(Newser) – Elvis Presley's daughter, donning an apron to serve fish and chips in a quiet English village? Yep, and that's how she likes it, the New York Daily News reports. Having moved to Rotherfield with her husband two years ago, Lisa Marie Presley enjoys hanging out at a local pub run by two of her friends. So when they asked her to help sell food from a van, she was game. "We were laughing because the customers didn't know it was her," says one of the pub owners. "She really enjoyed it.”

What's more, Presley says she prefers the friendly Brits to "self-absorbed" Californians. "I lived in the same neighborhood [in California] for 17 years, and I didn't even know a neighbor," she told the BBC. "When I moved here, I was getting notes and flowers. That's what I love about it. It's simple, it's not flash, it was a quality of life I needed."
