After the awesome tour of the massive cathedral, it was time for food. I had another half-day to go, so I might as well eat well. I found this across from my next destination - the Roman Museum. I decided to treat myself for a nice dish and perhaps a pint.

For some reason, after spending a whole day in Bath, I felt a craving for Thai food. I remember thinking how I must find Thai food, while strolling around looking for a restaurant. Then, I stumbled upon Thai Balcony, and thought I should give it a try. No surprise can ever be a disappointment, since you don't know what to expect.

I must admit I have double standards. By the time I left Liverpool, I had thrown my strict vegetarian diet out the window, because my time in the UK was so limited, I thought 'I simply HAD TO try the authentic English breakfast!' So, I did.

This was 'the last supper' in Liverpool. We came to Nando's because it was also my friend's last night in town. It was his favourite restaurant, as we celebrated his birthday here as well. READ MORE. What he loved about Nandos was, obviously, the chicken. But for me, it was the sangria.
這就是我在利物浦"最後的晚餐"。會選擇Nando's，是因為這也是我麻吉的最後一晚。而這又是他最愛的餐廳。他生日當天我們也是來這裡慶祝的。［點閱舊文］。他當然是喜歡這裡的雞肉餐。不過我喜歡的是他們的水果調酒 - sangria。

It's quite rare for Liverpudlians to not hear about Zizzi's. This Italian restaurant is located in the semi-outdoor shopping complex - Liverpool 1. The quality of their service and the food were both extremely satisfying. It was the perfect place for us to hold our 'dissertation hand-in' celebration.

This is a popular place among uni students. The reason is because, other than it's delicious food, the price is affordable to most students. I'm not sure what kind of cuisine you'd categorize Kimos as, but does it really matter? So long as the food is great, I think you're missing the point if you become too obsessed with categorizing the food they sell.

After one whole day of cruising around Cardiff, we both got hungry, for obvious reasons. Keep in mind that everything you have seen so far on Cardiff, were all done with in 'one single day'! So imagine how hungry we must had been by the time the day had ended!
So my mate asked me what I felt like having, and I thought, the best cuisine to have would be Thai food, seeing that we met, grew up, and went to school together in Chiangmai! It's already a miracle that we were meeting in far away UK. To top it all up, we are going to reminisce the taste of Thailand together!

Before we get into the castle, I'm going to give you all a treat. This is the English breakfast that we had before we went into the castle. As we just needed some morsel to last the morning, me and my mate, shared one portion. But you still get to see what a typical English breakfast consists of.

I've written about Chinese and Thai cuisine in the UK, but I think this is the first time I've written an article about Japanese cuisine in the UK. Aren't you curious about what Japanese food's like there?

Pascal, the owner of the guest house where we stayed, gave us too many ideas of places to dine for us to handle at the time. I do remember him recommending 'the best fish and chips' place, but I have to admit, I'm not certain if this is the one to which he was referring.
We came here after we had our drinks because we were both starving. We had saved so much money by bringing our own food, but by this time, we both ran out and craved for a full meal. What could two skints students have? What better choice is there other than the national dish - fish and chips? (Actually, I insisted on having fish and chips... )

'A cup of tea is the solution to every problem.' This is a quote from 'Doctor Who'. I had never imagined myself falling in love with English tea. The person who taught me how to drink tea the English way, was a French girl. When she came to visit me, she asked me, 'Have you learned to drink tea the English way?' She told me to add fresh milk and sugar to every cup of tea. That's the way you're supposed to drink it.
When you're feeling down, have a cup. When you're feeling over the moon, that's even more of a reason to have one. While coffee has become a daily routine, tea has become an enjoyment reserved only for special occassions.

Remember the meal on my flight over to Manchester? (published in this article) It was so delicious that once I'd had a bite, I'd forgot about all the tears I shed over saying farewell to my loved ones. Well, this time, I thought the meal would just be as good. After all, I've always had pleasant experiences with Thai Airways. I mean, what other airline is capable of offering the comfort from my second home other than this one? Well, so I thought.

