  pukka pie and chips, Olney, England
by marinarena

Favorite thing: You're trip in Italy is not complete without having pizza and indeed your trip in England is inadequate without indulging in fish and chips. I stopped in Olney at Mario's for some and they were as I expected. The fish was a perfect crispy and was not extremely greasy. Surely at some places, the batter grease is overwhelming.

At Marios, I also had a pukka pie. I was so curious to try it as I was thinking I had never had it before. However after one bite I realised that it was just the glorified Brit version of pot pie(as we know it in America!).
