favourite

  • so obviously guys, if you're over here, this is the donut shop that you do not want to miss

  • get it?

  • do-not, donut

  • i'm sorry, it's all the sugar

  • this store is serving duck confit

  • this is my duck sandwich and it's just overflowing

  • never had a duck sandwich before but look how massive this thing is

  • there's a lot of bones in here!

  • the flavour is really good

  • but it's a bit on the dry side

  • let me try to bite from the middle

  • it's better

  • i like the chunni

  • again the overall flavour is on point

  • maybe if i got it in the beginning of the day would have been better

  • but right now, a lil dry

  • kind of disappointing

  • i had really really high hopes for this

  • i mean it looked really really good and i was really hoping for a greasy fatty bite of duck and

  • it just didn't happen here

  • i'm smelling something super cheesy

  • and look what i found

  • is that not the most beautiful bubbles you have ever seen

  • gotta eat this quick

  • this is far more cheese than the little club place that i went to in Paris

  • cheese with the rind over potatoes, salt and pepper, some pickles

  • that is creamy

  • potatoes seems to have a slightly grilled flavour

  • i just want to be hugged by that cheese

  • perfectly paired with the pickles

  • that just gets your mouth ready for another cheesy bite

  • quality of this cheese too

  • really fragrant, incredibly milky

  • perfect amount of saltiness

  • with these potatoes

  • this is actually a great balance plate of food

  • just when you think it's getting a little too cheesy,

  • even though it's not possible

  • the pickles brings you right back

  • there's some bites where the cheese a little toasty

  • god, i love burnt cheese

  • there are also a lot of stalls here obviously for the famous salsa beef sandwich

  • but i already got a place somewhere to go to for that so

  • im not going to have it here

  • i've been here about 2 hours now

  • and i feel like i've been pretty much eating non-stop

  • but how come i still feel so hungry

  • feel like i haven't been eating anything

  • i mean normally this is a good problem to have

  • but i spent a lot on food already

  • also

  • i love this market

  • there's ton of food stalls like fresh produce

  • and get that compared to other markets

  • it's pretty pricey but the food

  • most of what i had

  • extremely delicious

  • especially that pork sandwich and that doughnut

  • and i love the whole food vibe here

  • it seems like everybody's coming here for the sole purpose of eating

  • and everyone i met from the people eating here to the vendors are super super nice

  • it's almost like having a big meal with extended family

  • and that's the thing with food

  • it just makes you feel better, happier, is a great uniter of people

  • and guys, i'll list all the food stalls i went to in my description box below

  • thank you all so much for watching

  • until we eat again, see ya later

  • hi. it's 3.30 in the morning

  • and extremely jet lagged

  • and also

  • i-i can't help but feel like today is just incomplete

  • because i need that soft beef sandwich and

  • i know exactly where to go for it.

  • yeah, even at 3.30 in the morning

  • and here it is, beigel shop

  • over a 100 years old

  • open 24 hours a day

  • serving hot salt beef

  • this country definitely doesn't skimp on the meat in any of their sandwiches

  • here it is, beigel on a mountain of salted beef in the middle

  • couple pieces of pickles, some mustard

  • this is better than i thought

  • ridiculously juicy pastrami

  • not overly salty at all, perfectly seasoned

  • the pickles a little sweet and the crunchy texture really stand out

  • when you're biting into this tender, juicy piece of beef

  • this is the perfect combination of sweet, savoury and a little bite from the mustard

  • usually,

  • when i have a pastrami sandwich in the states, it's a little
