Baker Street Greasy Spoon

Elderly ladies enjoy a chip and a chat at one of the greasy spoons on Baker Street. For the uninitiated: This is not the height of British cuisine by any means but it's certainly filling and satisfying enough when you're craving carbohydrates. When I first started working in London, it was customary to go down to the Angel Inn and have "lard" every Friday lunch. My colleagues would have, for lunch, eggs, beans, toast, sausages and bacon on a huge plate. And it would only cost 3 or so. Wash it all down with some Sprite imported from Estonia or Espana and a mug of coffee, et voila! Enough calories consumed to last you through the weekend! Greasy spoons also cater for us vegetarians - baked potatos, chips, veggie burgers, baked beans and bagels.
