5 brit gyorséttermi étel, ami jobb, mint az amerikai társaik! 

Here are 5 fast foods Britain does better than the US. When one thinks about grabbing a quick bite in Great Britain, fish and chips comes to mind. However, the nation offers a wealth of stellar options, and many that aren’t available – or just aren’t as good – on this side of the pond. Here are 5 fast foods Britain does better than the US.

Number 1. Posh Takeaway. Fast doesn’t have to be synonymous with fried, and there are numerous outposts in England that make that quite evident. From ruby mackerel served withlentil salad to pork chili with apples, carryout restaurants like Leon in London close the gap between quick service and gourmet eats.

Number 2. Savory Pies and Pasties. It’s unclear why meat and veggies enveloped in a buttery, flaky crust never made it big on the US fast food scene, but that’s not Britain’s problem. That nation is overflowing with them. Notable sellers include Square Pie, West Cornwall Pasty Company, and Greggs.

Number 3. Curry. Brits drop a great deal on takeout, and quite often the money is spent on curry, one of the country’s most popular dishes. There’s no shortage of places to get it on the fly. A Yelp search for curry joints that serve food hot and fast pulls up over 3,000 results for London alone.

Number 4. Bacon Rolls. So simple, yet so brilliant. Delicious bacon nestled between two doughy slabs of bread. Sauce is standard, but which one is up to the person eating it. The sandwich is so popular in the UK even McDonalds and Burger King have it on their menus.

Number 5. Battered Sausage. Why have a corn dog when battered and deep fried sausage is an option? The only downside is they’re served without a stick, but you could always bring your own.
