My parents came to visit this week and requested to see some of the street art in Shoreditch. Of course I obliged to such a surprising and uncharacteristic request by a couple of people in their 60s.

Broadway Market in Shoreditch

Broadway Market is definitely one of my favourite London markets. It takes place every Saturday in Shoreditch, just south of London Fields Park.

I went there a few weeks ago with some friends to taste the amazing foods and take photos.

This salmon was absolutely delicious. So soft and creamy! And the sourdough bread was very fresh.

There was a cute Japanese street food stand. Unfortunately I had already tasted too many of the other foods by the time I got to it.

While we’re talking about cute – here’s a woman tickling a dog’s belly.

The fruit and vegetable guys…

…and look at that! A German bratwurst stand. I have noticed that this stand is never very busy, so I feel a little sorry for them. But they’re still there, so business can’t be too bad.

Some of the stands sell crafts, jewellery and vintage clothing.

Bombay breakfast at Dishoom

I do like a good breakfast and I recently had a couple of amazing breakfasts at Dishoom in Shoreditch. Dishoom describes itself as a “Bombay Café”. Persian and Iranian immigrants opened these cafés in Mumbai in the 19th century. It’s kind of a mix between Indian and Iranian food, I guess.

Indian food for breakfast, you may ask? Yes! Dishoom has developed a breakfast menu that seems exotic to your average European palate but it tastes divine.

The first time I went I had the bacon naan roll with chili tomato jam, cream cheese and herbs. The second time I had the Akuri, spicy scrambled eggs with fire toast. A coffee and a breakfast lassi to wash it down.

Next time I might have to go for the full Bombay breakfast.
