Food that I miss in London
There are 3 important food related stuff that I miss here, and probably some of them I could replace or find them. So what I really miss from Bucharest is:
a. the tap water. I was drinking tap water at home, I was buying it also, but I didn’t mind drinking tap water. The tap water from here gave me stomach aches. Really bad stomach aches. I don’t know how’s the water in London, but I was told that it is good. For me is bad. And I’m not picky at all. So, I miss the tap water…
b. the bread from the corner. Actually, I find bread quite expensive in London and I haven’t find in my neighborhood a bread shop. Most of the bread tastes the same. I don’t really like it. So I miss the Romanian bread.
c. cheese & sausages. The ones from locals. Actually, I miss Obor. And its goodies. Period.
So…. I miss some food even there are more options than in Bucharest. But fortunately I found some yogurts that I really love. And burgers when I go out. And the street food from Camden and Portobello (the one from Borough is over rated). And my favorite fruit – mangosteen.
Actually, I remembered sarmale and piftii, but those I ate only when I went to mom’s home so is quite different…
