Trying a typical English snack in Garfunkel's, London

The billboard of Garfunkel's restaurant located on 429 Strand says it all: "Traditional Fish & Chips hand battered in London Pride beer". This is one of the dishes we would like to taste. Inside, the bar had a cool look with many beers and decorated with Union Jack banners. The beer from the draught is London Pride but next to it we see our own Belgium brand Stella Artois.

Here comes the food. We tried the Fish & Chips, a meat pie and fried shrimps. It is not the haut cuisine but we had to try a typical English snack. It was a nice culinary adventure.

Het reclamebord van Garfunkel's restaurant gelegen op 429 Strand spreekt voor zich: "Traditionele Fish & Chips handgepanneerd en gekookt in London Pride bier". Binnen had de bar een leuke uitstraling met vele biertjes en versiert met Union Jack vlaggen. Op de tap zagen we de London Pride naast ons eigen Belgische merk, Stella Artois. 

Hier komt het eten. We namen de Fish & Chips, een vleestaart en gebakken garnalen. Het was inderdaad geen culinair hoogstandje maar we wilden dan ook een typische Engelse snack uitproberen. Het was een leuke ervaring.

  1. A real English Pub! And for a Pub, this is fancy. All the dishes are what we call "Bar Food". They look very good, especially the pie.I love fish & chips!
