Tommo Food, Fun

Goulash and cabbage. That’s what my 1990’s geography education had instilled in my brain to expect as the highlight of Budapest. Whatever cold war government propaganda had filled those classroom textbooks, even if there was some truth to it… It’s not true anymore and it massively misses the mark on what has now become my favourite city in Central Europe.

There is plenty of fun poked at UK food. But is it really that bad? And what the hell is “UK food” anyway? Growing up in Australia I had heard plenty about the motherland – England. My grandparents migrated in the late 50’s, and much of Aussie and British culture is honestly very similar. But, there are aspects that are very different. I had heard many stories of the cold winters, the …

This is one of the holy grails of strange food. The thing that amazed me most was that these are not a rare, impossible to find delicacy.
