Ah British food…
Lamb & Yorkshire pudding – a classic Sunday lunch
At its best, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding (something I really do enjoy). At its typical, fried scampi & chips in a smoky pub, or perhaps a Wimpy Burger (virtually nonexistent these days).
Other regional delicacies include mushy peas, bubble and squeak (fried leftovers from a roast dinner), the less appealing sounding ‘spotted-dick’ (a dessert or pudding), and the iconic fried fish and chips.
The unofficial national dish of England is chicken tikka masala – a dish of distinctly South Asian roots.
All this can be washed down with a warm, flat pint of bitter beer. Yum.
Perfect duck magret (breast) at a reasonable price
Yet in our modern world, I will argue, the United Kingdom in general, and England more specifically has gone through a culinary revolution. It is now genuinely worth a trip just for the food.
