One Afternoon in Camden

couple of weeks ago I went with my parents to visit my eldest brother where he lives in London. He's only lived there for around 6 months now and this is the first time (and definitely not the last) we actually visited him. One thing about my family is we love food, especially my dad, brother, and I who love to try out different types of food from varies countries.  
So where do  you go for food? My brother and I go no other than Camden. Now I have been to Camden many times and love it more each time I go. For my parent this was their first time in around 20 years and they really enjoyed it! First we headed straight for the food markets, now anyone that has been will know there are a couple of markets in Camden, but my absolute favourite is on the left just in front of the Camden lock.
Here there was a large range of food from, Spanish, Russian, Jamaican , Polish, British, American, Argentinian, Indian, even Coffies, wine, desert, and so so many more
When it came to choosing food I was tempted by the amazing smell of the Jerk chicken wrap, but ended up going for a pulled pork burger in Jack Daniels sauce. My, oh my, I can't even describe how amazingly delicious the food is here. I know there are other food stalls the other side of this building in the back consisting of Chinese, Italian, and Mexican food, but I always seem to find the best gems in this part of the woods. 
Just before leaving this area I notices this little Dutch Pancake stand and if you ever go to Camden please make sure you visit this little booth. I can even describe how amazing these mini pancakes were, and I find myself even now constantly craving them (though I am hoping this is an easy thing to do.) you can choose from 4 different sauces lemon, Nutella, chocolate, and syrup and aS for toppings you can choose strawberries, bananas, and whipped cream. 
By the time our mini pancakes were done there was a steadily growing que behind us and also onlookers. I ended up splitting 15 of these bad boys with my brother which was no challenge. 
After leaving Camden we headed back to my brothers place to pick up his car and drive 5 minutes down the road of the Alexander Palace instead of walking now it was raining. I had no idea this place even existed and because of its beautiful view I have made a promise to myself to go back in the summer when the weather is bright and the view is clear. 
Alexander palace sits on top of a hill with a breathtaking view of London. Sadly as it was raining and extremely cloudy we couldn't see too much, and also pictures weren't as clear. None the less this was a memory I wouldn't forget, seeing London from this view created a peaceful twist on the busy, hectic reality. Though  my view wasn't completely clear you could see most of London.
