Market Street in Napoli

Ahh…Napoli, i.e. Naples doesn’t care what you think!

It has been awhile since I wrote a food post and after a month in England, I think it is about time. There are those who would have you believe that English food sucks, and they’re kinda right to a point; but the ever growing number of Michelin stars points in the other direction. However, I can’t afford to eat …
