I am pretty sure a proper British will be disgusted by my list, but I'll try anyway. So it's one of those nights where you don't really want to either cook or try to reproduce one of the typical Italian dishes you are so used to eat. So what you do, you run to Sainsbury's or to some pub, and try to feed yourself. My personal favourite list:
- Kettle Crisps: simply awesome, that's when you understand a certain latent obsession for crisps (not chips!) in those guys. The root vegetable mix is the best in my opinion.
- Curry: although I was not used at all to spicy food, I started with Kormas and now I moved to Tikka and Balti. I am told that I am way far from the hottest ones!
- Parsnips: I can't even understand how to say this in Italian. But they are quite good oven cooked wiht other veggies or with meat
- Beer / Ale: Yes, this is considered a full fledged nutriment in UK. You are officially allowed to only have chips as an accompaniment. But I usually like to ignore the social rules and have a ton of food along with it
- Posh Sandwiches: I have found that my choice of sandwiches is considered "posh" by some people here. Usually I have roast beef with horseradish if I can find it
- Bangers & Mash: A pub classic! When you order it, there is a high chance that it comes with parsnips crisps (or sweet potato) so it's a win/win
- Pancakes with cured ham and cheese: this is not British at all, but since I live here and I invented it, now it is. The favourite lunch break food.
- Butter: they put it everywhere. Olive oil does not exist. You can practically sprinkle some salt on a chunk of butter and eat it, that's considered a meal
And what about you? Anything you fancy in particular?
