Take-away of Choice....

Whenever I go home through Waterloo Station I go to Wasabi and get a Chicken Tanmen which is chicken + Veggies + noodles. In Finchley we have one of the greatest kebab restaurants where I get a lamb shish + Salad + Tzatziki wrapped in one of those round bread folded over things. About 15 inches long and 3 inches across. Amazing.

This is a classic Japanese 'take-away'.



It's called 'Bento' which means 'lunch box' (kind of). It's rice, of course, fish and pickled vegetables. That battered thing on the right is called 'ebi fry', which is usually a prawn or the like. That pink round thing above the ebi fry is called 'kamaboko' and is a sort of fish paste made into a rubbery texture. Underneath that, the yellowy orange thing, is 'tamagoyaki', which is like an omelette.

I don't eat these by the way, well I don't eat fish but, like I said, this is a classic Japanese take away. For me, I usually have something called; 'tonkatsu'



It's pork in batter I guess, with rice, ginger and bamboo.
Missus always gets a bento box when we go the Japanese it changes daily fucking cracker

Gotta say chinese but i always have a curry from them!
I expect a lot of us remember the olden days when the only curry you could get was that Vesta shit or chicken curry and chips from the chinky (yeah I know, that's not allowed these days but I don't mean it in a racist way it's just what we used ti call them). When the first Chinese takeaway opened where I lived we thought it was right sophisticated to eat their international cuisine, curry and chips was a new experience! The 'curry' was just some nasty, slimy gravy with curry powder in it but we loved it!

These days we are so lucky having all the variations of proper Indian cuisine as our national dish - it's fucking ironic innit, all the racists that want the foreigners and imiagrunts out would be lost without their Rubies, Kebabs and Chinkys (sorry again!). I expect the Daily Wail will start a campaign to ban Pizza, fucking eyetie euro trash, coming over here and taking over from our good old fish n chips! Pizzaexit means Pizzaexit! Garlic? Thats fucking European as well , Olive Oil and Balsamic fucking vinegar will all be kicked out of the country and we can take back our lard and Sarsons paper fucking malt vinegar

I just had a thought! Those bastrad foreigners need our fish and chips more than we need that stuff they call food, so, we can put a nice big tariff on exported fish and chips! The EU countries obviously will sign individual trade agreements on pizza and the other few items we import, they won't need to obey any of their silly EU laws that obviously don't apply to deals with the mighty UK! There are many more consumers in the UK that the EU so they will bend over arsewards to make deals with us. Of course the Germans will want to export sausages too us so they will ignore all those silly free movement and other pesky euro-laws, the French love and admire us so much that they will not risk losing out on exported baked goods from superior British companies like Greggs, nobody in the UK eats anything French anyway so that one's sorted. We can start growing our own Spaghetti if the eyeties get umpty and use proper English cheese on our pizzas, which we will now call cheese on toast! Imagine having cheese on toast with proper english Worscecsreshtershire sauce delivered to your house for only about twenty quid - result!

We CAN have our pizza and eat it - or there will be no more fish n chips for them!

Yes! The Wimpy bar and the Benders! Bender-Burgers were those slit sausages I think?? That was the second sophisticated eatery that opened up locally when I was a kid! This is a real nostalgia thread and no mistake governor! I remember when acid was half a crown and you could leave your door unlocked without fear of anyone nicking anything - probably because you had fuck all to nick!

Never had a kebab. Yes really.

:eek:

I have bought one once on my way back from an evening match ironically from WHL. I opened the lid picked it up and the oil literally dripped out of the soggy bread and into the box. The smell of the rancid oil kicked in and I just left the box on the counter and walked out.

One thing that is annoying me is the fact that KFC over here (Orlando) is completely different. They don't do burgers!!! WTF ! I love the UK Zinger burger, one of my faves, but the fact they don't even do any burgers at all is just weird. No chips either.

I do love fish and chips as well, tough thing to find in North London these days.

There used to be a great kebab shop just across the road from the old Paxton Road, proper turkish family, with the grandma doing the bread wrap whilst someone else carved the meat and the rest of the family did the filling, wrapping and taking the money.

Delicious.

That sounds delish to me, a proper kebab! Some folks like extra virgin olive oil as a dressing but the correct oil to accompany a kebab is of course extra rancid oil, loverly! I used to love kebabs when I was alive, not so much the next morning, waking up with a murderous hangover, a taste like you'd smoked 3 packets of ciggies, which I had, and then licked the ashtray. Then you try and get up from the sofa only to find you have been glued to it by half an uneaten kebab oozing oil, extra rancid of course, and extra chilli sauce all over the place.

That is some serious secret squirrel stuff.

Always seem to be in this thread when I'm hungry ;)

A Spanish girl at my university had never seen a kebab shop before she came to London, so had no idea what meat was used. Not sure exactly why I did this, but I told her it was a horses leg. As far as I know she returned to Spain still thinking that.

16 and a half p for a bender, that's a top, top bargain for such a meaty frankfurter! I liked the sophistication of a Romboults filter coffee, mind you 11p was a lot of money back then, you could buy 5 Park Drive ciggies for that! Is this around 1972? I reckon it is. This REALLY takes me back to the olden days! Brilliant.

Unbelieveable prices...what was the point of 'half a p' the coin was so small as well.

It was the replacement for the old penny mate, the bastrad feds could not take our penny away could they? The 1 new p was 2 old d, and back in those days that was a lot of money. I think there were fears that all the prices would be rounded up so they brought in that little tiddler.

It's funny telling kids about the proper money we used to have ; 12d's in a shilling, 240 d's in a pound, 2 shillings and 6 d's in a half crown, 47 bobs in a doodah,, tanners, bobs, ha'pennies, thrupny bits (my favourite),groats, florins, cockgobblers, farthings, the kids think it is all true because they are kids and kids are well fucking stupid and will believe anything you tell them.

The new pound coin is going to be a bit like the old thrupny bit I think, my favourite as well, although I quite liked a sixpence - we used to put them in Christmas puddings, a modern 5p or 10p is not the same thing at all these days...... Everything seemed much bigger back in the day.......half a crown was huge, the old blue £5 note enormous and worth a fortune, Waggon wheels and cadbury's creme eggs, bigger than a big thing.
