Curry pie van (Ely Food Festival, 3-4 May 2015)
Sutton Coldfield town centre
but you've fucked that up now. Might have been offensive to tradesmen anyway.
When I work my late night there's always a burger van parked in the car park at Surbiton station and I'm amazed I've not got a burger or some 99p chips out of desperation.
it's the onions frying that do it.
but a man?
we've had identical views on lots of things recently.
and grease. not for me.
they still exist?
Spud yule lick eh for shits and giggles.
spotted at: any event ever.
now serving: reheated noodles soaked in flavourless brown liquid, accompanied by meat nuggets of questionable origin.
and I still haven't had food from that burger van. Which is amazing really as I'm a top customer of the kebab place next door. I think I'm put off by them advertising their 99p chips as being McCain as if that's anything special. So they taste like oven chips eh?
How could you, niko? How could you?
Also, not sure I could accurately be described as "a man". That sounds very adult.
took one sip and poured it down the drain in disgust
in summary: NEVER AGAIN
at eg Glastonbury (I've been)
van at Ely Food festival:
some kind of roasted almond(?) stall. Who the hell wants that?
this might be relevant?
but considering all they do is fry bacon, sausages, eggs and burgers all day you would think they would perfect cooking it. Instead you get flabby soggy bacon with grisly chewy fat around the edge. Every single thing is done as cheaply as possible - the worst ingredients, terrible tea bags, the mealiest dry rolls.
about gebrannte mandeln please?
Curry pie van??
The veggie peddlars are usually doing a roaring trade.
Grill'd: Solid. Popular, but not ridiculous.
Kanapina: Bit of a queue, but nothing to get excited about.
Organic Chickpeas: Every twat in the world queueing for miles.
Empire Dogs: Can't even give the fuckers away, staff always look so sad and bored. Opened for breakfast for the first few months, because someone thought breakfast hotdogs would catch on. Surprised it's still running.
Last time they were here there was a stand selling whole lobsters with chips.
Obviuusly these were 3-4 times the price of every other stall around and were getting zero interest.
By the end of the week they had started selling only lobster rolls, presumably in an effort to reduce prices and get some interest.
The market is here this week. Might go see if they made it back.
and on the way out we were making chit chat. He said he'd love to work in Canary Wharf again so I asked what he liked about it and he said so he could have his lunch at that chickpea place!
Needless to say he didn't get the job. I'm intrigued as to what the fuss is all about but the day I queue for chickpeas will be the day I have to hand back my Northerner lifetime membership card.
Pretty, pretty rank.
small, pale looking patties which are about 40% beef anyway.
