Are there any dedicated forums for discussing takeaways? I’ve just moved and I’d love to be able to have conversation with people that could make recommendations based on comparing particular places (especially specific meal items) from people who’ve eaten from both rather than trawling through TripAdvisor or Just Eat reviews. Local advice for local people etc.

Can personally recommend anything and everything from Pepe's on Wilmslow Road.

Good stuff as there is one on Bury Old Road which is near the new domicile.

Anyone else have serious fixations on condiments as opposed to food itself?

Have had a really difficult time getting good garlic sauce since Heinz changed their old recipe to “Turkish style” which I believe is yoghurt rather than mayo based and really not for my palate. Briefly in B&M I found bottles of the old recipe in imported bottles called Knoblauch (don’t laugh) but that’s gone dry so now the only source of original recipe is the small packets you can get at Asda hot counters. So far my quest for a replacement has lead me to Hellman’s Garlic and Herb as the front runner. I also bought one of Crucials which I like for Donner meat as somehow I’m convinced it’s minty even though the only named herb on the ingredients is parsley, but it wouldn’t go near pizza which is what I liked Heinz for. Papa John’s garlic and herb is pretty decent but I need something for when we make our own pizza. Of course, it’s not to be confused with “Special Garlic” which is butter based and smells like feet. It’s nasty.

Speaking of Crucials, their Spicy Mayo is king for the cheap version of Nando’s perinaise. We bought Hellman’s chilli and garlic (anything Hellman’s, often cheap in Lidl is worth a go) which is delicious but not the same flavour.

My other quest is to find cheaper good quality bbq sauces of varying types and a jerk sauce, I love Reggae Reggae and the sauces of Bulls Eye and Reds but only buy them in Asda when £1.50, never more. Also love Sweet Baby Rays but that’s not cheap either. So I picked up the Batts sauces as Lidl never usually steer me wrong. A Tennessee (whisky flavour), a Sticky BBQ (thinking it might replace a standard bbq), a Kansas (with chipotle) and a jerk. The Tennessee delivered what I expected however the Sticky was tasty but way too spicy for a normal bbq sauce (cayenne), the Kansas tasted more like Reggae Reggae than the jerk, and the jerk tasted rather like spicy cola. None unpleasant but neither what I expected.

As an aside also tried Batts medium peri peri.... medium my arse, it’s volcanic. I can handle it but if you ordered medium in Nando’s and received that, you’d send it back.

This stuff is so fucking rank, I don't know how Papa John gets away with it. Dominos garlic sauce is much better.
