Marketplace (part of Cold Storage group) sells some "english" sausages, e.g., Cumberland. The bacon they sell is not great. Why not try the Butcher at Holland Village www.thebutcher.com.sg or the Swiss Butcher at Greenwood Avenue.

Espirito Santo is a Brazilian butcher/deli with great meats - there is one at Parkway Parade and also Great World City www.espiritosanto.com.sg

As for other English fayre, not sure what you would want that you can't find, apart from pork pies. :D

Kristie,

I not sure what you problem is here. You obviously saw the emoticons (2) at the end of my statement. One denoted "Razz" or taking the mickey as it is sometimes called. Other call it taking the P*ss!. The other was a wink confirming it was tongue in cheek. Which emoticon didn't you understand?

Anybody else would have seen the humour in the logic behind "Health" or healthy food and English food which is generally very heavy & fattening. Lighten up.

:roll: (you understand this one?)

I do not have a problem..... and actually english food is not all fish and chips.. we actually do have some healthy foods...
All i was asking for was some help so i did not see the need to have a sarcastic remark.. maybe you never realised that it was but believe me it was.... I just wanted some advice and all i seemed to get from you was smart ass remarks.. next time i will check where i post my comments and i will try and make sure i do not upset the applecart!
I got the emoticons just not sure why you would wanna take the "razz" or "p#ss" out of someone who just wanted a little advice...
And b4 u say anything... no i am not touchy.. just cannot understand the manner u came back at.. all u had to say was sorry was not taking the p#ss was just tongue in cheek and maybe i would not have gotten so testy... but hey ho... i guess only living here 1 week and suffering from jetlag then maybe i am i a tad touchy... so excuse me! :roll:
:P :wink: am sure u get them as i did

Ah Kristie, just ignore sms, he likes playing with newbies. He's a good ole boy really. :D

Happy to help however I can - just ask all those seemingly daft questions and I'll try to answer.
