    Whether you've spent the day on a high stool or the evening at home guzzling cans,we all know real men dont cook.So when the belly demands a lining,which is it to be Brothers?
    If i'm buying from a chinese my dish of choice would be BBQ spare ribs,spring roll and fried soft noodles.
    If its a chipper,i tend to favour the Dinner Box,usually three peices of southern fried chicken with chips.

    Usually the chipper for me. Although I am quite partial to an Indian. Although if I'm sloshed it could be anything.

    Chipper all the way, snack box or dinner box depending on hunger level.

    GalwayLAN Special: Chips, curry, cheese, chilisauce, kebab meat, garlic. Perhaps with some coleslaw for decoration.

    why limit yourselves Brothers ?

    last night I had spare ribs from the chinese takeaway, with chicken balls on the side, complemented by chips and a spice burger from the chipper ... washed down with some golden nectar left over from christmas ... think it was Miller.

    my point is, if you are blessed enough to live within lurching distance of both a chinese takeway and a chipper, you should be obliged to mix and match from both menus.

    i myself live within a mile of a chipper, 2 chinese take aways, 2 pizzerias, 2 pubs, off-licence and 2 churches ... all the basic spiritual and corporeal needs catered for.

    It seems to be a universal truth that chinese takeaways have brutal chips ... which is OK, as most chippers have terrible fried rice :)

    Well said Brother trout. Variety is a good thing, so long as it doesn't stray into territories like these new 'healthy eating' establishments.

    As long as it's dripping in Grease and is contains some sort of meat then it passes my test.
    :D:D

    I think it is time to salute our Celtic cousins in Scotland. Deep fried mars bars with a generous helping of haggis.

    You sir are not only a man of girth, you are a shining example to us all.

    What about the noble art of the Man barbeque?
    Anyone else ever like to fire up the ole home burner, get some of dem good butcher burgers from the back of your freezer, a couple of steaks, few corns on the cob, some spare ribs? Its how man was supposed to make food.
    Stick something bleeding in something on fire. Wait for a little while.
    Eat. Repeat.

    Exactly, you're not a true man unless you've eaten meat while poking a fire with a stick.

    Chinese for me, some tasty orange chicken with fried rice.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 27,252 ✭✭✭✭stovelid


    Beef and black bean for the chinese.

    Battered Sauasges fot the chipper. I may, on ocassion, ammend this to a pastie bap if I'm in the North.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,249 ✭✭✭✭Kinetic^


    Chinky: Chicken Curry with chips (instead of rice) and a portion of noodles.

    Chipper: Chips with batter sausage, 1/4 pouner with cheese, tub of garlic sauce.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 41,926 ✭✭✭✭_blank_


    Szechuan Beef and fried rice, maybe spring rolls too.

    Chipper Chips drowned in chipper vinegar.

    Two Spice burgers for dessert.

    First post in these hallowed grounds.

    I fear people may be underestimating the power of a good indian take-away.

    Some onion bhajis, then a chicken tikka madras, jhalfrezi can be nice too. Have it with rice and a garlic naan, perhaps a stuffed paratha as well. It's heavy on bread for extra soakage, tastes phenomenal and compliments the Cobra or Kingfisher I would accompany it with. Fuck, i'm gettin an indian on my way home.

    Incedently, I feel truly at home in this forum, I share an office, and I've been asked why I've been laughing for the last hour!

    Mmmmm .... Peshwari Nan FTW!

    If i lived within lurching distance of an Indian takeaway, my life would be complete :rolleyes: ... and as an added bonus ... i find Indian meals are great for generating extra-ordinary volumes of flatulence *prrrrrrrrps*

    Not brutal, just different.
    Not so much a drunken type of chip though has been known to be quite tasty when accompanied by lashings and lashings of curry sauce.
    Them lads know their curry sauce.

    And you were so close!
    Ye cant have a battered sausage and chips without a spice burger!!


    (as an aside, whats the story with chippers serving these pasty little weiner battered sausages instead of the regular, reassuring buffalo dong style?)

    Not my local, they're longer than the rulers you used in school. (more commonly known as a foot I supose)


  • Registered Users Posts: 27,139 ✭✭✭✭GreeBo


    Me too, but I got stung in Carfolas (Baggot St/Mespil Road before it closed) when I opened the bag to find this little half covered weiner looking at me.
    That chipper that used to be at the green end of Leeson St was the same.
    Funny how they have all closed down now...:cool:


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,484 ✭✭✭Bazzy


    Brothers sit back and hear what i am about to tell you about

    My local is about 3 minutes walk .... normally take longer to get home for some reason :p ???

    Has pool tables and dart boards,

    Around the corner is the piece a la resistance

    A take away establishment with 3 menus

    Chinese
    Pizza
    Chipper

    And may i introduce you to a new invention I created inspired by there menu's


    The Chicken ball kebab

    Its magic!

    first post on this board,BIG chipper fan(have contributed a signifigant portion of income to the local italian community) battered burger in a bread bun with mayo ketchup lettuce and onion would be my banker from chipper,and when the oppurtunity presents itself battered mars bars from the sea shell on townsend street with ice cream to complete the feed


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,297 ✭✭✭✭the_syco


    Depends on when I last ate.

    Garlic chips with cheese, and maybe a cheese quater-pounder...
