When it comes to the topic of travelling, one of the important aspects to consider would be the culinary delights that the traveler would be able to sample. While we have already established Cambridge as a city rich in culture and history, let’s take a look at its culinary aspect.
As Cambridge has always played a very important role as a hub of trade and commerce, it only made sense that there would be a wide variety of flavors and ingredients that would pass through the area. The locals surely made good use of these and incorporated them into the usual UK fare that they were used to. Mind you delicacies do not automatically mean something exotic! We are referring to any fare that those that live in Cambridge will swear up and down that you surely must try while you are there.
If you have ever needed anything to bring you out of a massive hangover, the jacket potato will definitely do the trick. It is a heavenly mixture of cheese, beans, and sausage, and other slices of meat all stuffed into a nice baked potato skin. Don’t let the description overwhelm you. It is actually quite manageable.
As there are a lot of variations of this particular fare, we suggest that you hustle over to Tatties to sample their jacket potato.
If you have a sweet tooth, this is something that you will not dare miss. The Chelsea buns that they serve in Fitzbillies will be unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. A bun that is equal parts super soft and super gooey will surely leave a long lasting and positive impression upon your palate.
A Full English
What would a trip to the UK without having a full English breakfast? A typical serving has beans, bacon, eggs, muffin, sausage, toast, butter, and a serving of coffee—who could ask for more? Be sure to try it out at different places as they tend to have their own variations of the full English.
Food is an ever important aspect that will determine the quality of your memories 10 years down in the road. While you may not be able to remember every detail of your trips, there is always a huge guarantee that you will always attribute a certain flavor or meal to a certain place. Cambridge is a place that has a lot of spots for foodies and the adventurous!
