Full English breakfast – Cote

Full English breakfast - Cote
Two free range eggs, bacon, pork sausage, tomato, mushrooms and toast. Β£7.50
Cote, London ENGLAND

This was our first breakfast in London this time around and I was not impressed. My eggs were overdone; I asked for over-medium. Is that an American thing and that’s why I can’t get it properly cooked anywhere else? If I knew, I would just order my eggs scrambled or poached. I also haven’t gotten used to English bacon and the weird squishy sausages they have here. I really don’t want to sound like I’m complaining because the food was decent, but after having eaten in Paris for the previous days this was a bit lackluster. πŸ™‚

  1. Oh, and by the way: I can’t get a properly done “Over Medium” anywhere! Well, at least, not for less than a $30 breakfast… I don’t think it’s an American thing; I think it’s a training thing. If a chef is in a higher-end establishment, there’s a higher probability that the food will be done as asked.

  2. Wow, you do get around a lot. It looks good, but doesn’t sound very good. Here in the states we do know how to fry an egg properly. And I agree, over easy or medium is much better than the over dry hard ones. They go better with cheese and slices of tomatos between 2 slices of toast. I much prefer mopping up the runny middle with the toast, and do prefer the sausages a bit crispier on the outside. But, having never visited England, I’m not sure what their food would taste like.
