Went to London last February for 10 days to see some football matches. Ate all kinds of stuff, but I think my favorites were the various kebab and donner places, the Indian food and I had some pretty good meat pies at the various football grounds. I think my single most favorite meal was a fresh grilled sausage with onions and stilton cheese that I got at the Borough Market south of the river. Pretty unbleievable market with all kinds of crazy shit from beer, to boar to all kinds of exotic fruits. I did have fish and chips at several different places and found it to be the most greasy, tasteless pieces of fried fish I have ever had. I tried putting vinegar on it, curry sause etc., all the condiments they have for that and none of it helped. I mean I guess it sereved a puropose after numerous pints, but not much in the way of taste. One of the places near where we stayed was the Fishcoteque, right by the Waterloo Station! Had some good Turkish food in London as well. Lots of beers!
