London’s Favorite Snacks You Can Make at Home

They say that, out of all the cuisines in the world. Great Britain has the most unpleasant. Compared to their European neighbors, the French and the Italians, British cuisine is said to lack richness and flavor. However, not many will agree! British food has a certain kick to them that makes them mouth-watering to many. Some might even prefer them the more than the overwhelming European cuisines, spicy Latin American foods, and light Asian dishes. London, in particular, the foodie capital of the world, has its fair share of favorite snacks that you must try. Fortunately, some of them are easy to make in your own home!

Fish & Chips

Of course, this wouldn't be a list of London's favorite snacks if it doesn't have fish & chips on it. In fact, it wouldn't even be a Brtish list of snacks, period! That's how much they love this salty snack there! If there's one food that you can guarantee that you will absolutely find just about anywhere in the UK, it's fish & chips! For some reason, the strips of fried fish fillet work well with potatoes wedges or French fries. Though the latter is generally referred to as "chips" here. And if you have some fish and potatoes in your kitchen you can make a bag for yourself to see what the fuss is about!
