Very sad that my time in London came to an end so quickly. It is a super awesome city and I’m definitely going back in the future.
Before we went to the UK, many warned us that British food wasn’t very good. Granted I didn’t have much “traditional” British food, but pretty much everything I had was really delicious. Here are some foodie highlights.
Pret a Manger quickly became one of my fave places to eat, well buy from since it costs more to eat in. The first time I saw their sign, I thought they sold horse stuff. XD In my defense, there are quite a few horse guards in London.
Besides their delicious yet nutritious food, which includes a wide array of salad and sandwiches, they also have a great store philosophy.
I’ve been a huge fan of subway forever, and never get tired of eating their sandwiches. There are slightly less sandwich choices in Taiwan, therefore I just had to try the pira pira chicken on flatbread. Very delish, but it’s not available in Taiwan, here’s to hoping.
When Joy and I first got to the UK, we were very excited to shop at pretty much any supermarket. We were doubly excited to shop at marks and spencer simply food just because we heard about marks and spencer from one of our novels. Probably Sophie Kinsella, whose books I love since they are just downright hilarious. Confessions of a Shopaholic anyone?
Keeping it International
We had all sorts of intl. cuisine in England. Here’s just a small sampling of the intl. flavors we tasted:
falafel souvlaki [soov-lah-kee]
yum! bun less veggie burger
eating burrito bowls make me want to go to chipotle so bad, if only they opened a store in Taiwan *sigh*
Moving on to my fave meal of the day, breakfast! Breakfast was probably the only meal where we ate truly British style food.
The staples of a traditional British breakfast
just in case you were wondering. 😀 (note: this is not an exhaustive list and might not be fully accurate, it’s just based on my observations)
Hope everyone has had a great week of eats. Happy Wednesday!
What’s your favorite type of international cuisine?
