At the conclusion of a short British food tour, my friends and I wandered into Myers of Keswick. This place is a grocery store of sorts, that specializes in British imports of all types. Canned foods, dry foods, soft drinks, candy, etc. But they also have a gorgeous deli case with fresh foods, and they’re known for their meat pies.
First we broke into the steak & ale pie, which was my favorite of the two we tasted on site.
Absolutely perfect, buttery, flakey crust. Deliciously tender, juicy beef and gravy inside. Awesome.
Next up was the curry lamb pie. This was beautiful.
It, too, was masterful, with great spices and flavors.
For dessert, a scone with clotted cream and jam. So British! It actually reminded me of the creamed cheese and jelly sandwiches that I used to eat as a kid, only much better.
I really enjoyed this stuff. I even took a pork pie home to heat up later on.
