Camden Town is practically home. I go through it every day to and from work. I live close by. My friends once hosted a surprise birthday party for me at Gilgamesh and I was once bounced from the famous night club and restaurant Shaka Zulu. I was inspired to take Salsa lessons after visiting the Cuban restaurant and cocktail bar a few times. Many a night has been spent here, but I never ventured into the Camden market at day time until yesterday. With my rather intrusive DSLR, I joined the hordes of tourists in the market and for one day I saw what they saw in the Camden market.
The Marrakesh style souk of the Stables Market part of the market surprised me. In here there were all sorts – vintage clothing, exotic home furnishings, fashion accessories and vintage cameras.
Naturally I gravitated to the street food section. Scottish Venison, Peruvian food, Colombian street food, Argentina Stake and Polish cuisine were all available. If only I knew this existed on my door step!
In my basket:
Turkish wrap won the toss. I struck up a conversation with the stall owner. I informed her I was off to Istanbul Turkey for the second time in a couple of months. She excitedly recommended a few dishes I had to try out whilst there.
The gallery below shows my Turkish wrap being prepared. The wrap was half chicken and half beef shavings with vegetables and chill sauce.
