Working in the travel industry, I have an opportunity and obligation to see the world. Though most of my travels last only a day or two at a time, I manage to swig an espresso (or three) and get on with the party. Follow me as I shamelessly devour the foods of the land, (over)indulge in the local beer and wine, and discover new cities with old friends.

We flew into
Gatwick and had a flight to JFK from Heathrow, so we took a taxi to the next
airport. I wouldn’t recommend this. Find another way, something has to be cheaper than an hour-long taxi
ride. We thought we would have time on our layover to grab a traditional
English meal in London but we wound up going straight to the airport instead.
Thankfully, we found a pub near our gate in Terminal 4. The Dining Street
Restaurant served exactly what we needed. First, we had a sampler of potato chips and fried
dough with curry filling accompanied by three dipping sauces. I drank a pint of
Spitfire, a hoppy Kentish ale.I felt it
was an appropriate choice considering my meat pie had a Spitfire gravy on top.
The meat pie was the standout dish. Also, the bangers and mash were delicious,
with a hint of cloves. Overall, I couldn’t ask for a better layover spot to get
some authentic pub fare.
