London was the site of one of my more unplanned food discoveries. Being only the second stop of my trip, I was still really jet lagged and woke up very early. So, I found myself wandering the streets of London looking for something to eat and free Wifi.
When I saw a small little shop that had both "Full English Breakfast" and "Free Wifi" signs in the front, I knew I had reached my destination.
When I think of a full breakfast, I usually picture eggs, bacon or sausage, toast and home fries. An English breakfast is all of that, plus beans, a tomato, and some vegetables for good measure.
When the English say a "full" breakfast, they really mean it. Three kinds of meat, two kinds of potatoes, and beans--all served with an English style tea, of course.
The bacon is similar to Canadian bacon, in that it's back bacon, but isn't coated in peameal like the Canadian version. I also really enjoyed the beans since it reminded me of trips to Golden Griddle when I was younger, where I got plates full of the stuff. The breakfast is great and obviously very filling. What a great way to start an adventure filled day.
