I’ll miss pub lunches when I leave England!

Pubs are always welcoming places.

Especially when it’s sunny out and they have a rooftop bar/restaurant area! Here’s an Englishman I documented:

Obviously, the best part is the food. Meet pie platter, a platter with two chicken and leek pies and two steak pies, plus some hearty “chips.”

This doesn’t exactly fit in with my healthy eating kick, but I can’t imagine a world in which I’m able to resist a good pie. Honestly. Look at this thing:

English people like to say “ta” or “ta very much” (in this case “ta v much”) and oddly “ta muchly,” which I try to ignore because it’s the kind of word that could easily irritate me.

Typically you’d have a Sunday roast, but I don’t currently have pictures of our latest roast. Blame my mom. They are on her camera and she went back to the US without downloading them!

    You’re not leaving the UK for good, are you? After resettling in Hong Kong since the mid-1980s or early 90s, not a day goes by for me that I still miss pub lunches.

    • Not for a couple years, so I’ll try to get my fill of pub lunches. Hopefully I’ll learn to make pies on my own so I won’t have to go to pubs so much for them! Maybe you should start a pub in Hong Kong!

      • But … but … but going to pubs for lunch is the whole point of living and working – isn’t it?

        Yeah, right, pub in Hong Kong … we got them (albeit dwindling in numbers). Trouble is, rent in Hong Kong is about two or three times higher than New York!

        (Oh, well, back to the pub for a drink to mull over how to pay rent…)

  2. And the beer on-draught is better too.

  3. That was just cruel to go posting pictures like that when pregnant ladies might be reading! 🙂 That looks soooo good!

    Also, didn’t realize the English said ta. My Australian stepmom always says it, and I heard it a lot while I was there, but don’t remember it in England. Very cool!

    Those pies look amazing. Where is that pub?!
