Myers of KeswickBy Elizabethwix
I want every single food item in Myers of Keswick....
... which looks exactly like shops used to when I was a child in England -- utterly old-fashioned and charming
It's not that the things always taste that wonderfully good --though some doit's more the familiarity of them --the brand names one recognizes.How can an ex-pat live without Marmite, one asks oneself?
And the sweets! No wonder English people have the reputation for having awful teeth. All the candy pictured above is really good. I particularly recommend the wine gums which are like much tougher Gummy Bears ---sort of.....
Now to the bangers and back bacon and clotted cream and all sorts of pies.....steak and kidney. YUM!
This window makes me laugh. Here we have royalty and a wedding --very classy and suitable -- and then vulgar post cards and pins. Oddly,England is a bit like that: a mixture of the tasteful and utterly tasteless.
So a last glance --more royalty and then TEAthe most important of beverages (not counting BEER).
Myers is on Hudson Street around 12th Street.
