Billingsgate Fish Market

Every morning, while most of the Londoners are tucked away in their warm blankets, some people are heading to Trafalgar Way for the biggest and freshest fish market in the city, Billingsgate Market.

Still enveloped with thick fog and below zero degree celsius temperature, we flocked the venue in as early as 5 am to score wholesale prices of seafoods.

The long scour of fish stalls are filled with various choices such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, crabs, mussels, oysters, tilapia, milkfish, and many other uncommon fishes to an Asian like me, including sea brass, thomson, rohu, and hake fish to name a few. Despite the presence of many seafoods, the place is clean and it doesn’t smell.

After a few rounds here and there, we took home two cooler boxes filled with various kinds of seafoods and immediately cooked the crab and salmon belly. Even with conversion from Pounds to Philippine peso, that salmon belly at 5 Pounds per bag (worth about 2.5 kg) is really cheap! What a treat!
