We're going to be in London in early to mid-April and, much to my surprise, I am contemplating trying haggis if it can be found (I may still chicken out; I know my wife will). Is there any "real" haggis to found in any London restaurant? As a follow-up, has anyone tried the dish and is it as "bad" as it sounds? If it tastes livery, I am out. Liver is one of the very few foods I just can't stomach.
Now: burgers. A coworker visited England in the mid 90s and had a hamburger. The burger was served in a company cafeteria and the company was located "out in the boonies". He described the burger as being more like a meatloaf, with unusual (to an American) condiments such as grilled tomatoes. Does this describe what is, or more likely used-to-be (if it ever was) a British hamburger? If it is/was somewhat a traditional burger, can such an animal be found now? If yes, any recommendations for a restaurant? I'm at least a bit suspicious that a company cafeteria just might have served something that wasn't typical? LOL Regardless, from seeing photos of burgers in online menus while researching our trip, I think the Brits could teach a thing or two to many American burger joints these days!
