The kind of food that a locality produces is a reflection of their culture. If you like to travel a lot, you’ve probably tried most local food at your destination. But it’s always best to go local. Whether you are a newcomer or an old-timer in Cambridge, you have to try these out:
Chelsea Buns – this pastry is both sticky and sweet. It tastes even better with a scoop of ice cream. Some bakeries offer this in a pack, which makes for a great gift.
Scotch egg – another well-loved food is the scotch egg, made of soft gooey egg yolk, pork mix, and Japanese bread crumbs. Some cafes give the scotch egg a makeover during weekends and on special occasions.
Millionaire’s shortbread cup – who knew that toffee and chocolate would go well together? This shortbread is exactly just that. It goes well with tea or you can eat it during lunch.
Sausage rolls – rolled puff pastry and sausage meat makes for a filling meal. If you are in a hurry, you can easily finish one roll or more in one sitting. When you order for takeaway, do not forget for reheat because sausage rolls are best eaten when warm.
Fish and chips – a classic meal that has been regularly revamped, rehashed and improved. I would even say that it is comfort food for some, having grown up with it. Perhaps the reason we keep coming back for this is the batter that keeps getting better.
Gelato – when you want something cold and sweet, get a scoop of this. No other explanation needed.
Cheese toastie – who can resist biting into melted cheese in a bun? Though you may taste the burnt bread, the cheese, and the filling will make up for it. Critics say cheese toasties can make you feel warm and gooey inside.
Awaken the foodie in you. Make your trip to the city worthwhile by trying any of these foods.
