Good food is served in London and at least a dozen other places in Britain. That is, unless you prefer Indian food, which you can get on every street corner. English breakfast is egg and bacon. Lunch is a packet of crisps and a soft drink. Dinner is unspecified meat, boiled a few hours, with boiled cabbage without herbs or spices. A tasteless, brown goo-like substance called gravy covers up any trace of taste accidentally left in the meat. It doesn't matter what sort of meat was used to begin with, because it all tastes the same when the dinner is ready. Note that the difference between sauce and gravy is that sauce has a taste, while gravy simply covers the food in an unspecified, brown substance.
