British Tourist Goes To Cyprus, Orders A Full English And Is Disappointed
One of the joys and points of travelling is that you get to experience different flavours - who doesn't love an opportunity to try local cuisines, specific to the place you're staying in?
You know, you go to Germany and you might try some Bratwurst; you go to Denmark and you might try open sandwiches or herring; you go to France and - if you're feeling really adventurous - maybe you'll even try snails.
And, of course, you go to Cyprus and try... a full English breakfast?
That's what one very irate Reddit user did, sharing his disappointing experience on the website by posting a picture of the breakfast meal he received when he ordered a full English at an unnamed restaurant.
The British holiday maker usually enjoys those breakfasts at home - understandably, because they're absolutely delicious - but expecting them to be as good in a country where they're not a staple food seems like a long shot. Just ask anyone from Italy, Pakistan or Greece what they make of UK attempts at their home country's cuisine, and try not to walk away looking too red-faced.
Anyway, they're called full English breakfasts, not full Cypriot breakfasts. Ahem.
The photo, shared by Reddit user Spicerldn, shows a chopping board containing a frankfurter sausage, baked beans, what looks like slightly undercooked bacon, a single, fried egg and a tomato covered in seasoning. Oh and there was some salad garnish, too - not really in the spirit of the full English, that nod to healthy eating, but there we go.
To be fair, it doesn't actually look all that bad, but minds had already been made up.
"This is what's classed as a Full English Breakfast in Cyprus," wrote Spicerldn - and some other users felt his pain.
"There is so much wrong here..." commented user ilovebumbumbum (oh, ok), while TristansDad made a witty pun: "That's more like a Fool English breakfast!"
Not everyone thought his outrage was justified, though. ITMidget (ummm...) said: "Who the fuck goes to Cyprus and orders a Full English? You should have got a Full Cypriot and you have no hair on your pasty legs."
Bit harsh, but maybe they have a point in there somewhere...
