Anyway, last time i saw his mother, she told me that last time she went there (she goes as soon as she finds low cost flights in winter when she doesn't work), she tasted fish and chip, tikka masala, puddings (which she wasn't fond of), shepherd's pie, ecc. Next time she comes, i will give you a more detailed answer

As for my friend, i won't pretend what he ate is actually British cuisine, he was in some kind of college for summer camp and the cuisine there was awful but the times he went on daytrips and he had the chance to eat a decent meal (most of the time they headed to the first McD they saw), he found the cuisine decent.

It seems that conclusions seem to be coming from stereotyping like I thought, I would be interested to know what restaurant this is he works at and exactly what ethnic British food they serve, I may go and check it out, there is more to British food than fish and chips!! (which traditionally is a street / takeaway food).

Of course, they went into pubs or takeaways as they were looking for cheap food. As for the restaurant they work in, it isn't a takeaway place (from the way she talkedd it's actually quite expensive), i'll let you know as soon as possible
