Pork Belly Pate Pan Fried Fillet of Sea Bream

Pan-Fried Fillet of Sea Bream

We arrived in the city of Bath early Friday afternoon. It was the end of the road for me while other members of the group continued on their extended tour of England. My flight back to the U.S. was scheduled Saturday, the following day.

Our tour guide hosted a farewell dinner in honor of those of us heading back home. Several choices were offered for the three-course meal. I had Pork Belly Pate for appetizer, Pan-Fried Fillet of Sea Bream for entrée, and Creme Brulee for dessert as shown above. I enjoyed it as much as it was free. Ok, I was only kidding. It was actually very good.

Bath is well-known for its ancient Roman-built baths. Since I visited it more than 10 years ago, it has undergone a facelift for good or bad depending on who you talk to. As I walked around, I noticed modern developments here and there including the new mall and bus station. I guess nothing can hold back the march of time. Everything has to succumb to it sooner or later. Still, it remains a beautiful city and worth putting in your bucket list.

JC's Kitchen

Lastly, at Terrace Walk, near the Roman Baths, I encountered the familiar smell of Filipino food. It was coming from JC’s Kitchen considered the best street food in town. Too bad, I was already booked for dinner. Hopefully, I could get a chance to try it on my next visit. .

Steak with Grilled Broccolini
Location: Penzance, West Cornwall, England


Steak with Grilled Broccolini

Upon arrival in Penzance, our tour guide treated us for dinner at the restaurant in the hotel where we stayed. From the menu, I selected English steak and grilled broccolini with garlic butter sauce.

Did I say English steak? Yes, I did, simply because we were in England. Honestly, I can’t distinguish English steak from any other kind of steak for that matter. I’m not that sophisticated.

Anyway, I think I made the right choice. It was great and cooked to perfection. I left the plate clean like a good boy.

We stayed in Penzance for three days visiting popular attractions in Cornwall including the Lanhydrock House and Gardens, Land’s End Landmark, St. Ives, and St. Michael’s Mount. From there, we drove 212 miles to Bath, famous for its ancient Roman-built baths.

Vegetarian Risotto
Location: Chagford, England


Vegetarian Risotto

Risotto is a traditional dish from northern Italy. It’s made out of rice simmered until it’s thick and creamy. I didn’t expect to have it for dinner in Chagford, a remote village in southern England, but there it was staring at me from the menu.

It was a vegetarian dish that used Arborio rice and topped with locally grown veggies. It was good and cooked to perfection that I didn’t have to use the extra cream on the side.

For those like Anthony Bourdain who, when they get hungry, things have to die, no hope is lost. Risotto can also come with meat such as beef, chicken, or sausage.

We stayed in Chagford for three days and used it as a base for exploring the Dartmoor National Park and nearby tourist attractions.

The Dartmoor National Park is every hiker’s delight covering an area of 368 square miles. As the largest stretch of moorland in the southwest, it offers prehistoric monuments, medieval stone-slab bridges, hardy breed of wildlife and animals, marshy bogs, patches of heather and gorse in flower and exposed granite hilltops called tors.
