London has been subject to jokes over the years when it comes to cuisine, with fare pegged as bland and boring. And while we wouldn't want to project the outcome of some international competition, it IS only fair play to let you know that there are numerous wonderful places to eat in this grand old town, that you don't have to be bored by what's on your plate, and that (in fact) you might be in for a few tasty surprises. For example, while this is often regarded as a Scottish breakfast entree, Londoners "Full English Breakfast" usually includes baked beans. With toast, sausage, bacon, and eggs, the bean thing could stun the American diner, but it actually does work as a breakfast item and is delicious! Fish and chips in London are a definite "must try," and are vastly superior in quantity and flavor when compared to the fast food ilk. Also, as with many cosmopolitan cities, London boasts an incredible variety of ethnic cuisine, and there's nothing shoddy whatsoever about those restaurants specializing in Middle Eastern cooking and Italian dishes! We've reviewed a few venues in the Dover area for sake of your convenience, however, we do strongly suggest that you dine in London!
