One of the best things about travelling is the chance to try out a range of new and delicious foods. You get the opportunity to try new flavours and dishes that you would otherwise never have heard of or got the opportunity to if you had not been to that destination. After all, while you can try and replicate certain dishes from home, it’s never the same as having it where it originates from. You can’t quite beat fresh pasta made in Italy that you eat while in the shadows of the Colosseum, or an authentic curry from a food stall under the hot sun in India. One place that isn’t perhaps known for its food, but is something that is worth exploring, is the UK. By taking a trip to England, you can find many foods that are well worth a try. Here we list some of the best English foods that you need to try when you visit the United Kingdom. Be sure to check out some of the local restaurants when booking your accommodation so you know you can try out some of the best local cuisines!
Fish and Chips
Fish and chips are one of the most popular foods in the UK, particularly in seaside locations such as Brighton, Bournemouth and Newquay. You can enjoy food such as hot, salty & vinegary chips, battered sausages, cod and fish cakes. It’s an even better experience when eaten straight from their paper while sitting on the beach.
A full English breakfast
A full English is a must when you visit the UK. With sausages, bacon, hash browns, toast, tomatoes, black pudding and baked beans, it is a mouthwatering combination that is sure to satisfy any sort of palette. You can either make this yourself or head to a local cafe or restaurant that does breakfast – they will be sure to serve a full English that will set you up for the day ahead!
A roast dinner
Nothing says UK food like a roast dinner and it is something you need to try. There are many places that do roast dinners, from fancy restaurants to rustic pubs. Do your research to find the best place and you can enjoy different meats, vegetables, stuffing, Yorkshire puddings and plenty of gravy!
Afternoon tea is a quintessentially British tradition and is unmissable on your foodie trip. Tuck into an array of delicate sandwiches, freshly baked cakes and scones with clotted cream and jam. Wash this down with different types of tea, or upgrade to a bubbly afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco or champagne. There are a host of places that offer afternoon tea in England, so look up some reviews and book in advance to avoid disappointment!
