Looking for Assorted 'British' foods and a Rant :)

Hi all

I'm hunting for any place in the Boston area that might be making
any savoury pies on a daily basis - like chicken/cornish pasties/ sausage rolls/steak and kidney pies/beef and onion/veg pies/cheese and onion pies etc..
Ditto any places that are not doing ridiculously overpriced 'fish n chips'
(went to Elephant and Castle and tried their fish n chips, which was barely passable - luckily I stopped them from putting damn chutney on everything. What IS it with sugared foods here? (They also use canned baked beans that are sweet as hell, and have no place in any genuine British food. Grrr.

I'm going through withdrawal symptoms, coming from South Africa, which is a mix of UK/Dutch/French and African foods - to nonstop sweet products everywhere with hardly any savoury or salty foods available, outside of various 'ethnic' stores.. (been making my own biltong, for instance - which is a superior form of jerky)
But I'm craving normal tasting foods which don't seem to be easily available here.

Also - any cheese geeks here - can someone explain why the cheese that is called 'cheddar' in the US, behaves differently than EU and African cheddar cheese, when heated? (The stuff here turns to runny water, and loses all consistency when heated - very weird.)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
