Fish & chips

It was first marketed as a food dish in “take away”. It has become the most popular English dish. This dish is composed by muffled and fried hake.

Roast Beef

Another famous dish is “roast beef”.
If you are going to ask for it in a restaurant the question that the waiter will make will be: “do you want it rare, medium or well done?"

Other typical food in London

High tea

High Tea is often a misnomer. Most people refer to afternoon tea as high tea because they think it sounds royal and lofty, when nowadays high tea, or "meat tea" is dinner. High tea, in Britain, at any rate, tends to be on the heavier side. American hotels and tea rooms, on the other hand, continue to misunderstand the term and offer tidbits of fancy pastries and cakes on delicate china when they offer a "high tea."
Afternoon tea (because it was usually taken in the late afternoon) is also called "low tea" because it was usually taken in a sitting room or withdrawing room where low tables (like a coffee table) were placed near sofas or chairs generally in a large withdrawing room. There are three basic types of Afternoon, or Low Tea:

Cream Tea : Tea, scones, jam and cream

Light Tea : Tea, scones and sweets

Full Tea : Tea, savories, scones, sweets and dessert.

In England, the traditional time for tea was four or five o'clock and no one stayed after seven o'clock. Most tea rooms today serve tea from three to five o'clock. The menu has also changed from tea, bread, butter and cakes, to include three particular courses served specifically in this order:

Savories : Tiny sandwiches or appetizers

Scones :Served with jam and Devonshire or clotted cream

Pastries : Cakes, cookies, shortbread and sweets.

Ploughman lunch
The ploughman's is a simple meal consisting of the traditional ingredients of cheese, bread, butter and pickles. Every pub chef will have his or her own version of what constitutes a ploughman's and there are many variations, some better than others.
