Sometimes wandering around is the best way to discover hidden treasures.
Worst idea ever: apparently every single shop of the compound is closed on Sundays.
Anyway, it wasn’t time for losing heart! The sun shined across London so I decided to set out for Borough.
On and on and on she walked… until she arrived at the corner between Wild’s Rents and Long Lane. Then an Italian Deli appeared out of the blue.
The store is tiny and filled with italian speciality of any sort: pasta, sauces, olive oil, wine… However, in my humble opinion, the best part is the deli and cheese counter.I was astonished (well, I was hungry, too) and the shop looked so inviting that I decided to enter.
The guy behind the counter offered me a slice of the cold cut (it has pistachios inside!) and it was really delicious. I bought approx 80g for less than 2£. I ate with gusto all the slices once I left the delicatessen store.
It’s something that everyone should do at least once in a lifetime.
