Jacket potatoes are probably the closest thing to street food in England. These are hot spuds with toppings of your choice. The potatoes are huge – it’s more than a size of a man’s fist and rather filling, with all the carbs inside.
I had one during a particularly chilly day in autumn. There are a lot of fillings to choose from – I went with bacon and cheese.
The cost of your jacket potato depends on what you want on it, but usually costs about 4-5 pounds or so (about RM 20+).
The jacket potatoes is put into an oven and toasted to melt the cheese and although it may be a simple dish, it’s comfort food – perfect for the cold weather. 🙂
