Full English Breakfast

2023 Full-Time, England, International

It’s a cultural experience, certainly not a daily ritual for Brits or anyone else, but the Full English Breakfast is a delightful and truly filling meal. Along with Fish & Chips and Bangers & Mash, it’s a traditional meal served in most of the pubs and restaurants we’ve visited. That said, the food scene in London is quite diverse. Crave Asian? Indian? Mediterranean? Italian? French? Just walk down the High Street in any neighborhood. But we’re here to taste the British foods we read so much about. We’ve tried the Steak & Kidney Pie, Sticky Pudding, Scotch Eggs, Treacle Tart and more. We did a proper Afternoon Tea aboard the Queen Mary 2. But we’re still on the lookout for more ways to expand our experience and hopefully not expand our waist measurements!

Fish & Chips at Old Cheshire Cheese, the oldest pub in London
Bangers and Mash with Black Pudding
Steak & Onion Pie and Apple Sausages & Mash at Westminster Arms
Chicken Schnitzel & Chips and Bangers & Mash at Walkers of Whitehall

P.S. Thanks for bearing with us as we pour our energies into experiencing London. Time enough later to document our adventures here. Be on the lookout for more posts.

      That sounds intriguing! La Gaffe offers a continental breakfast daily and the croissants are delectable.

    You’re making me hungry. Although I did have my share of Fish and Chips, Full Scottish Breakfast, Salmon, Trout, Mussels, Scallops, Steak and Ale pies, Sticky Pudding, Spotted Dick, and other local foods while in Scotland. Glad you are enjoying the local foods. Steve, I hope you have tried some of the Porters there and Karen the IPA’s. That is where those brews were first made.

      Been enjoying stouts and bitter ales. Have yet to find a porter on tap. Have also found some great cocktails.
