I actually ordered a steak and ale pie, which looked amazing in the pictures, but they were out of them. So I settled for this “hotpot” instead. It was pretty good in the end. It was made up of tender lamb and potatoes with onions and mushrooms, all baked in a little ramekin. I actually ordered mushy peas, but they gave me whole, so I mushed them myself and put them in my hotpot. I’m finding out very quickly that which I always suspected: English food is good if you know what to order —they are expert “pie” makers here.
This was the best meal at the college so far! The pork and apple pie was so good, I ate an extra portion. It had big juicy chunks of pork in a lovely savory sauce. There were mushrooms, onions, and slices of apple in with the pork, all under a crispy, flaky, perfect philo dough. The potatoes and corn were nothing special, but the salad was very bland. The dessert was awesome though, cream puffs floating in a dark chocolate bath! I wish they made this for me every night!
I didn’t think they could make descent Mexican food in Europe, but they do! Taste wise, this was the best meal I have eaten since I borded the plane in Chicago. The Mission is just like Chipotle, but the flavours are slightly different. I ordered the same thing I would get at Chipotle, and I think I like The Mission more. When the guy was done adding stuff to my burrito, he sort of massaged it all around, mixing everything together. What a good idea, someone should forward that to Chipotle. Good dinner.
Lamb doner kebab with raw onion, cabbage, and chili sauce, all in a warm pita. I ate this one out of my lap on a bench in a tiny square. The lamb doner was balanced nicely with the freshness of the raw veg, and the spicyness of the chili sauce. For only £3, it was a pretty decent take away meal.
Salmon filet, roasted potatoes, cabbage and greens, pear, plums, strawberries and cream for dessert. Not a terrible dinner, the strawberries and cream were well tasty.
