I noticed, my stomach likes it too. I feel great after that meal vs. any other type of meat with oil, salt and spices. Not that I feel bad after latter but I quite often feel some sort of heaviness in my spare tyre. Not after the proper steak though
What I cannot stand in this country is curry. At least Indian/Bangladeshi/Pakistani variety
I tried it once in Japanese restaurant and it was completely different. Like a different meal altogether.
Food in Biritain and in UK in general is, in spite of what envious and cheap people say, excellent. Let me say, outstanding. You can go up, and be ready to separate yourself from your stash, or go simple, fish and chips and Pubs. A dreaming experience is in the families. Of course they have this climate that makes good vegs, and pastures for their wonderful meats. And being surrounded by cold water seas, their fishes and crustaceans are just the tastier. They lack wines. not a big problem if your roll is sizable.
Their breakfast, if they only decided to import sausages (and sausage) from their ex Colonies, is one of the most elevating experiences. You move around the country and explore how things follow climate and culture. That's why I am dieting. To get so slim that I can start all over again!
