"The Royal Snack"

"The best fish and chips in London is just around the corner from my flat, and it used to be Princess Diana's favorite place too," said my British friend Simon. To eat fish and chips was the first thing on my boyfriend's "to-do-list in London" during his first visit. He was so excited and dreamed about eating the Princess's snack. When we tried it we confirmed she was certainly a gourmet. Their fish and chips were brrrrrilliant!!! We relished the flavours there almost every day during our visit, standing at the bar by the window. We imagined how much salt and vinegar she sprinkled, or maybe she simply ate it with lemon juice. We cherished the illusion that we were very posh and graceful to eat such a "wicked" Royal Snack.
