Tantalise those Taste Buds
Much more than a deli - the finest food available to man
Location: 38 Tavistock Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 7PB
Description: 'The Albion Emporium'...the exceptional Covent Garden establishment purveys products (being food and beverages) which are carefully harvested from The British Isles and those which, by long association with this ancient archipelago of the arcane and the eccentric, are considered to be quintessentially linked.
All items have been carefully selected for your carnal and spiritual satisfaction.
Okay Okay...'The Albion Emporium' is a reinvention and a rediscovery of an almost forgotten experience: the combination of good service with unique goods, in a retail palace replete with hundreds of authentic products available for purchase.
Food to die for accompanied by staff dressed in Olde Worlde costume - simply outstanding - go visit!
