English Food?

The start of any healthy day?

Just a few more shots from the wife’s trip to London.

Above, the sausage and egg bap and the bubble and squeak at Wallace & Co in Putney.

Yum is that an Applebees skillet?

Fish and chips are par for the course when in London. So I just had to sample the sea bass at Applebee’s. (No, it’s not the American chain.) And the triple cooked chips at Prince of Wales in Putney.

That looks more like English food

Butchers Korean BBQ in New Malden.

Ready for a good stir

And finally, why not finish in Harrod’s candy department?

Dessert at last

Still not sated? Check out the 5th floor cafe at Waterstone’s book store, or Gordon’s wine bar, the oldest in London, or Vinopolis for wine tours and an amazing whisky selection.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    Can English food be delicious? Maybe I will change my mind… πŸ™‚

  4. There are some things I miss about London, and one of them is a decent pub with a fireplace & good food! Bubble & Squeak & a poached egg for Sunday brunch is another. Now triple cooked chips sound like a reason to plan a trip back for! ;D

    mm Bubble & Squeak! it’s been so long since I’ve been to London. πŸ™‚ love the pictures!

  11. ChefMom says:

    I totally missed this deliciousness when I was in London! (That’s what I get for going right out of college when I was used to living off of pizza and beer!)

  12. laneybot says:

    I’m headed to London next month for the first time and will keep this post in mind!

  13. Rita says:

    London is a great place to have a meal. Though many people dislike English cooking, I find it tasty and savoury. And even if you don’t like eating English, there are endless shops and restaurants from all over the world: you can eat whatever you feel like!! πŸ™‚
    Ever been at Fortnum & Mason food department? I go crazy whenever I step inside… πŸ˜›

  14. Your wife Katherine has a wonderful eye for great food. Everything looks so delicious, especially the Korean BBQ and the fish and chips. I am beginning to drool at this very moment.

    • Katherine says:

      Thanks Kay. (You have a first name!) I took pictures of all my meals and my friends’ meals and quite a few weren’t blog worthy. I didn’t do justice to some gastropub food, Thai, curry and even a scramble with salmon. We had some good food!

  15. fullasanegg says:

    It’s not a bap – It’s a barmcake, or just a ‘barm’. That’s what we call them in the north of England anyway. Silly Londoners with their ‘baps’. πŸ™‚

    • Katherine says:

      Oh that’s funny. Southerners and Northerners fight over what to call things here too. I’ll stand with the Northerners on this and call it a barmcake!

  16. Carolyn Chan says:

    Looks like the best of British food ! YUM.

  17. foodtable says:
