There were two pubs that served British style foods within walking of the last building I worked in.

You can buy English food online in the British Corner Shop. The question is if it's still fresh when delivered?!

Tho this place is primarily Scottish, they've some verrrry tasty British sweets.. :)

Yeah, English imported food stores are big here in Eastern Canuckville as well. Mostly cater to the ex-pats I guess, they seem to have mostly obscure brands of tea and British junk food. There is one near us that also rents kilts by the hour. Seriously.

Brit butchers and bakers are seen sometime as well. We have one that makes the best Scotch eggs....

Really now, kilts by the hour? Heathens that don't own a kilt...

Some heathens apparently like to get married in a kilt, and would then never use it again. Renting sort of makes some sense then.

Yeah I guess so, though I can't see Myself in one... My lower legs are no longer hairy...

Oh and as to English food, some like bangers and mash sounds interesting...

Come to NYC (after it's recovered).

In Manhattan there's Tea & Sympathy, its partner A Salt and Battery, The Spotted Pig, etc.

Brooklyn has its Chip Shops, Park Slope and Atlantic Avenue.

And many more.


I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

Don't forget to put the gravy over it all.

No apology needed. English is a Germanic language. English food in a German store is not out of the question.

Traditional english foods are an endangered spieces here in Australia since the invasion of such "delicies" as macdonalds and hungry jacks.

And, just what is wrong with getting married in your kilt?
