- Style-wise, they blow us completely out of the water. We couldn't dream of being more fashionable!
- They are a witty bunch. You can't beat a good conversation with a delightfully smart Londoner. Hopefully this is rubbing off on my convo skills, so I can impress all my friends back home.
- Those accents! I've been here for 2 months, and I still love it.
However, there is one thing that they don't do better. BREAKFAST. Let me show you a picture of the typical British breakfast:
To further my distaste for English Breakfast is my OBSESSION with American Breakfast. I am a breakfast girl all the way. And boy, do we have it down perfectly! Golden pancakes, fluffy eggs and crispy bacon (the Brits call this 'streaky bacon' as it has streaks of fat in it...HAHA!).
So, you could imagine my excitement when I found out there are some diners boasting to serve American Breakfast here in London. I had to check it out!!
First Attempt: The Breakfast Club in Soho
A cheeky establishment with an undeniably great name!
Verdict: The sausage was amazing (another thing the British do better). But the pancakes were a little burnt and the eggs were less-than-desirable. This place had a fantastic atmosphere, but sort of failed at American Breakfast.
Second Attempt: The Diner in Shoreditch
Verdict: This is the best replica I've found. The pancakes were pure perfection, and truly a bite of home! Although I ordered a burger (well done, which they called 'cremated'...LOVE THE WITTINESS), I tried my friend's breakfast and was delighted to taste those fluffy eggs I was dreaming of.
So far, The Diner has the BEST American Breakfast I've found. Will I stop here or continue searching????? To be continued...
