    The fact that a grilled cheese is fried would confuse my fellow countrymen, I think. And even if they think they're translating from American to English, they'd think a "Grill" is what they'd call a barbecue; and while the idea of a barbecued cheese sandwich is appealing, it's not what you'd get.

      Shepherd's Pie.

      I had one today in the pub that's the adjunct to the Premier in Clifton, York.

      Very disappointing.

      Very little lamb in it, but the mash and cheese topping were ok.

      Bloke on next table ordered the same, and, when I asked him, he averred the same too.

I just have to see one or think of one and I want one. It is only the fact that I have last night's curry to eat tonight that is stopping me from having one now.
          You are killing me dude.......

            It's like the pronunciation of Houston Street or the use of Avenue of the Americas.

                    Button.

                    Chinese.

                    Large flats.

                    It doesn't matter

                    Either raw or fried, mushrooms are the food of the Gods.

                        Cullen Skink.

                        Impossible to get a decent version in London. Mebbes an Embra visit is on the cards.

                          Also, Omelette Arnold Bennett. There was a place in Crystal Palace (of all places) that did an absolutely amazing one, but which now seems to be defunct.

                              I really don't crave any food at all. Which is a big problem when I am trying to manage my diet (broadly doing macros). You have to eat a lot of stuff.

                                  Ray De Galles shared this genius stall at the cricket. Almost made me want to go to cricket.



                                  As an aside, my previous cheese on toast-related discovery was when a mate made me it for breakfast. It was one of those times when you realised the truth had been staring you in the face for ages. Cheese on toast. For breakfast.

                                        Pierogi (just come from the Krakow thread...)

                                        There used to be a proper Polish restaurant in a cellar near Newcastle monument- very fond memories of a big party of pickets heading there at someone’s recommendation on a strike day after the 11:00 rally. We’d all been up since the crack and so were hungry enough to feast across the menu and there was no-one else in that early

                                          Can you even get decent Cullen Skink in Embra?


                                          Do you not need to at least in Inverness or Aberdeen, never mind Moray?

                                              I had a chicken tikka masala the other day, for the first time in about 20 years. I only ordered it because I'd mentioned to my gf that it was voted Britain's national dish. She was rather skeptical, clearly thought I was bullshitting as per usual. So when she asked what it was like, rather than admit I didn't actually know, I said why not judge for yourself. Anyway turns out it's actually fucking delicious.

                                                  Anyway, on subject. It's not exactly a dish, but until a year ago I worked for a FTSE 100 company that had the bulk of its business in South Africa. As such there was quite a bit of travel down there, which gave opportunities to get stuff brought back. The two main things were biltong and Chuckles.
                                                  I can get acceptable biltong here from Savannah. What I can't get are chuckles.

                                                  Chuckles are like Maltesers. Only the honeycomb bit is delicious and they have about 3 times as much chocolate on them. Oh god, I miss Chuckles.

                                                    Southern pubs must be really fucking shit if you don't talk to each other.

                                                    If there's one thing worse than a pub without beer it's a pub without conversation.
