Lunch around Borough Market, London

• Konditor & Cooks
A competent egg sandwich, perked up with bacon. Soft but otherwise undistinguished malt bread.

• The Tasting Room
A firm cibatta with a filling of ordinary tomato, very thin slices of mozzerella that do not do justice to the texture of the cheese and basil.

• FuseBox
Lots of Thai basil and coconut milk fragrance on the green Thai chicken curry, and points for at least including slivers of red chilli for a shadow of heat. Obviously it should be a lot hotter spice-wise, but it doesn't look like the type of place that one expects Thai spiciness. However, the rice is undercooked and this tends toward one of the pricier lunch options.

• De Gustibus
Have a sandwich made to one's specifications here. Walnut bread was very good, the honey mustard chicken very tasty, with a more mellow than sharp mustard flavour. Dressed it with greens and tomatoes. Probably my favourite experience in the area so far. Will have to see if they hold up. They also have a stall inside the Market. And a nice choclate dipped brownie, good moistness and pleasant chocolate flavour.

• Hobbs
Deep flavour in the beef, basic horseradish. Reasonable bread. Very likable.

• Falafel stall in the Market (Fridays)
A tasty and warm falafel wrap. I think I'd get it with pickles next time (if I ever get back to it). The flourish of shredded carrots etc seem unnecessary but not too much of a distraction.

• Westcountry Venison
A solid grilled venison sausage, elevated by caramelized onions and the brightness of cranberry sauce.
