mmm.... bacon  
Is there a difference between Irish bacon and British bacon?

I think Irish rashers are nicer (she said, unpatriotically). I find (or have found recently) that British bacon is too salty.

Also, the following Irish foodstuffs are far superior(in my experience):
Black/white pudding (white pudding is rare in England)
Crisps (apart from Pickled Onion Monster Munch, natch)
Chinese take aways.

The Brits win at
Doner kebabs
Fish n chips
Indian food in general
Fizzy pop (though I can get Vimto here now, huzzah!)

Says a lot about British cuisine doesn't it?

OT I've only just realised that Robson of Robson & Jerome was in GoT t'other week.

Funny. I find Orish bacon saltier than English :p

Yes to most of the others, except I happen to think Red Lemonade is nicer than any English fizzy drink.
