The Mixed Grill, in a south Bristol pub.

Rather like a Full English breakfast really – but with chips, peas, onion rings and more types of meat –  and usually downed later in the day.  Although, having said that, I could certainly have a go at this for breakfast – and especially so if the morning were bitterly cold and I had little planned for later in the day other than sitting beside a fire with a few, contemplative glasses of whisky.

So, what is here?  Ah, the steak sits atop the gammon, which sits atop the chicken, which sits atop the (really not at all bad) sausages.  So not a meal for vegetarians then.  But also eggs, half a grilled tomato, and the other, aforesaid vegetables.  All downed with lashings of salt, pepper and tomato sauce.  And all aided and abetted by a steak knife – for practical purposes of course, but also to enhance the atmosphere of delicious and almost ritualistic hedonism.

And all washed down with a couple of pints of just about adequate, cold lager – well, you can’t have everything and, still, this was a “A Good Plateful” and, even just looking at the picture,  I for one can still feel the vibrations.

      LOL!!! >>> not for the faint hearted … and, being honest, there have been times when pub managers / waiters / waitresses have arrived to clear the plates / debris left after the feast and, shocked, exclaimed “You’ve eaten it all!!!” but, well, you know, they’re young …. 😉 …..

      And in a week or so, I’m due for another such repast … I can already feel the vibrations … 🙂 …


  2. That might make it worthwhile to endure your legendary cold and damp. The southern US has its own unique regional meals to compete with this.

    Here it entails a deep fryer. Drop in whatever, wait until it bobs around, then eat….with hot sauce. You can fry chicken, steak, Converse sneakers… doesn’t matter once it’s crispy.

      Hahaha! >>> Ted, I LOVE “your legendary cold and damp”!!!!! Very true, although climate instability appears to be upon us. But I also love your description of southern US food – fried crispy and eaten with hot sauce sounds wonderful! Adrian 🙂
