Fish and Chips
Fish and chips are definitely at the top of the staple diet of every Englander. A crisp batter fried fish with crackling gold skin glistening with delicious fat and melted butter, along with light, evenly coloured French fries to go along with it. There are plenty of dips included like mayonnaise and tomato ketchup. The best place to have this classic dish is outside, with the cool breeze caressing off your face. A pint of beer helps to compliment the flavour and wash down the fish beautifully.
Banger and Mash
Mash potatoes and sausages is what this dish is all about. There is a generous serving of peas and gravy to help incorporate it into one seamless dish. The mash potatoes are creamy and buttery smooth and you can feel the flavour of the spices in the sausages come out with guns blazing. This is a must have dish at London!
This uses lamb as the meat compared to the cottage pie that uses beef. What is amusing about both of these dishes is that neither of them are pies in the actual pastry sense. The Shepherd’s pie consist of minced lamb, carrots, tomatoes, onions and potatoes that are generally layered at the top of the meaty filling.
