    Well, tonight on the way home from a day-trip I stopped at a biker bar in West Virginia and ate, I kid you not, a beer-battered bratwurst and Caribbean jerk nachos complemented by several bottles of Pabst. Does this make me a bad person?

    A real man, you are.

    In London battered sausage is common feat. in 'fish and chip shops'.

    Is it just as disguting as the stateside battered sausage? I honestly couldn't think of a less appealing combination of textures. But, I guess...now I know.

    Isn't it named Toad in a Hole or something?

    I am just moving to the UK, so learning about the food.

    The English seem to have lots of A and B food.

    Fish and Chips,
    Bangers and Mash
    Bubble and Squeak

    The list goes on

    No, Toad in the Hole is sausage baked in yorkshire pudding mix, often served with gravy.
    Battered Sausage is different.

    Although I'm not a fan of pub food, if I'm having lunch at a pub, Steak Pie is what I'd go for.
    Where in the UK are you going to live?

    Don't tell me... a la Beaujolais... yucky... [​IMG]
    Some beaujolais can be surprisingly good, like a Morgon from Marcel Lapierre, given you like lighter wines: very fruit forward, carbonic maceration, sulfate free, the usual "organic" stuff.

    I'll certainly try the Morgon. However, I wouldn't say I like lighter wines, what gave you that impression?

    I placed a layer of diced cherry tomatoes and lightly sauteed spinach along with some smoked mozarella between two pounded-flat chicken breasts. Liberally seasoned and very lightly oiled, baked for an hour. Absolutely delicious. I wish I had more now, for lunch.

    Yes, I do like I steak pie to. I guess that pub food is bit of a novelty for me. When I was living in the Netherlands, there was no such thing for a quick bite.

    I am moving to Oxford. Doing some graduate studies. Will also be spending some time in London as my girlfriend has a place on the south bank.

    Will be interesting

    By South Bank, I assume you mean Lambeth Bridge sort of area? I'm in Belgravia, perhaps we can meet up for a drink when you are in town.

    There are a number of 'cru' Beaujolais, for lack of a better word, appellations: Morgon, Fleurie, etc. (5 or 6?) - nothing nouveau about these. Check out the producer Pierre Chermette if you're able...
