arent they just a bit boring?
pizza, pasta, tomato based stuff. wheres the invention?
I think the last innovation in italian was those ninja turtle pizzas with chocolate spread and marshmallow on them, and we all know how that turned out.
its just hella boring when you go to one and ooooohhh lasagne, spaghetti, a steak!!! wow!! i cant believe it! such bravery, such skill.
"Indian food? It's just curries and spicy stuff. Where's the invention?"
"Chinese food is just rice and noodles"
And so on...
is amazing. also new british food is good.
i agree about chinese too, but at least they have amazing starters.
italian foods just m'eh
intrestinlee. What do you expect though? And anyway, surely a very broad menu is an indicator of a shit restaurant?
what about french bistros, they've got a wide range and often change every night, but generally are up to the highest standard
won't just serve pizza and pasta.
Last time I went to one in Edinburgh I had a baked egg thing for starters and risotto for main course. There was only one pizza and one pasta dish on quite a large lunchtime menu.
and each night there is usually a different but still relatively small selection of dishes on offer. If a restaurant claims to be able to do loads of wildly varying dishes all the time, it's probably shit.
TUSEDAY NITE IS CURRY CLUB!!
Try going to an Italian restaurant an having a rethink
im not stupid
Not including bella italia.
there's plenty of good places in Yorkshire, you just have to find them.
i did find a lovely bistro in shipley the other day. no pasta in sight!
