If you want really good English food
If you want really good English foodNo such thing exists.
Oh man, beef wellington. English food really does have an undeserved bad rap.
English cuisine may suffer from a relatively poor international reputation when compared to that of Italian cuisine or French cuisine. However, for many English people this perception seems outdated, for the poor reputation of industrially produced urban food in the twentieth century did not ever really represent the quality of food cooked in the home. Traditional English food, with its emphasis on 'meat-and-two-veg' falls squarely into the north European tradition extending from Northern Germany to the Low Countries and Scandinavia, albeit with a French influence.During the Middle Ages and Enlightenment, English cuisine enjoyed an excellent reputation; its decline can be traced back to the move away from the land and increasing urbanisation of the populace during the Industrial Revolution. During this process Britain became a net importer of food. British food also suffered heavily from effects of rationing during two World Wars (food rationing finally ended in 1954), followed by the increasing trend toward industrialised mass production of food. However, in Britain today there is a renewed fascination with the culture of food popularly led by celebrity chefs who seek to raise the standard of food understanding in the UK.
Beef wellington is really good, but I've found most English food to be incredibly bland, and I really enjoy tasting my food, so it's kind of a waste of money if I'm gonna go out to eat.

Countries with poor agriculture often translates to bland cuisine.

I've been told by actual English people that The Old Toad in Rochester is legitimately authentic, but I didn't particularly enjoy the fish 'n' chips I had there
Momofuku's Noodle Bar is my first stop if and when I get to NYC this summer.
Their chicken tikka masala is pretty good too (a true English dish!)
