    I prefer sticking to the basics, only fish and chips thanks. Bit old school that way.
    Some shops here will add a nice hot spice over the chips that burns all the way down and out again later, no thanks.

    Yeah, you can't beat the basics. Fish'n'chips (with salt & vinegar) eaten out of paper is one of my favourite things of all time. Well, as long as the cod isn't actually Vietnamese catfish! lol

    We have a great fish and chips place here called Circus Pub which is a British style outlet serving excellent, crispy fish and great fries and onion rings. The proprietor is from England and wanted to replicate a classic British pub. Yum!

    My appetite is back. They also have classic ales including Boddington's and also Guiness stout.

    On the bright side is the future possibility (when the fossil fuel crunch really hits) that we might mine our sewers for a renewable oil resource.

    I can see it on the gas pumps now--"Unleaded Fatburger--only $50 a gallon!"

    Boddingtons isn't bad for a pasteurised beer. I think they stopped making the cask ale completely though. I believe Whitbread own it now.
