懷念小吃 Missing my snack

前幾天,我突然很想吃一個Greggs香腸卷(sausage roll),我想是有些掛念英國老家吧.

Greggs是一家有八十多年歷史的老餅店,在英國各地有超過1700間分店,比麥當勞或星巴克還要多. 它的人氣產品香腸卷超好吃,尤其當它新鮮出爐,看到都垂涎三尺。聽説Greggs每週售出超過二百五十萬條香腸卷即平均每間分店每天售出210條,它的受歡迎程度令英國人一提到香腸卷就會想到Greggs.

香腸卷是英國夏季野餐其中一種很受歡迎的食物.在炎炎夏日下,英國人一般都會凉吃。雖然我住在英國有一段時間,但我仍然認為香腸卷最好熱吃。當你咬入口時,外面鬆脆的酥皮融化在你的嘴裡,加上美味的香腸,那種口感不是涼吃能提供的。

有些人會覺得Greggs香腸卷可能不是很健康的食物,但它每一條只是£0.90约NTD43,偶然吃一(或兩)條作為小吃絕對會有超滿足的感覺。若有人可在台灣提供同樣美味的香腸卷,麻煩告知我。

The other day I suddenly yearned for a Greggs sausage roll, must be home sick kicking in.

Greggs is an eighty odd year bakery with over 1700 shops in UK, more than McDonalds or Starbucks. Their flagship product sausage roll, is in my humble opinion the most delicious, especially when they have just come out fresh from the oven. It has been claimed that Greggs sell over 2.5m sausage rolls a week, on average that’s 210 sausage rolls per store per day per, so much to the extent that some consider it to be part of the British institution.

Sausage rolls are a popular food in the British summer picnic basket, and the Brits tend to eat them cold. Although I’ve lived in UK for a long time, I still think sausage rolls are best eaten hot. As you bite into the filling, the flaky puff pastry on the outside melts in your mouth soaking up the juice from the succulent sausage meat . This is something that you won’t get from a cold sausage roll.

Greggs sausage rolls may not be the healthiest food, but at 90p each(NTD43) it works fine for me as a quick snack. If anybody finds an equally tasty sausage roll in Taiwan, please let me know.
