Why do a lot of people seem to rave about Nando's?
My friends think I'm a freak because I very rarely eat Subway or Nando's; as far I can tell it's just, not especially good quality, grilled chicken that has been marinated in peri-peri sauce. Am I missing something here?

>the cafe worker asked if I wanted it with beans, peas or 'mushies' and I am still not convinced that referring to mushy peas as 'mushies' is actually a thing
You know how sometimes a weed dealer will work in fast food and give you a bag if you use a code word when ordering your food?

Let me rephrase;
You know how sometimes on TV a weed dealer will work in fast food and give TV people a bag if they use a code word when ordering their food?

It happens in real life too. If you ask for the special pizza at the Happy Chip in Newcastle they'll sell you pills.

Yeah. I don't know how it worked exactly, but my mates used to order a Dominos and get weed delivered at the same time.
|>>|| No. 13022
Never had a Papa John's. I'm assuming it's similar to Domino's (i.e excruciatingly overpriced), how do they compare?
Still fucking baffles me how you can get away charging near 20 quid for a bloody pizza though, and people defend it because "it's pretty good if you go for the offers". It fucking isn't, you can get a better pizza for £3.50 from the counter at Asda.
|>>|| No. 13023
The only difference is the pizza sauce, which I think is better. Otherwise it's exactly the same as Dominos, right down to the pricing.
|>>|| No. 13024
Asda wont deliver that on its own though mate, I don't drive; my nearest Asda is 8 miles away, and based on my own anecdotal evidence of my consumption, these places get by on taking advantage of drunk people.
|>>|| No. 13025
I prefer the sauce, cheese, and crust texture of a Papa John's, I just think they're all around better, at least in the thin crust game.
I agree with you that they're ludicrously expensive, and not really even "good pizza" anyway - what I should really do is invest in a decent pizza oven and have actual nice pizza on tap. But as it stands, I'm a fat, rich cunt so don't mind paying £25 for two XL pizzas and some chicken wings and some dips.

I don't understand why Domino's have ridiculous prices for their pizzas, with constant offers on, rather than lowering the prices and getting rid of the offers. Surely there can't be that many idiots who'd pay full price for them?
|>>|| No. 13027
Offers drive sales. A 12 quid pizza is expensive, but an £18 pizza with ONE WHOLE PIZZA FREE ON TOP OF THAT!!! Is a bargain.
It really does work.

Part of takeaway pizza for me was the rush. It arrives, a huge meaty spicy monster, I scoff it down all to myself in a ridiculously short amount of time, and then it's over. I've had my fix and then I just want to lie around and digest while feeling disgusted with myself. The idea of then having more pizza later on or the next day is absurd. So I very rarely get it anymore because there never seems to be any decent deals anymore for the fat greedy loner who wants to spend about a tenner on a big pizza.

If you've never had leftover pizza for breakfast then you are truly missing out on life.
|>>|| No. 13035
Then you're doing it wrong.
Take a pan, heat it up, stick your pizza in there, add a few splashes of water and cover the pan for about a minute or two - the result is usually better than the pizza as delivered.
|>>|| No. 13036
You're supposed to eat it cold, while slumped on the kitchen floor in a hungover mess.
|>>|| No. 13037
Anyone should know that leftover pizza is one of the best things to exist in this miraculous universe of ours.
However, that's yet another way Domino's and their ilk fall short. Their pizza dries out and loses flavour overnight, and it doesn't take reheating well at all. This is contrary to the cheap, dirty kind of pizza you get from Alis Kebab Shack, which only improves to a subtler depth of flavour and richer texture when consumed cold; and develops a satisfying crisp tanginess when reheated.
It's like anything Yank made. Cars, donuts, guitars... You're paying over the odds for something that is objectively worse in almost every possible metric.

I've had an XL bacon double cheeseburger meal today. It was a bit of a disappointment. Definitely not worth the £7.50 it cost. Burger King seem to have gone right downhill.
|>>|| No. 13106
Never been a lover of dominoes, it's just soggy bland muck. Papa johns is overprices but tastes nice at least, I think it's good cold too.
Local independent pizza shops and kebab shops and their ilk, ehhhh too hit and miss. They use the crappiest ingredients they can get their hands on to get the price down to compete with the franchises.

