1 - English Breakfast

Wherever you go in England, with the necessary variations, the English breakfast is a must try.

It is the mainstay of the British day, it is very different from the Italian breakfast and perhaps this is why it is so interesting to discover.

First it's a savory breakfast, consisting of strong and substantial dishes: eggs are a must, sausages, crispy bacon, beans cooked in tomato sauce, mushrooms, all accompanied by bread with butter, a bowl of pudding and a cup of steaming coffee or tea .

Consider our eating habits, probably, with an original English Breakfast you will remain full until the evening!

Among other things, this is a seaside city, where this dish of fried fish and chips becomes even more important, it is always fresh and tasty, which is why it is particularly popular.

It is a single dish served with a generous portion of cod or other type of fish with a thick and crunchy breading, fried and served with a side of chips and savory sauces, including the garlic one.

You cannot miss the appointment of five o'clock tea, an authentic ritual for British citizens.

Real tea is drunk without sugar, often accompanied by a drop of milk, and tradition has it that, while sipping the drink, you can taste the famous scones, typical sweet rolls, small but very leavened, which are cut in two and stuffed with butter and jam.

Butter is very popular and can be found practically everywhere.

  • Recommended to: Lunch Dinner
  • Average cost: £ 10,00 (€ 12,00)

8 - Eggs Benedict

Considered a separate meal or even the completion of the English Breakfast, these eggs are the most celebrated dish from British chefs, even Gordon Ramsay has included them as proof of the Masterchef program.

It is a compound dish really interesting: the scones cut in half, two poached eggs, slices of crunchy bacon and, on top of this tower of ingredients, a pour of so-called Hollandaise sauce, a kind of mayonnaise with the addition of butter.

A dish to be eaten with caution, given the high intake of fat, but very tasty and nutritious. It is rumored that the best Brighton Eggs Benedict are at Bill's.

  • Recommended to: breakfast lunch
  • Average cost: £ 10,00 (€ 12,00)

Originally this started out as an Indian dish.
Yet it has now so entered the gastronomic tradition of the country that it is considered an English dish.

This dish has become, after several reinterpretations, a sort of chicken stew, cooked with masala sauce, made with cream, curry and tomato, which gives the dish a very particular orange color.
The dish is usually served with naan bread and rice.

  • Recommended to: Lunch Dinner
  • Average cost: £ 10,00 (€ 12,00)
  • Main ingredients: chicken, cream, curry, tomato, spices

It is a typical dessert, so sweet that it is strongly not recommended for non-gluttonous ones par excellence.
It is sold on street corners in small squares, so you can also eat it as a snack or street food.

In Brighton you will find it more easily along the pier, in the small candy stands.
It's done based on milk, sugar, caramel, cream, butter: compound that gives it great softness and the ability to melt in contact with the palate. But it can also be found in other variants, such as chocolate.

  • Recommended to: snack
  • Average cost: £ 5,00 (€ 5,50)
  • Main ingredients: dairy products, sugar
