    English Food/Restaurants Bangkok

    I have never eaten in an english restaurant nor have I ever eaten food that I knew to be English, Irish, etc. I am only familiar with the southern cooking of USA and asian foods.

    Where should I go to eat?

    What should I order?

    Recipe's are very welcome.

    What is the main difference between American cooking and English?

    Whatever else you can think of.

    The main differance is that English people do not eat raw babies, infact they dont even eat cooked babies, also KFC and McDonalds are not considered culinary delights in the UK, but apart from that the Obese yanks eat about 700 kiloes more food than your average Brit in a normal week

    Try the Sunday buffet at The Huntsman (basement of The Landmark Hotel, near Nana). Excellent traditional English Sunday Lunch.

    If you want a wider range of food, I recommend The Barbican on Soi Thaniya (Silom). This is one of the nicest 'English' pubs you will find in Asia.

    Just tried the burger at The Dubliner, what a crap !
    I choosed the one with the tomatoes, but those where not found anywhere around the plate, just the french fries were acceptable...
    The burgers was minced much to fine, the orange color of this bonded piece of artificial meat was horrific...AVOID, or this may be the Dublin taste for it...


    The Ye Olde Bell near Ambassador had fantastic home made burgers, that's where i headed to, but the place only opens around 4 pm...

    I think burger is typical food in Pubs, and pubs are mostly english places...
    I had fanstastic home made burgers in Pubs in England...

    By the good links of 12 Call he once gave this one :

    Buntersfoodsbkk.com

    It is actually out of order (the website), the guy missed to renew it on october 4 as it says...

    I gave this link to one english pub owner, he is quite happy of the service and says, yes they do real english sausage...

    He may have quite a good choice of english cuisine stuff....I think it is a butcher, dunno where he is in Bkk and if he runs a restaurant also...

    The Dubliner is an Irish Pub, as Dublin is the capital of Ireland.

    On a somewhat related note, I noticed that my local supermarket in China Town,Texas now has a small British food section. I was rather under the impression that escaping the food was the primary reason that Brits fled the island in the first place

    Ah, but this whole thread begs the question as to what exactly IS English food?

    I believe that true English cuisine died some time in the 17th or 18th centuries. Modern English food is what most people now think of when they consider pie and mash, fish and chips, and, let's not forget, proper Indian curries - for they are far more English than Indian.

    General opinion seems to be that you won't find much that is good in Bangkok, but there are one or two exceptions noted above. On the whole, you just can't get the right ingredients. It's a bit like Thai food in England. It tastes OK, but most of it is made with substitutes for the real ingredients you find here. Most fresh herbs and vegetables just don't export, in either direction. That said, for anyone who lives in North London, there's the fantastic Asian supermarket in Colindale that imports fresh Thai herbs, seafood and other exotic goodies.

    Authentic English food is stuff like rabbit, hare,wild boar and the like, which is really difficult to find in England, let alone in Thailand. Rich sauces are essential to hide the fact that the meat was usually off. Green vegetables and root veg are also essential, along with herbs such as rosemary, thyme, sage and dill. Imports from the New World transformed English cuisine, but sadly we are renowned for the shitty stuff we have exported into the world, rather than for the excellent grub we once enjoyed.
    The truth is out there, but then I'm stuck in here.
