London, England Post 2

I spent the last few months traveling from London to Beijing. Here is a taste of one place we spent time. Follow the links to read about others.

September 12th- 16th, 2005

While in London John and I spent a day with our new friend Ian.  He lives in Cardiff yet was a wealth of knowledge about London and the history of the U.K. in general.

We walked around a number of the touristy sites and put in a few hours in a pub later in the evening.  In between we stopped at the Cornish Bakehouse for pasties.  The Cornish Bakehouses are a chain and can be found in many areas.  I ordered a spicy vegetable pasty which was quite good.  They were served warm and had a delightfully flaky crust.  These little pies have quite a bit of sodium, so the following stop at the pub becomes quite necessary.

tanvi - ahhh you’re reminding me of my own pasty experience not too long ago- enjoy england!

J - pasties…surely the ultimate in pub grub…and that crust does look delightfully flaky!

gemma - Hi Tanvi, I just read your post ( Very nice!
It really was flaky J. I have to admit, I was quite taken aback. I expected a (satisfying yet) tough and mass-produced tasting crust, but it was quite lovely.
