One of the most eclectic and unique areas of London is Camden Town.  This area houses several different markets and a bunch of little botiques.  It was super reminiscent of Mong Kok in Hong Kong, with stalls selling basically the same merchandise (all from China by the way) but with a few unique and special stores sprinkled throughout.

The weekends are the best, but busiest, times to go because of all the food stalls around.  I love London markets because they are food havens, with everything and anything you could want.  Special to Camden is Chin Chin Labs, London’s first nitrogen ice cream shop.  Three flavors are featured, Valrhona chocolate, Madagascar vanilla, and a special flavor.  You then choose a sauce and topping to go along with your ice cream.

The ice cream is so smooth and creamy, and the chocolate especially rich.  The raspberry sauce complemented the chocolate perfectly and I cannot wait to go back and eat more!

For lunch I had some Turkish wrap, that was filled with chicken, spinach, and mozzarella.  It was grilled and surprisingly super flavorful.

Camden is full of quirkiness and fun, and is a must for any tourist or local!
