  1. Ged, I am dismayed, nay disgusted to see the original (and some might say finest) credit crunch food missing from this list.

    Surely the might “pan o’ scouse” should be outlined in the finest recipe detail with portion sizes (3 pots, 4 chunks of swede, 2 carrots, one piece of meat) and accompanying condiments also described meticulously.

    You’ve not let me down lad, you’ve let youself down. And what’s more, you’ve let your nation down. Please rectify immediately.

    And remember, no matter how hard the times, there’s always money for real HP and red cabbage.

    Peace.

  2. Wow – loads of free food ;) Cheers :)
    Like the sound of Yo Sushi and La Tasca but can’t believe companies like Burger King are still going – they haven’t changed their menus for years, the shops are always empty, they’re in prime locations so their rents must be massive. Can definitely see them going the way of Wimpy and Lyons Tea Houses within a few years.
