Nelson: Late at night and looking for a meal, this neighbourhood pub was still open luckily. What's the most stereotypical pub meal in England? Why fish & chips of course.
Described on the menu as freshly battered large cod fish and chips (£6.60, 1242 calories). This was ok. Fish was mediocre, beans mediocre and fries were large and mediocre. What was absolutely gross was the tartar sauce. I had no idea it could be so bad. It was disgusting.
|They had a curry club on Thursday which we took advantage of by ordering a chicken tikka masala (£6.15). It had chicken breast marinated in tandoori spices in a rich tomato sauce with cream, red onion, butter, coriander and cardamom. Served with pilau rice, naan bread, mango chutney and poppadums. We added some vegetable samosas. The chicken was decent and the curry had pretty good flavour. The rice was too hard, the mango chutney wasn't very good. The carbs were pretty good though. The vegetable samosas had corn, carrots and not a lot of potato. Kinda weird.|
|We tried San Pellegrino, sparkling lemon beverage. This is Italian, but I don't really see it in North America, so that's why we tried it (plus Kitty can't have alcohol).|
|Lastly, here is a pic of the different sauces available. Salad Cream? Magnificent Mayonnaise? Mild English Mustard? So different from what we have here in North America!|
