Dishes around the world have become part of different countries’ cuisine. It can sometimes be challenging to remember the origins of some of the most popular dishes. When visiting a Horsham bar or restaurant, patrons can expect to find several traditional and international food options. Here are some of the best and most popular traditional English dishes.
Full English Breakfast
The full English breakfast is one of the best-known traditionally English dishes. It is a large meal that will curb the hunger for many hours. A traditional English breakfast consists of bacon, eggs, sausage, baked beans, fried tomatoes, black pudding, mushrooms, and toast.
Fish and Chips
This traditional dish has become a favourite all over the world. Traditionally, fried hake and chips (or fries) are served in newspaper and enjoyed with friends or family. Today, different types of fish are sold in this combination. Healthier options like grilled fish have also become popular.
The bacon sandwich is another English staple. It is different from the well-known American BLT. The bacon sandwich is best made with a fresh, white bread roll that is generously buttered. The warm bacon is then added to melt the butter and make the sandwich even better.
The Sunday roast is also enjoyed all over the world. Some countries have their variations. The traditional roast consists of roasted beef, pork, chicken, or lamb. The roast is accompanied by roasted potatoes, roasted or blanched vegetables and gravy.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
The most famous English dessert is sticky toffee pudding. It is also found on most Horsham restaurant menus. It is a dark, treacly sponge with dates and covered in butterscotch sauce. The dessert is served with vanilla ice cream.
Other favourites to mention are pies and mash and sausage rolls or pork pies. Most of these dishes can be found on menus at restaurants and bars all over Horsham and the surrounding towns.
