Borough Market and North Clapham Tapas, London - 23rd July 2005

Nosher visits his Sis "dahn Lahndahn", meeting up by London Bridge tube station for a wander around Borough Market for some posh nosh and some incredibly strong cheese. Nosher nearly walks into esoteric TV legend Jonathan Meades, who was coming out of the Neals Yard Cheese shop at the time, and then spots him again purchasing fruit and veg. After food shopping, there's a stop-off at the Anchor on the banks of the Thames for a few beers, followed by a brief interlude in the new Globe Theatre, primarily for yet another wee stop, and then a quick walk across the once-wobbly Millenium Bridge with a look around the Tate Modern in the old Bankside power station. In the evening, we head out for a few beers and then some tapas in North Clapham at what seems like quite an authentic place, at least given its popularity with actual Spanish people of the area
