Used to compete of there a fair bit and when we went to get a steak  it was always horse meat , we then clicked on and you had to ask for beef steak at twice the price . 

Don't order the cheval

Actually, black pudding is really nice.

Not just a bit nice, but really nice.

You should try it. Really no different to any other sausage. Just don't think about it.

Not a great fan of liver, but a good steak and kidney pie is to die for.

My mother in law used to eat soft cod roe till I told her it was sperm. She didn't seem as keen after that, even though she'd eaten it all her life.

Its not sperm it is eggs.

Hard roe is eggs, soft roe is sperm.

I guess the question is parley,

Which one have you been eating?


Nearly there! Don't drop the ball now guys! Vaccines are weeks away. Stay safe!

I ordered something in a little northern French village once. My French isn't great and they didn't speak English. It turned out to be the most tender and succulent steak I've ever had. Could have been horse. I'd have it again.

Neither. Too fancy for me. I don't think I have ever had caviar either.

I remember when I was in Rouen on work experience, the most popular dish in the restaurants was pigs' testicles. Never quite worked up enough courage to try it.

The French and Belgians eat every part of the animal.  😝  I became a very picky eater when I lived there.

Anyone know anywhere in Melbourne where you can get a decent what I would call a ‘full English’ breakfast? 

A workmate wants to try one.

You know, sausage, bacon, beans, toast, mushrooms, hash browns and all that. He even wants to try black pudding with it.

 

Best you will get in terms of a Greasy Spoon is the Port Truckie Diner.  However the sausages are beef and no black pudding.  Also like every Aussie breakfast, they can't resist putting a bit of garnish on🤣🙄

Port Truckie Diner | restaurant | 420 Footscray Rd, Melbourne VIC 3003, Australia | 0396899975 OR +61 3 9689 9975

 

 

If you want black pudding you are going to have to cook your own breakfast.  You can get black pudding at most Woolies now (Irish Clonakilty) or Rob's Butchers in Dandenong makes a great version.

Or come round to mine😉

Sorry but hash browns shouldn't be anywhere near an English (or Scottish or Irish) breakfast

I wonder where they came from? On a lot of breakfasts here. Potato cakes are traditional though? Scottish?

They came from the USA.  I read somewhere that they appeared in the US about the same time as processed (frying) chips.  The small offcuts from the chips could be compounded to make the hash browns.

So hubby made a batch of Staffordshire oatcakes today. Unbeknownst to us it's actually National Oatcake Day in the UK! Good timing!

Depending where you are, they do deliveries during lockdown - check their Facebook.
