Watch as American tourist, 26, tries classic British food for the first time – and gives his verdict on a Greggs sausage roll
An American tourist who had never tried British food before was left in disbelief after trying a Greggs sausage roll – giving it a 9.8/10.
David Turek, 26, from Chesapeake, Virginia, has documented himself eating the classic British food for the first time and his reaction to the savoury pastry snack is priceless.
A video shows David taking the meat-filled pastry out from the classic paper bag and his eyes lighting up as he takes a bite.
‘Holy s***!’ he says, as he shakes his head in disbelief, before adding ‘9.8 out of 10, that’s f***ing lovely’.
David recorded videos of himself also trying a bacon butty, fish and chips and crumpets, to the delight of British people online.
Many reacted to his videos saying they wish they could re-live the moment they tried these dishes for the first time.
One comment read: ‘That is EXACTLY the reaction I was waiting for,’ while another added ‘we’re all living our first tastes again through you’.

‘I thought it would be nice to do the same thing but trying British food.
‘My favourite British food so far, if we’re talking strictly British, I would say fish and chips.
‘That meal was absolutely sensational, and I haven’t really experienced anything like that in the US.’
David was also surprised when he tried his first Sunday roast.
He had researched the meal and was not excited about it due to it being ‘food drenched in gravy which didn’t sound that great’.
David was also surprised when he tried his first Sunday roast, which he did not expect to be as tasty after finding out it was drenched in gravy
Although he enjoyed the crumpets, his favourite British food so far was classic and staple dish fish and chips
But after trying it in a local pub in Wales, he was taken aback by the traditional meal.
David thinks the quality of food in the UK is much higher than it is across the pond, but he draws the line at Marmite and black pudding.
‘The worst British food I’ve eaten has to be between Marmite and black pudding,’ he said.
‘I honestly get sick just thinking about it, especially the Marmite.’
