A friend who lives in New York who visited London after many years was amazed at the improvement in the quality of restaurant food.
Traditional British food can be pretty good done right. When I first took my Sri Lankan wife to live in Britain she really loved things like roast chicken with gravy and Brussels sprouts. From her point of view they were an exotic novelty.
@jecasc, not just the empire: 10% of British citizens live abroad. The town I live in has lots.
