Traditional Cornish steak pasty - The Harlequin Alehouse & Eatery
When in Rome, erm I mean London! I would say that these two food items, a pasty and mushy peas, are pretty traditional British foods so I had to order them. I wasn’t impressed, but it was airport food. The minted mushy peas weren’t very good at all, or perhaps I just don’t have a taste for them. The mint flavor was overpowering and synthetic tasting. I couldn’t finish the small serving of it! The pasty tasted ok, but I didn’t really like the thick dry dough. The inside was mostly potatoes with some beef mixed in. Not a lot of flavor, but I’m glad I tried the two.

Wow, after a long flight from San Francisco and a long layover before boarding for Dublin, I totally needed this! It was pretty good, but I’m no beer expert. I really think the British pound and coversion rates are gonna kill me, lol!
