Whenever I went to England, I had this unreasonable urge to eat Fish & Chips. It's such an English icon, and every time, I thought it might be tastier and more satisfying. And every time, it wasn't.
Yet, I still have fond memories of them, because if I was in London, I was doing something really fantastic and experiencing something really cool. In situations like that, I'm okay with really bland Fish & Chips.
