Sorry my friend, but bacon and eggs is as British as anything can be and can be found in all decent and good greasy spoon cafe's throughout the whole of the United Kingdom.
And it's REAL bacon.
Not in my experience. It may be called that, but it's not the same breakfast. usually there are tomatoes and the "bacon" is usually of the Canadian bacon variety, i.e.: thin slabs of pork. When it is the American variety, it is soggy and squishy, never crisp and the eggs are usually scrambled. It is what it is and I accept that, and I've also had some mighty good meals at the "Nag's Head," but I've never found a traditional recognizable bacon & eggs breakfast in England.

T-bone? That's the best cut of beef. The texture and flavor is unparallelled.
Aged 80 days.
2 inches thick.
But I'm convinced that they do this more to wind people up and to play up to an image that isn't really representative, but who knows?
we have a place called joe's crab shack here in south florida that does a boil similar to this..it's so damn good..i never had crawfish, but i would eat a hundred of'em..i know i would

Well I hope you get the chance to visit (btw, I have always wanted to visit England and Scotland, just places I have always felt drawn to.....beautiful countries)
I think everyplace has their "freaky foods" There was something I saw once called Hagis (spelling?).....I think it was a Scottish dish, correct me if I'm wrong. It looked horrible But many times, those are the very things which are the best once you try them. Just like here in New Orleans, we love our crawfish. It would repulse a lot of people, but they are soooo good! (see below)
They are spicy, but it is a very unique blend of seasoning.....and we throw in corn, sausage, mushrooms (anything really). It's one of those things you can't describe, it just has to be tried!
