What's your favourite thing to order?
I never get take-away here in Backstickistan but we treat ourselves up in Dublin when we visit the in-laws, my two favourites:
Pad Krah Pao with Duck and steamed rice
I also really love the cod and chips from the Italian takeaway in the next village, a shop run by an angry Italian family but their food is nice.
Double dead cow burger with sliced dead pig and made with sugary bread, with cheese and some deep friend onion rings. If they can put some barbecue sauce on it that’s even better.
Can you get this delivered?
Freshly cooked battered cod and chips, plenty of salt, and a steaming pot of curry sauce to pour over the whole lot.
Fanny and chips....hold the sauce... smothered in vinegar
It used to be a snack box, with two breasts. You pay a little extra for the second breast, but god damn it's worth it. I sometimes wonder why it doesn't come with two breasts automatically. In fact, does anyone even like the other bits, the drumstick, whatever bit of the chicken that is, and the leg?
With the drumstick you're eating a lot of grease, a lot of batter/breadcrumbs and a lot of tendons, but there's very little chicken isn't there? Don't get me started on that other piece, the piece only good for the skin, and once you take it off and eat it you lose your appetite because you realise 'white meat' isn't quite accurate, because it's not white. It's dirty white. It's traveller white. And fair balls to KFC here because they've managed to make you think all the pieces are as succulent as the rest, but they're not.
The only piece worth it's weight is the breast. Don't get me wrong, I realise some breasts are far from perfect, and some patently shouldn't have been fried at all, but I find the success rate on a breast is far higher than any other piece. It's the only piece that you can devour really if we're honest here.
Two brown sauce sambos. Slap it on thick, no butter, two pints of Guinness.
Peking Chicken and Chips from Eddie's Kitchen down the road, better when Eddie is having an argument with the wife which is most nights and the place is bouncing
King prawns with green peppers, mushrooms and black bean sauce.
Chicken cashew nuts with boiled rice and a heap of veg.
Or a dominos pizza with as much meat and bell peppers and seasoning as will fit.
I don't get them very often though.
I would also be as happy with a rotisserie chicken. Mmm
Drumstick is the leg and the other bit you're on about is the thigh. Drumsticks are great, the darker meat has the best chicken flavour.
Used to get from my local Chinese:
Salt & Chili Chicken pieces
Chicken Satay skewers
Curry Sauce (for both the rice and the s&c chicken)
And occasionally to mix things up, typical 4-meat Pizza & chicken dippers combo meal from Apache.
However, no takeaways for the last 4 months, and none for the foreseeable future as I'm on a diet due to eating stuff like the above far too regularly. Mmmmm... salmon and broccoli...
Ah Jaysus Lads will yiz STOP!! Feckin starving now and won't get anything till 6pm