『新四川』，又稱Chilli Chilli，是利物浦知名的中國餐館。名氣大的原因除了菜色之外，當然還有更重要的原因 - 二樓的KTV包廂！早在過農曆年的時候，有一位華裔朋友就邀約一群好友相伴來這吃飯唱歌。不巧那天正好有活動，所以錯過了晚餐。但還是趕的上唱歌。對於那次印象挺深刻的。因為西方人眼中的"karaoke"是鬧著玩的。而很不巧的，天仙那天點了一首國語歌，讓全場的外國人拍手叫好，然後驚覺說原來『歌，不是這樣唱低！！』。
不過拉回來今天的重點 - 這天朋友約了再來這兒聚餐。不過上回那位華裔朋友還沒回到利物浦。因此點餐他們得靠自己。原本我在猶豫要不要來，因為正好這天白天我上了整天班。沒一口答應是怕自己累了不想出門。不過下了班之後發現經歷還夠，加上飯還是得吃啊。所以就跟著去。我的好友之前在我還沒決定要不要去之前一直說我一定得去。原因是：只有我會點餐。我回說：不是都有英文的嘛？朋友回說：可是好料都在中文菜單裡啊。這時候我才發現，原來這攤我會被邀請的原因是這樣啊！(誤)

這間就是利物浦球隊副隊長卡拉格開的餐廳[分店]。卡拉格開的這間餐廳主旨是為了讓一家人能夠有個輕鬆看各類球賽的休閒餐廳。這間express算是比較小的分店。位於利物浦市中心的Liverpool 1。距離就在LFC Superstore不遠處。這天，天仙帶了兩個利物浦球迷來到這兒用餐。幸好兩位朋友心中有想來這間餐廳用餐的念頭。因為每次只要有朋友來，天仙最懊惱的地方就是不知道該帶去哪裡用餐才好呢。
This is Jamie Carragher's restaurant. He is the vice-captain of Liverpool Football Club. The theme of the restaurant is to provide a healthy and clean atmosphere for families to come and watch sports together. It is located in the city centre, in Liverpool 1. It's roughly about a two minute walk from the nearest Superstore, also in Liverpool 1. I brought two LFC fans to come dine here. It was a good thing they had this in mind, as I always have a hard time trying to figure out where to take my friends to dine when they come for a visit.

It took me such a long time to get to finally get to this article. After lagging for a month, I would have decided to ditch the article all together, but since I don't eat out much, I thought it best to keep it and wait till the right moment to write about this. S and I go way back since college. We were in the same department, but were in different classes. We had a similar upbringing. We were both brought up in Thailand, starting at pretty much the same age, then came back to Taiwan for college. There was also D that year, who had a similar background. The chairperson of the department that year decided that Freshman English might unsuitable for us three to attend, and asked us to meet at her office to discuss what to do to replace the compulsory credit for that course. Interestingly, when the chairperson introduced us, and learned that both S and I grew up in Thailand, she found out that we did not know each other until that very moment. Is the world big? Or small? For us to have grown up in the same country for ten years, one south, the other north, and not know of each others' existence until we come back to our native soil.

不過因為我選在禮拜一到曼城玩，所以E小姐她只能利用短暫的午休來陪我閒聊。於是我在十一點抵達後，自己先跑去Visitor Centre一探究竟，等到E小姐午休時間一到，就在走到我們約好的地方見面一起吃午餐。好巧不巧，E小姐說當天進辦公室，正好收到一張Pizza Express的2 for 1午餐優惠。於是我們就選在這兒解決午餐。雖然是連鎖店，但是餐廳裝潢挺不錯的。價目算是中等。平常我不可能會奢侈來吃這個，但是看在2 for 1的份上，£7-£8 的午餐，還算是可以接受的囉！

English people can be quite lazy sometimes. Even when they have nothing to do, or if they get so fed up with their dissertation, they wouldn't even think about getting a small group together for some fun. I sent off an email a couple of weeks ago to arrange this. After getting people's replies, I set out a date for us to meet and catch up. You should know by now, that it is only when I'm alone, when I'm more picky about where I go. If I'm with friends, I really don't mind where we go or what we do, unless of course, if it costs too much or if they intend to do something I have absolutely no interest in doing... ]
