Blame on me, I didn’t know about the existence of this great human invention before my travel to London.
During my stay in the Queen’s hometown, I must admit I had a little trouble looking for typical food to try. As far as I could observe, British cuisine is not as rich as other countries’, but they definitely know where to hit and Scotch Eggs is absolutely one of my favourite food discoveries ever.
This dish is usually prepared for picnics, and since I didn’t have the chance to taste one Scotch Egg lovely prepared by a British granny, I could only rely on what I found around the city. In particular, I had the chance to find an awesome one in Borough Market, a magical place for those who love food and highly recommended to those who prefer to have a quick lunch when travelling.
The stand where I got it from is Scotchtails (they even have a website, check it out!), and I spent 4,5£ for the basic version. It may seem a little bit expensive, but for that amount of money, other than having a fulfilling meal, you’ll get a real taste of heaven. It was one of the most satisfying experiences during my stay, and it might be in my top 3 list of reasons why I should go back to London one day.
Yes, I am that serious when it comes to food. 🌚
In conclusion, the only consideration I am left with is:
God save the Queen and Scotch Eggs, please.
