'EST EST EST' IN THE CENTRE OF...
'EST EST EST' IN THE CENTRE OF MANCHESTER IS SOPHISTICATED AND QUITE EXPENSIVE. BUT THE AMBIENCE AND THE FOOD IS ESQUISITE. IT IS AN ITALIAN RESTERAUNT WHICH IS MODERNLY SET.
QUITE AN EXPENSIVE PLACE BUT ACTUALLY WORTH ALL THE MONEY. wHEN I SAY EXPENSIVE I MEAN TO SOME ONE OF A MODERATE INCOME. pRICES ABOUT 35 POUNDS A HEAD.
Favorite Dish: THE SIMPLE PASTA DISHES I FOUND WERE THE NICEST ASIMPLE MEAT AND PASTA DISH. BUT WHAT I ENJOYED MOST WAS THE 'CHIANTI' A RED WHICH TASTED OF DIVINITY.
There are several Restaurants...
There are several Restaurants in London that I love. One is the Santorini off Queensway.It's greek food with great service, and awesome lamb dishes. The other is Rico Rodizio, a Brazilian Charcuteria.
Romantic, intimate,can accomodate larger groups too.
Favorite Dish: Santori has a superb soup, which is traditional in Greece. Also the lamb, as I mentioned is exquisite.
My favorite was not a...
My favorite was not a restaurant but a street shop serving greek gyro's. After walking in London all day we were making our way back to the hotel and found this shop built into a corner of a building. I had chicken donor topped with chips. Possibly the best thing I had ever had. Maybe it was because I was so tired, I don't know.
I can't say that I had a...
I can't say that I had a favorite restaraunt. Eating in the pubs was a little bit of a different experience. To be very truthful, the food left little to be desired. It was great though -- we were gone two weeks and I came back having lost weight.
Favorite Dish: I did have one favorite menu item. It was while we were in Scotland. It's a soup called Kockaleekie (that's spelled phonetically.) It was actually very good.

Oscar's in Enniskillen for admirers of Oscar Wilde.
It is small and quaint, but you sit surrounded with sayings and memorabilia of Osar Wilde. (The connection with ENNISKILLEN is that Oscar Wilde attended the Local 'Portora Royal School')
Favorite Dish: A Ulster 'Fry' Breakfast, or a typical Ulster High Tea with home made traditional Soda Breads
No favorite, really. Try the...
No favorite, really. Try the food at any of the local pubs in whatever town or village you stop or stay in.
The names of the food take some getting use to and having baked beans for breakfast is really different.
Favorite Dish: The full English breakfast.
Had a delicious English lunch...
Had a delicious English lunch inside this 16th century pub/ hotel (see pic below).
The KING'S ARMS PUB (pictured below) claims to have had King Charles as a Royal Guest at the time of the Battle of Naseby and this Royalist Hotel has had timbers carbon-dated to as far back as 987 A.D.
It is believed to be the oldest inn in England! Cool!
Hey, how often do you get to dine inside a 16th century pub huh?!
Favorite Dish: English fare... like Yorkshire pudding... Fish & Chips.... etc. Real yummy too!
But be warned: The portions aren't very large though. :-((
If you're an American, you may not be used to the 'bite' sized portion of food here!
The Pubs. Always the pubs....
The Pubs. Always the pubs. Food is good, cheap, hearty, and the selection of spirits and beer is phenomenal. If only they had beer like that in the States...
I didn't find London or the rest of the UK to be extraordinarily pricey but then I ate in pubs and local restuarants, not 5-Star places. I wanted to test the local cuisines.
Favorite Dish: In England, you can't go wrong with a pie. There is such a tremendous selection of restaurants from around the world and particularly the Middle East and India. That surprised me.
Cooking and Scottland ???...
Cooking and Scottland ??? remember you are a little bit in England!!! (* * AUTSCH * * ) So don't expect gourment food. I'd liked the hadshes (??) a little and there were nice little cofees in Edinburgh, but really good food I can't remember...
Oh, the Arbroath Smokies (smokes fish from the east coast) is nice as well.
Don't miss the Soup Works,...
Don't miss the Soup Works, right in the heart of Soho. Usually standing room only. You get a hunk of bread, a choice of fresh fruit, and unbelievably good soup, perfect to ward off London weather...
All soups are labled as to fat, dairy, meat content.
Favorite Dish: Pumkin and cashew soup...
They're all good--check soupworks.com
Vauxhall Cafe: Vauxhall Cafe
Favorite Dish: This is a small family run restaurant, catering to locals. For a wonderful traditional English breakfast, treat yourself to their breakfast special. It is huge and will easily feed two people for a very reasonable price.
Our favorite Indian restaurant...
Our favorite Indian restaurant was Pimlico Tandoori. Small restaurant with mostly locals. The food, atmosphere and service were all splendid.
Small, cozy restaurant where the locals eat. The food, atmosphere and service were all excellent.
Reasonable prices. Well worth the visit.
Favorite Dish: Delicious Nan (Indian bread) superb Garlic Chicken and fabulous Tandoori dishes. Be sure to try some Bangla beer from India too.
Silks & Spice: Silks & Spice
The menu is extensive. Prices are reasonable and range anywhere from 3.95 to 9.95 British Pounds.
Favorite Dish: This is a wonderful Thai Malaysian Cafe'-Bar. It serves excellent food and some of the best Satay Chicken and Pad Thai noodles you'll ever have. For desert the coconut ice cream is a MUST!!!

well, i like pubs because their usually so friendly and sell good homemade meals at low costs. be careful though because some pubs dont let people under 18 in because of the drinks.
the atmosphere is very nice, and the prices are good.
The Crypt.: The Crypt.
Waitress's wear old fashion black and whites with frilly aprons. Tables are a bit too close together. Great for lunch with pals.
Favorite Dish: American Fork Salad. A selection of fresh fruits and cottage cheese with crusty bread.
