TIt might seem strange, but this prized national dish originated in the UK and is every bit as British as fish & chips. It comprises tender chunks of chicken marinated in yoghurt and spices, then cooked in a clay tandoor oven. It's served with rice and hearty unleavened naan bread.
Depending on your viewpoint, this calorific classic is either a hangover-busting godsend or a heart attack waiting to happen. It consists of bacon, sausage, eggs, baked beans and toast, though don't be surprised if you find sautéed mushrooms, the occasional grilled tomato or even a cheeky slice of black pudding thrown into the mix.
The traditional Sunday dinner is a British institution, and a UK travel 2015 must-try. It consists of your choice of roasted meat - lamb, chicken, beef and pork are the usual suspects - with roast potatoes and a variable cast of boiled vegetables, covered in rich gravy.
Nothing says 'England' quite like a cream tea. It consists of a warm fruit scone cut in half then smothered liberally with clotted cream and strawberry jam, served with a piping hot pot of tea.
Found everywhere from upscale restaurants in London to the lowliest local chippie, fish & chips is the definitive UK dish. Look for crispy batter and well-cooked chips, and plump for a sundry like a pickled onion or even a pickled egg!
