Because there seems to be more and more choice out there

Toss up between Fish & Chips or Chinese.

I also love Indian food but prefer that sat in a restaurant for some reason!

Chinese every time.

Fish and chips but the problem is that nobody in the South East can cook them.
They cost a fortune only to end up in the bin so I rarely buy them now so I usually wait until I am at the coast or up North.
Also a lot of chip shops are now owned by people that also sell other stuff that is cooked in the same fat/oil instead of just specialising in fish and chips.

Indian, a jalfrezi, nann bread, bombay potatoes and a sag bhaji. Only trouble is I've yet to find a decent Indian resaurant or takeaway here, the one down the road is very hit and miss, the nann I had the other night was very heavy and the sag was a bit weird.

You'd do well here Barney it's nearly all fish and chip shops here, shame I don't like chips, or fish for that matter.

Sirloin Steak or a Chicken Maryland.

If I'm forced to eat exotically then a Sweet and Sour Chicken and Fried Rice from the Chinese. I don't eat from Indian takeaways, but I do love home cooked Indian meals, my brothers wife is Indian and she is amazing in the kitchen and very secretive how she does it.

I'm also partial to a Burger King once a blue moon.

My favourites vary, depending on all sorts of things. Most of the various types of takeaway have hit the top spot over the years, but also some can be rock bottom.

Fish and chips, for instance. Some great ones around, some awful ones too. Best freshly cooked, not hanging around in their waiting area for ages, or reheated from earlier leftover lunch time opening. Best eaten straight away.

Takeaways, in my opinion, you should be able to reheat and enjoy later, but fish and chips often fail that test.

Indian takeaways are usually great, all sorts of combinations.

Chinese also, but I usually have similar type dishes, vermicelli noodles, fried rice etc.

There is some controversy about reheating rice, but I personally don't think it is as damaging as some make out, and having reheated quite a lot in my time, I haven't been ill with food poisoning. Well, not much anyway. Apart from...

Pizzas? Although can be tasty, what a ripoff! Things like £16.99 for glorified cheese on toast. Most pizza places are always chucking stuff through your letter box, buy one get one free, half price tuesday, etc etc. It shows what a rip off the normal price is.

Kentucky Fried chicken used to be good in the 70's, plus I fancied the girl who was serving in our local one at the time, although she was already going out with someone. I never did get a date though, and also piled on a few stone in the process.

I usually have one takeaway each week which is actually delivered not collected so is it still a takeaway?
Chinese, Indian or pizza depending on how I feel.

If I’m collecting I have fish n chips. If it’s being delivered I have pizza.

Mine is a prawn curry or recently had a "chids" portion of cod and chips .
It was 4 little chunky bits, not greasy at all.

Victoriana11  Female  Buckinghamshire 13-Oct-2019 11:49 Message #4757870
Fish & chips is nice. It used to be a cheap meal but its now costly. One piece of medium Cod was £6 and a small portion of chips £2.50. This was local - very nice , but how do families afford it. I quite like Roe in batter and that is £1.65. I am old enough to remember when a piece of fish was 6 pence and chips wrapped in newspaper were 3 pence ( old money - £sd) I seem to think it tasted better, but I expect it was the same as nowadays which is more hygenic out of white paper or a carton. I dont like salt or vinegar on anything EVER.

Fish cake and chips or sausage and chips, there's a chippy just down the road them cakes are fish between two pieces of potato, not those rubbishy mashed things with breadcrumbs many chippies do.

An alternative if I'm away from home is a big whopper from burger king, not the healthiest or most socially acceptable food nowadays, but better than those mini things the macdonald lot do.

We now have a fish n chip van cone round in the evening and it is very popular.
