Blooming onion in London?
If anyone knows, chowhound will know... Where in London (or anywhere even vaguely close to London) can I find a blooming onion? One of the deep fried cholesterol ridden beauties? Any ideas?
I had one at the Texas Embassy Cantina a few years back: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pug... but (a) it was pretty terrible (still raw in the middle) and (b) it doesn't seem to be on their menu any more: http://www.texasembassy.com/foods.html
However it might be worth asking them!
My impression is that they're becoming something of a dying breed in the US, too -- seems like fewer places offer them. Outback of course, because it's one of their signature items -- but I didn't see too many of them on menus when I was in the States this winter.
