If you haven't had one of these you haven't lived :)

Originating from where I was born/bred and continue to live, I shall be having one on new years. Nom nom nom :)

Does sound interesting and different.

OY you guys, all that belong in the Cooking/Beer thread.
OK more off topic. I liked my Grandma's tripe. Off course in a sweet and sour sauce to cover it good.
What can I say.

Oy yourself, go find your own national food site.

Now should I wash down this meal of Westfälische Schinken, Kartoffelsalat und Sauerkraut with a DAB or a Herforder Pils

Please yap
Pluto will always be a planet to me.

We have exactly two English food stores in Belgium and they're both in Brussels.
But no restaurants...

To answer the title of the thread; It's because we have no English people here. :-)

Basically, anyplace that sells boiled potatoes and overcooked vegetables is an English resteraunt, IMHO.


LOL. This is why I always look forward to my trips abroad. PROPER food!

;)

We have Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai, Italian, German, Mexican and other ethnic food style eateries in thr USA but I have never seen an English, Scottish, Welch or Irish restaurant. I think American style cooking and meal selections are not much like what is eaten in those places so I wonder why no one specializes, other than some fish & chips places, in English food? I also rule out Irish and Scottish Pubs as they are primarily drinking establishments.


If you ever make your way up here to Northern Idaho, check out Eichardts Pub. The owner started it after spending 14 years in England and Australia. Great place.

I don't think English people actually eat English Breakfast! Certainly not the black pudding :yuck:

Maybe it's just me who doesn't have time for an English breakfast in the mornings?!

I'm only part English, so what do I know?

It's mostly eggs and sausage here, or sometimes pancakes....

With coffee of course.

OK, so this is about Ms Merkel and DC, but I couldn't resist when seeing the name of the establishment.
