London’s Oyster Spot

I like to walk about. There’s no mission, objective or goal. I just like to walk around places I never really get a chance to see. Last week, and for the last month even, I’ve been based in London Bridge so I used the opportunity to get lost in it and discover a few things. Although I don’t have a main focus on my blog, I’m thinking of posting things that interest me. My discoveries, my finds and my passions. I managed to find an Oyster Spot in Borough Market, London Bridge. For those who may not know, Borough Market is one of the biggest surviving food markets in London. You can find locally farmed fruits and vegetables, as well as cured meats, cheese etc.

I had eaten here last month, however I didn’t have my camera. But I knew I would be back soon! It’s called “Richard Haward’s Oyster.” There were fresh English grown oysters. It was just simple. And that’s what I liked. There were lemons, hot sauce, black pepper, shallots in red wine vinegar (I think), to compliment the oysters. The oyster is opened in front of you and the decoration of flavours is all up to you! I think the price range was decent. I got two small ones for £1 each as I was in a rush. But the price list is somewhere in the pictures below. You can get small, medium and large oysters. If you are in London, or from here, wanting to try something you’ve never tasted before, or craving oysters, pick up your oyster card and get an oyster! If you’re coming from the underground, follow the ‘Borough High Street’ exit.

His name was Daney. I asked him how may oysters he thinks he’s opened/prepared. He replied, “more than 750, 000..”

The scars in the palms of his hands told me he had many stories. ‘If I had spoken to him sooner’ I thought to myself, as I looked at the passing clock. ‘But I know there will be another time,’ I reassured myself as I rushed to get my train before rush hour!
