"At The Sportsman, a seaside pub on the pebbly Kent coast, I recently ate the best lamb I've ever tasted.."
Ok. But what I want is plain old fish and chips fried in real lard and maybe some bangers and mash. Or a pasty. The lamb you can keep with my compliments. So, when I say "the best pub food" I am talking about OTHER than lamb. Just a personal preference.
Visions of spotted dick and toad in the hole. But we'll start simply: fish and chips. Where are the best fish and chips in the entire world to be found? I'll tell you next time. But I know.
To all the hoards of Americans who follow this blog, chips are french fries. They are not really chips, as in crisps. Never mind.
Of course, in the UK, fish is what they call chicken. Not to confuse you about what we are talking about here.
