MyPictureSunday#9 - London Streetfood! (WARNING: This post will make you hungry) + MyPictureDay Round #2

in photography •  last year

Welcome my dear Steemian friends to another episode of MyPictureSunday!

Are you excited? I hope so cause I am! Last week we started with a new photography contest called MyPictureDay. A contest in which you can show us your photography skills and earn some SteemPower! A lot of Steemians participated and we have some winners! But more on that later - at the bottom of this post.

What makes you happy?

One thing I can certainly answer to this question is food! Whether it's the sweet hot fruit curry, grilled chicken steaks, fresh crispy salad or sweet fruits - I love food!

Walking through the city of London I came a cross a street food market. I'm not quite sure where you like to have dinner but let me tell you one thing: the best food I had were on these kind of street markets. Since my journey in Thailand I fell in love with street food. It's the relaxed atmosphere, fresh cooked food, the fact that they prepare the meal in front of you and the diversity from many different international delicacies.

It took me at least 10 minutes (it felt more like 10 hours) to decide what I want to eat. Everything looked tasty and smelled deliciously. At first I thought about getting a wrap as in these pictures

They were right, they served meal best! This is what I finally had

A box with some spicy chicken curry, Sambosa, herbs and salad! I was so happy and it made my mouth water. Really have to recommend you to try it.

After dinner I was exhausted and wanted to relax, perhaps drink a tea. We walked to China Town and watched the beauty of these buildings at night. I love green tea! That's what I really need to add.

lol! Priceless comment


lol! I'd give up my virginity for one those foods :P


I would just suggest spending a couple of pounds instead. You could get a lot more for virginity from a Saudi Prince.




Glad you laughed. haha, You picked up a new follower. Welcome to Steemit.


I am vegan when i am not eating meat ha ha

I moved from London 4 years ago to Brighton, I am just about to move to Shropshire. I have just read your blog and for the fist time in 4 years do I feel home sick for London. I guess it's only 2 and a half hours away. Awww man! All my old haunts. It was lovely to see being a huge foodie 🕉


Comments like these make me happy since I can reach to you, call emotions. Thanks for your feedback and may you visit London soon!


Bless you! You are more than welcome, you will have to visit Shropshire, give me a shout!🕉😍


London was London

Definetly taking place in this contest

Here is my article:



I can't resist "A box with some spicy chicken curry," Great post, great contest idea. I have some mountain landscapes that just might be worthy.


I want to see them! :D


I was just contemplating what to eat b4 I saw your post brother, now I'm more hungry then ever. That whole market looks bomb I'm guessing everything made fresh right there. But that spicy chicken curry Sambosa herbs looks delicious & filling. I definitely want to try it thanks for the post 🙏


I hope you had some good food at least! I love Sambosa! Did you try that?


Naw never in life I'm going to try it in my city if I can't I may have to fly out there sometime. What kinda food is it exactly like West Indian so I know where to look?

@timsaid yeah dude m totaly hungry now at 3:00 am walking on my boulvard of broken dreams with empty pocket ur one vote will not make me rich but it will help to kill my hunger 🖖🍔


I'm so sorry! Didn't you read the title?


Nothing can stop a food lover bro

Im indeed very hungry..
I have always been fascinated with food and i just dont know why.
I love cooking them too and love to try out new receipes from time to time
But this is exceptional and mind blowing💙


I should invite you to Florence when I'll be back then :p and take you into a food trip around the best places there. Pretty sure you like Italian food.
Just wrote about the best place to have a fast and great meal there. And now watching your pics too, I have to say I'm damn hungry
Have a good day man ;)

Man, I am hungry already. You know exactly how to make someone crave for more!! Tim Said in other words: Go plunder the fridge!

Ah, I saw Chilli Paneer and Samosa in the pics. It's surprising that these Indian foods are also available here. I thought only curry was available!!!

makes me hungry

Your pictures of the food market really caught the wnergy in the area. The composition of the pictures was also quite fantastic. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

what a powerful and healthy food , i like very much to eat same like food thanks dear

Some great photos your got there check out my content I'm new to steemit trying to earn new followers check it out I think you will enjoy it. @babyfist Thanks for the follows and support!

Looks like some amazing food @timsaid! And a great contest for the community! I'd love to submit something :)

Thought London was too posh to have such streetfood. Thailand and India is my best bet for yummy sinful treats

In the mids of viewing all those tastefully looking pics I had to get up and eat ;-)

I feel like I lost out now that I read this. I went to London last summer and walked all over the place, only seeing ice cream stands and trucks (one called SNOG, too I think). The restaurants were nice, but man, I love street food! Thanks for the post.

London is a very beautiful city, while reading your writing, I am very interested in the food you send, because I really like the type of curry dishes let alone goat curry like in aceh. I almost daily ate the goat curry served in front of my coffee shop. In Aceh @timsaid

Before leaving for London everyone told me "the food sucks" but I will totally show them this post when I head back and watch them drool. Cheers, m8!


A relative in the US refused to visit London because the food here is not something she fancies lolsss

I love this idea. I recently did another challenge of portraits. Check out my blog post and see if you like any of those. I'm going to scope out the area and take some pictures and watch out for my next few post. Really excited about this contest thank you for hosting it!