>Burger King seem to have gone right downhill.
For me the end of Burger King as something I'd look forwards to as a treat was when they changed their fries. They used to be delicious and crunchy, now they're just the bog standard soggy, tasteless chips you'd get in any canteen in the land. I only eat one these days if I'm on the road and hungry enough not to wait to find something better. Once or twice a year, if that.
>Definitely not worth the £7.50 it cost.
The difference in price vs. McDonalds is quite pronounced these days. You don't get much change back from a tenner, which is enough to buy proper food from a pub.
|>>|| No. 13119
A Big Mac and fries is £1.99. If you're paying £7.50 for a meal in McDonalds you're a fucking mug.

>Big Mac and fries is £1.99
Is it? I thought a Big Mac was about three quid now?
Incorrect. They're actually really nice.

Today I have been to Barnsley Bowl, Barnsley's #2 bowling establishment.
Instead of leaving a lengthy review of my all day breakfast, possibly the worst cooked breakfast I've ever had, I'm going to sum the experience up with an image.

I've honestly never been to a place with so many signs up promoting black pudding. They had a couple of monitors up and they spent most of the time with the image about the black puddings on.

>>13154 2 slices for 75p? Fuck me, that's a decent margin. B&M do a tolerable 10"er for a quid, 5p a slice?
Although, thinking about it, the ingredient cost for the rest of that
(horrendous looking) plate can't be more than 40p, so maybe it's about the same ratio? Any industro-cheflads lurking?

I will definitely do this for you.
Be interesting to see what the new Greggs Steak Bake is like too.
|>>|| No. 13166
I've tried the vegan steak bake today. The promo pictures are misleading as I can't recall a single 'meaty' chunk inside; instead it was tiny pieces of mince inside gravy/lava. There was also more air and less filling than I anticipated. It took me a little while to pinpoint the taste; at first I thought it was similar to a Linda McCartney country pie, but then it dawned on me that it was like the mince from Quorn's awful cottage pie ready meals.
At least I can claim £2 via TopCashback, but I'd give it a 3/10 and wouldn't buy it again. I suppose it makes sense if you think about it; I like a Greggs vegan sausage roll and Quorn's chilled sausage rolls are quite nice whereas I disliked the Greggs vegan steak bake but that's unsurprising because Quorn mince products are dreadful.
|>>|| No. 13167
I'm of the opinion that vegan mince (frankly any vegan "meat" product) tastes like fucking hair and I would never eat the stuff again.
|>>|| No. 13168
I've never eaten a meat substitute apart from all the shit they cut animal meat with but I'd like to give one of them Impossible Burgers a try. Do they only have those in America? That'd be a shame because I can never go to America because catamarans take far too long.
|>>|| No. 13169
The only decent vegetarian mince I've had is Tesco's soya mince that you rehydrate but I think they've discontinued it. All other vegetarian mince I've tried tastes shite and it tends to overpower whatever you try to cook it with.
|>>|| No. 13171
I tried it too. There was definitely one lump in it but I suspect if there were others they'd disintegrated.
It was a perfectly serviceable steak bake, mainly tasted of onion, a hint of pepper and burning the skin off my mouth.
Iceland do some decent vegan burgers. They're not quite right but they're the most meatlike I've tried.
|>>|| No. 13172
I thought the fact Holland and Barretts' comes in the same pack size might mean it's the same somehow but I've never tried it.
|>>|| No. 13173
I'd say Linda McCartney burgers edge Iceland burgers; the last time I went to a barbecue they only had cheap meat burgers so the Linda McCartney ones were actually nicer to eat. Not burgers, but I got a couple of Oumph! products yesterday so I'll see what they're like.
For whatever reason most other dried soya mince I've tried ends up too chewy and rubbery.

I'll never forgive her for what she did to Paul. And for all I know there's probably bits of her old leg in there.

It’s fine if a little dry, though the sauce makes up for it. The batter pulls most of the weight as expected. Perfectly inoffensive but nothing to write home about, basically.
