What a way to finish my English Food adventures. I had no option but to have another Gammon with egg and pineapple. I have to say this is my favourite meal in England!! The Gammon @hesketharms is amazing!! I am in heaven and will have to find this in Brisbane, my new mission.
Not really one to be a regular on the High Tea scene. When you get delivered a spread like the one @colwallpark you are pleasantly surprised. Deceptively large with 3 delicious sandwiches and a long list of cakes and pastries which all seemed to have come from another planet!! Lemon tart, macaroons, fudge brownie, shortbread, lemon drizzle cake, carrot cake and a Proseco to wash it all down. If this is what High Tea is about, i could be converted. Fantastic service and beautiful garden setting.
I love the idea of Paddock to Plate, and in England with such amazing produce, this is an even more exciting prospect! To say this meal was good is an understatement. Homemade lasagna and Duck and Orange pate, which was possibly the best I have tasted. The team @thetalbotknightwick are amazing and with almost every ingredient coming from the grounds themselves they should be very proud. Money well spent and an absolutely epic meal!! So good!!
In England you do not automatically think of Spanish Tapas. The selection and fantastic quality of food at La Vina, blew me away!! King Prawns, Fish, Smoked Duck Salad, Pork Belly, Spanish Tortilla and a cheese board to make you weak at the knees!! Brilliant place to eat and a must do when in Liverpool.
There are two words in the English language that is music to my ears, Smoked Brisket!! This pulled Smokey brisket sandwich @angelcorbridge was something pretty special!! The brisket was cooked in its own Dark Beer and Treacle gravy, and that is talking dirty in my book. The Angel of Corbridge is a little gem with great beers and food on offer, i would fly 24hrs to get another one of these, well done.
My English Pub pilgrimage continues, this time in the beautiful North East of England. Sticking to the plan with a fantastic Northumbrian Trio of Sausages with onion gravy and mashed potato @masonsarms_pub !! Its no burger, but the English sure know how to do an epic pub meal.
Another day and another burger. If you can't tell, i love a good burger and back to my happy place with the Stacked BBQ Beef burger at The Hesketh Arms in Rufford. Big juicy pattie with amazing Onion Rings and Sweet Potato Fries. Life is good when this is what comes out. England is definitely impressing withe burgers and looking forward to testing a few more!!
The simple things in life are often the best and this is so true in Paris. The Buffalo Mozzarella and tomato salad and French Onion soup @chezclaudeparis were amazing and i could eat this stuff for days!! No fancy stuff needed here, just great ingredients.
When in Rome, or Paris, had to have the signature Champagne and Macaroons on the Eiffel Tower!! Dark chocolate, raspberry, caramel and jasmine flower, washed down amazingly well with an ice cold bubbles! @lenotre_paris . Hungry Henry going a bit fancy!!🇫🇷🇫🇷
There are 2 types of food, that which fills your stomach and that which totally satisfies!! Whilst escaping the rain in Preston, Lancashire @thetwelvetellers, One of the Wetherspoons pubs, I found type 2!!!!
I Do love a burger but in this case the traditional english pub meals looked a lot better. Having said that, Quite an interesting pulled beef burger with beef pattie, cheese and bacon!! Great fries which are a staple in England. The only way is up and there will be many burgers to come!!
Happy Hundred Post for Hungry Henry!!!! Hitting the burgers again amd back to our local @beyondthepalebar !! The Bacon Cheeseburger has come a long way since these guys opened!! Really hit the spot and had to double it up, would be silly not to!! Cracking burger and great beers ro wash it all down!! Love having this place so close.
Away for work last week and was able to have a pretty special dinner @harbourfrontrestaurant in Woollongong!! Chicken breast with potato rosti, leak puree and asparagus and some tempura zucchini flowers!! Doesnt get much better than this and lots of love for eating in the Gong!!
Clovelly Estate Breakfast at Poets Cafe Montville was the best start to a Saturday!! The breakfast is just about as good as the view!! Bacon, potato rosti, mushrooms, eggs and sour dough!! Breakfast of Champions!!
I do have a soft spot for pork products of any kind. The pork scratchings with apple sauce @brouhahabrewery were pretty special!! Washed down with an absolutely delicious Milk Stout, what more could you possibly want? Maybe more pork and beer! This place is great!!
Getting my Greek on last night in West End and had a couple of the specials @littlegreektaverna and they did not disappoint!!! Lemon Lamb & Greek Chicken signature dishes certainly hit the spot!! Fantastic selection of great Greek fare and BYO makes it even better. Worth checking out.Definitely get him to this Greek!!
Nothing like a cheeky mid week dinner outing. Haloumi, proscuitto and mouth watering beef brisket with cheesy mash and broccolini. @ploughinnsb , doing a couple of classics here and very tasty. Pub Grub on steroids in my book!!
