7 Food you must try while visiting UK

If you are going on a vacation to the UK or already have landed in the UK for either work or leisure and you are a foodie, make sure you try some of the best traditional food of the great British. I know you might be hesitant to try British food because of the reputation it has gathered for years for being bad or terrible. Some people when trying to put it nicely would say that it’s just bland and boring, but if you leave the hotels in Manchester and go for a food tour, you will realize that the UK does have tasty food and is not boring at all. 

To save you the stress of testing every food in the UK in search of the best, here is a list of foods you must try while visiting the UK.

1)    Bangers & Mash

This is a very traditional UK meal. It’s also known as sausages & mash potatoes. It is a very simple made dish and seems to be a favorite of the great British, because of the cheesy and creamy mash which tickles your taste buds. 

The meal has been around for centuries and is very common in households. It is made with beef sausages, pork, or lamb along with mashed potatoes and sometimes (if you want it more cheesy) eaten with butter. The toppings include green peas, fried onions, or onion gravy. Due to its popularity in the country, this meal was dubbed “Britain’s comfort food” because of the satisfaction it brings to anyone who eats it.

2)    Fish and chips 

Also, one of the British favorites has a history that dates back to the 1860s, which has added to the reasons why it is very popular and famous to both natives and foreigners alike. The dish is made with flour, fish, and chips. The fish is dipped into flour and fried, which results in a flour-coated fish served with fried chips and toppings of vinegar or ketchup, which is a delicious delight.

Fish and chips can be found in stalls that sell food in the UK and definitely in fancy restaurants or hotels in Manchester (or anywhere in the UK). In order not to get disappointed, because unfortunately, not all restaurants or food stalls make good fish and chips, before going for it, do research on the places that make the best fish and chips. 

3)    Sunday roast 

This, as the name implies, is served on Sundays after church. It is an unspoken tradition that has gone on for years in the UK and is still being practiced today. 

Sunday roast is a meal that consists of protein which could be roasted chicken, beef or lamb, roasted or mashed potatoes and with toppings like Yorkshire pudding, mint sauce, gravy, and veggies like carrots, broccoli, green peas, parsnips, or Brussels sprouts served with a cold juice or any drink of your choice.

One thing about this meal is that it does not only taste delicious, but it helps to bring families together and helps them bond over food since the meal is normally served as a family lunch or dinner.

4)    The English breakfast 

Known for being a proper breakfast meal because of how varied it is, the English breakfast is an ancient meal that was commonly served to neighbors, guests, and relatives when they visited a British household.

The meal, which consists of toasted bread, sausages, mushrooms, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, black pudding, and beans, and is served with coffee or tea, is one of the best cuisines in the UK, with its mouth-watering appearance and balanced diet. 

5)    Pie & Mash

Known for how sizable it is and its history of being carried by workers to work, Pie & Mash was dubbed the “working-class food” during Queen Victoria’s reign in the 1830s.

The pastry pie is made of mashed potatoes mixed with butter or chess, which makes it creamy, and a liquor sauce that is used as a topping. 

It was usually sold in pie shops during the Victorian era, but in modern days, there are restaurants that sell this scattered across the UK. You can walk into one and have a taste of this delicious delight.

6)    Bubble & Squeak 

Bubble & Squeak is a not-so-popular food in the UK, but that does not change the fact that this meal is still one of the best dishes to come out of the UK. The meal has been in existence since the 18th century. The meal is made in a circle cake with butter and fried animal fat with boiled cabbage and potatoes with a lot of vegetables. 

7)    Welsh Cawl

If you are someone who is fond of soups, then this meal is definitely something you should try when visiting the UK. The soup is made of meat (chicken, lamb or beef), leeks, potatoes, carrots, and stock. Sometimes veggies are added. It depends on your taste and how you want it to be served to you.

It’s a very healthy dish, which is used to chase the cold from the body during the winter season.

If you are a food and you plan on going to the UK, make sure to take out time to experience this seven-cuisine delight as it would tickle your taste buds as you eat from another culture.
