Thick cut chips, covered in cheese, layered with curry sauce and finally topped with garlic mayonnaise.

Portion of southern friend chicken goujons

Pint of milk

Traditional cuisine of Strokestown I’m led to believe

If I cannot be bothered cooking (which is very rare) - sushi.

If I've been out with friends or colleagues for a few glasses of beer or wine - a Döner kebab from Ajdin, the guy who runs the local kebab hut close to my apartment. It's not good for me in the long-term, but it's damn tasty as I'm eating it.

Chipper - A good burger is hard bet, with proper chips
Chinese - Chicken Satay or Thai green or red curry.
Indian, this is where takeaway food shines, meat samosas, onion bhagi, lamb bhuna, pilau rice, garlic naan

Shyte food - supermacs

Pizza, nowhere bar good Italian restraints does good pizza, its usually stodgy shyte.
Da Robertas in Salthill Galway does the best pizza in Ireland.

Chipper: Donkey Fords: 2 chips, 5 battered sausages (they're normal sized proper sausages), and a battered burger. Destroyed in salt and vinegar. Shout out to Enzos for a close second on chippers in Limerick.

Chinese: If I don't pick up a spice box on the way home, I'd prefer to go to Wokking and get a General Tso's chicken. It's a hickory based one, and very rare to find elsewhere (it has a few different names though, so maybe others have it, but I've rarely seen it). Usually with a 50/50 fried rice/plain friend noodles.

Italian: Tagliatelle Polpette from Bella Italia. Amazeballs. Meatballs in a spicy tomato and cream sauce. A side of half a loaf worth of garlic bread and cheese too.

Thai: Only place I've really liked was a Thai Green Chicken Curry from Kambo in Waterford. No veg = more chicken. Yurt. Fried rice.

Shytefood: I love Mahon Shopping centre for the simple reason I could get the chips from McD's, the chicken from KFC and the burgers from BK. Now that's a proper shytefood meal. Popcorn chicken and boneless fillets from KFC. Has anyone tried the BK Texas King 3.0? It's fecking hooooooooj! Or a nice combo of the Katsu Curry fries and CBG fries from Abra. Yum.

Pizza: Used to be a Dominos person, but when my company discount was discontinued, there's no way I was paying the proper rip-off prices. The local chipper out here in the country does a fine pizza. It's hard to feck up a pizza though, but some manage. Loads of cheese and meat please!

And it needs to be said. People need to get on board the garlic curry train. Garlic mayo and curry sauce over chicken and chips... Or just a garlic curry chip and cheese from a proper chipper. Heartattack in a bag, but very filling and amazing.
Not crazy about Italian normally but Bella Italia is fabulous.

Billy Bear roll rather than ham.

Shaved raw turnip (use a high-performance electric wood plane, available at Screwfix for €30.45) and a dash of 'Saxa' white pepper to add a slightly exotic piquancy to this authentic Italian snack.

Arrivederci Lamborghini!
Is billy roll ok or does it have to be billy bear?

Kilkenny, sorry. If you're down here, I think Shimla is the nicest. We've a lovely asian restaurant called Aroi in the centre of the city that's both cheap and delicious. My wife and I often get food from there.

It's an excellent question and one that's asked quite frequently from Quadrilatero d'Oro in Milano to Spaccanapoli in Napoli.
There's no clear answer, but the general consensus, amongst the top chefs and leading restaurateurs the world over, is that Billy Roll without the 'Bear' is, how might one say it, slightly 'plebian'.
Though some major Spanish speaking cities, I'm thinking here of Buenos Aires and Bogota, take an almost perverse delight in opting for Billy Roll sin Bear so to speak, though generally Billy Bear Roll is regarded as high-end, or a cut above, if you will.
While we're here, it's interesting to note that Carbonara enthusiasts in South-East Asia prefer 'Haslet' as the meaty addition to their egg-free, cream-filled Carbonara.
In the last analysis, as long as it's made with lashings of fresh cream, you really can't go wrong.....

Viva la Fiat Punto Grande!

By and large I'm not into takeaways.

I don't have a deep fat fryer so on the rare occasion I desire chips I'd rather buy them than make them myself. I have made them in a saucepan but it's too much trouble.

Incidentally I've never 'ordered' a takeaway in my life. It just feels so lazy.
