The Sunday Up Market
The Sunday Up Market is rapidly becoming Little Japan. Firstly, there are the hoards of Japanese fashion students. Secondly, there are the many little Japanese snacking tables that have turned up.
I forget now if I’ve already mentioned my affinity for Japanese pancakes–okonomiyaki to you. Tucked into the Up Market is one little stall that does a brisk business in cabbage and cheese pancakes, doused in mayonnaise. I know this might sound gross, but it’s actually quite nice. And quite cheap at £3.50 a pop, plus a quid for a green tea.
Wander around the food area of the market and you’ll see a guy selling octopus balls, a sushi table, and outside the market (at the entrance to the overflow space), there’s a yaki tori table.
How fun. Now if only I could say that in Japanese!
