Borough Market = mushroom pate
When I find something I love I marry it. Seriously. Of course I'm not talking people here I'm talking food. For example, when I find myself in Philadelphia I don't like to leave without Bequet's sea salt caramels. When I'm at Central Market in Lancaster I always have a peanut butter long john from the Amish man at the corner. I have favorite lunch time and dinner time meals at almost every restaurant I've been to more than once. So, in the event that the first thing I try at a restaurant I fall in love with you will have a terrible time trying to convince me I want something else. Perhaps that's why I like you all so much....you share things. In any event, the first time I went to Borough Market ago I happened across a little stand called Pate Moi. It was just a small stand, an unassuming guy and free samples. Heaven. I chose the worst most chaotic day to visit this London institution but as soon as I tasted this pate it was love. I don't think I've been back to the market without buying some. There are many ways one can eat this pate but the absolute best is on freshly baked baguette. If you come to London we will definitely indulge ourselves. There's also a little English cheese stand right beside it....but I'll save that description for another day.
