My London Hood: Mercato Metropolitano in Southwark, London



Okay, I'm now looking at south of the river...London joke as I keep saying. Work went for leaving do meal and drinks at Mercato Metropolitano, the Newington Causeway. This is trendy space - yes, literally a huge space with food stalls, benches and tables, a brewery and a cinema/movie theatre.



It's feels like a new age, sustainable place for the cool people to hang out, with cool and exotic street food. A bit like a low rent Borough Market, but more exclusive in a way.



The food is reasonable for street food well basically the same old £5.00 to about £10.00 and there are lots of different kinds of typical street food, so Turkish, Thai, Italian, Greek, English, West Indian, East Indian etc...the usual suspects.


I had a Vietnamese summer roll which is basically rice noodles wrap with a vegetable or meat filling. It was okay. I just wanted something light to eat rather than heavy. I think I'd already had a big breakfast and there was lots of cake at work, so I'd filled on that.


The others opted for curry, and pizza.



It wasn't really easy asking if I could take pictures of the food without telling my colleagues I was blogging, otherwise I'd just seem weird taking pictures of food.



I think that is a tomato one.



It was a pleasant day as the sun came out to shine so after a while we went outside. They have a big outdoor seating area.  Given they are regenerating the entire area, and possibly may opt to build more flats on the spot, I'm not sure how long this place would last. Who knows? Unless the Mercato Metropolitano owns the land or has leased it for the long term.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
