The British Aisles

There are beautiful things in London, but they are not at the Tate, Nation Gallery, or even Madame Tussaud’s (okay, great Mdm., Robbie’s back, now shut up.) They are in the aisles of Tesco and Safeway. Within these haloed shrines of sustenance of which I speak are affordable meals.
Yeah, okay, so a pre-packaged sandwich, cookies, and bottle of flavored mineral water aren’t high dining, but for about 3 quid, you’re not going to find a better deal. And that really is a problem when you’re out and about in Westminster. Compared to Croatia, where a full dinner for four costs USD $25, London will make you pay that much just for the entre of one person. It adds up quick, let me tell you.
Admittedly, there isn’t all that much fine dining in London and anything that you eat which is really good, is most likely not originating from the Isles, which is why you should go to these other aisles. Unlike the pre-packaged stuff in the USA, I actually like the food there. It seems they use, well, food to make things there and not some 35-syllabled chemical that simulates food.
You may find it to be lowbrow to do this, but if you stop by a Tesco or Safeway between 11:30 and 14:00, you’ll find plenty of Londoners doing the same thing. Now, if I could just find the flavored bottle water here that they have over there, but I bet the flavor comes from something that’s ultimately carcinogenic (it’s soooo good) so maybe it’s for the better.
