I'm from New England and will be going to Old England for a week with my family to help me move into university. I got to talking about the food from home that I'll miss while I'm at school (clam chowder, steamers, lobster, good burgers, good pizza) and decided that the best thing to do while we're in England is to seek out all of the foods that people from England miss when *they* leave home.
Taking a couple stabs in the dark I came up with chip shops, indian food, pasties, and good beer, but I thought I would ask here. I should specify that we'll be in London and Oxford, so haggis and welsh rarebit are probably out (unless they can be had in London/Oxford.)
So, when you leave the country, whats the stuff that you miss? And where's the best place to get it?
