American foods that we miss

1) Genuine Maryland Crabcakes!
Being from Maryland, we miss the blue crabs. It’s in our blood. Imitations will not suffice. And it will be the first meal we will have when we land for “home leave” next year.

2) Silver Queen Corn
Ahhh…the sweetness of this delectable corn on the cob! There is corn here, but it’s not the same. In fact, most of the time it looks like yellow feed corn.  They have the gull to even advertise it as “sweet”. How dare they!

3) Dunkin’ Donuts Bavarian Cream Donuts!
Always been my favorite since my childhood and it’s especially a treat when they are in donut hole form! I can get a Tophen Krapfen here, but it’s not the same. Thank goodness for the other amazing pastries here to keep my taste buds occupied.

4) Chipotle’s Burrito Bowls!
Doesn’t that say it all? Actually, we miss Mexican food in general. Thankfully, we make tacos and Hubs makes a kick-ass guacamole that curbs the craving. And, if we are really desperate, we can hop on the plane to London. They have a few Chipotles.

5) A decent burger!
 We’ve found a decent place here, but there’s nothing like a Five Guys burger! Again, if we get desperate, we are just a hop,skip and jump to London. They just got their first Five Guys location!
