Bad British Food: Myth or Reality?

Anyone who watches me chow down during our cooking segments, know I like to eat. I take food very seriously. Hey everyone. Rob here.

However, unlike Frank Marzullo, I am not a food snob. I'm not above a good hot dog. Chick-fil-A is not the only fast food restaurant I frequent. Not a major risk taker, like Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods, but I do give all foods a try. I was nervous about the British food scene. Some say the Brits only eat fish and chips, shepard's pie, carrots, peas and brussels sprouts.

After arriving in England, I discovered there's good and bad. I had a great meal at Jamie Oliver's restaurant in Covent Gardens. The bolognese I had there rivaled Via Vita and Nicola's.

My mate's mum also had us over for a proper English supper. It was a roast with Yorkshire pudding on the side smothered with gravy. My best meal during the entire vacation.

Don't get me wrong, there were some bad meals. I had the worst hot dog in my life at an "American Sports Pub" near Trafalgar Square. Eating at an American sports pub in London, probably a bad decision on our part, but a friend of mine was dead set on getting chicken wings. Also the burgers taste weird there. I don't recommend ever ordering one. I did try mint pea at a pub at the foot of the Tower Bridge. Delicious.
