What to eat when in the United Kingdom – 18 Must Eats
8. Full English/Scottish Breakfast
Definitely one of my favorites. I love starting an eventful day with a Full English Breakfast. During my trip, I met a lovely American woman in Edinburgh who thought that baked beans were not part of breakfast, but part of lunch. I find it very interesting to see how one’s cultural background forms the perspective of new ones.
10. Scotch Egg
You can probably find Scotch Eggs in every Tesco if you want to try it. It’s a whole boiled egg, wrapped in sausage meat and coated in breadcrumbs. I think it’s a nice afternoon snack. I’m not going to lie, I had some of those as a student in England when I was too lazy to cook.
14. Cream Tea
Cream tea is a form of afternoon tea. It is usually tea served with scones, clotted cream and sometimes butter. If you want something different with your tea, you can try Spotted Dick (steamed pudding). I already said that they have their thing with their names….
16. Easy DIY
Here I would like to mention Apple Crumble and Bread and Butter Pudding. They don’t have that much in common except that they are super easy to make yourself. So you don’t have to wait for your Great Britain trip to try them.
17. Black and White Pudding
Sometimes I get the feeling that you can’t trust the word ‘pudding’ in English. In this case black pudding, also known as blood pudding, is a type of blood sausage. White pudding is similar to black pudding but without the blood.
Haggis is also a savory pudding that contains sheep’s pluck. I tried it. It was really not bad, actually quite tasty. But I couldn’t eat it again. I just can’t get out of my head what’s in it.
Side note: I didn’t include the eel in jelly because I can’t see the photos of it without feeling some kind of way. And since it is no longer really popular in England, I think it is also no longer a must eat.
