ARRIVAL.   They threw ina  free garklic bread too. This is the greatest thing I have ever eaten. Easily. Full now. Going to bed.

“Someone” 

Ever see a foodstuff that looks so spectacularly dreadful you feel compelled to buy it? In Tesco the other day I picked up a "Breakfast wrap" from the frozen section. You get 2 in a packet. Accor

You're from Harlow aren't you, PunkStep? There's a chippy near my girlfriend's parents' house that sells these, quite near to the town centre. They call it Potato Surprise. Not tried it myself but my missus raves about it.

 

 

Atlantic Fish Bar on Hare Street?  Dave's Plaice was the potato surprise purveyor of truth, courage, and valour ("careful mate, real hot") but that's now Harlow Tandoori.

Yeah sounds familiar, that might be it. It's attached to a really nice chinese.

I can't remember if the Atlantic has one.  The Marina in Old Harlow has a chinese inside.  Food counters on either side of the floor, one's chips etc, one's a cutout window to a chinese kitchen wonderland.

Harlow Tandoori, near Terminus House? Ugh, rotten. I had a questionable spiced toadfish in there once.

 

Yeah, at the end of Post Office Walk.  Many years ago it was a chippy, the rather excellently named "Dave's Plaice."

We used to have a Dave's Plaice too. It won an award for the quality of its fish and chips. Then they moved, and the new owners had a banner made that looked a lot like the one that Dave's Plaice had so people would think it was the same owners. Awful greasy stuff with no taste.

 

There is a Dave's Place up Oak Tree way, who doesn't seem to have understood the joke.

If I ever had a chippy, which would be the second best thing after owning a pub, it would have been called Dave's Plaice or "Good Cod Almighty".

 

Round here its all Leyfield fish bar, glascote fish bar, four oaks fish bar. No imagination besides the jolly fryer, but the foods shit.

I somewhat one day hope to own a burger joint called "Sheer LaBeef" with a pattie shaped picture of everyone's favourite motivational speaker as our logo.

 

As for Butch's mentioning of Beans in a toastie, its a fucking marvellous thing. Always come out scolding hot, but just what you need on a cold winter's night (or any night in fairness)

I'm not proud of this. OK I am. Yesterday may have been the most unhealthy day of my life and that's saying something. Rivalled only by the day I got the sweats from the amount of ice cream I'd eaten.

 

Total -

 

Large chips

Battered sausage

Savaloy

Large kebab (no salad and garlic mayo)

Xtra large kebab (salad, chili sauce and mayo)

 

Now that's #EATCLEAN
