During our last trip to England and Scotland I finally tried a few British classics such as treacle tart and sticky toffee pudding. As we were in Yorkshire and because we are huge Saturday kitchen fans, my friend Elly took us for a proper Sunday roast to the Adelphi in Leeds. It’s a really lovely classical British pub. The people working there are really relax and laid-back. It was a great way to finish our two days in Leeds.
Kristof and I both chose a pork Sunday roast.
We had a proper Sunday roast at the Adelphi as we never had one before. With gravy and crackling. James Martin would be proud of us. I loved the crackling and the Sunday roast was great.
Kristof and I don’t agree about the concept of Yorkshire pudding though. I thought it was okay, Kristof thought it was superfluous. But we both agreed that it wasn’t as special as we believed after seeing many episodes of Saturdag Kitchen. I bet James Martin will be less proud of us now 😉
Kristof had a proper hipster beer there, Smog Rocket. This beer should ‘remind people of the smoke stacks of industrial London’. He liked the beer a lot, but couldn’t get his head round the fact that he got canned beer, which remains a mortal sin for most Belgians.
