But this is the first pic i opened up
@Captain Swordsman, JUST EAT BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE GETS TO IT!
@Albmag, too late. *mouthful of bread*
@Captain Swordsman, and that's enough for today.
@Imaginaut, how many did you eat?
@The Last Roman, Yes.
Americans - need your advice.
Chick-fil-A. They opened their first ever UK branch a week ago, but the shopping centre it’s in has announced that they won’t be renewing their lease (LGBTQ pressure groups, but that’s not what this post is about) so it’ll be closing in six months.
Is it worth a 130 mile round trip to try their chicken before it departs these shores forever? And if so, what’s best to order?
@Nellybert , their chicken sammich and waffle fries are world famous.
If you don't have fried chicken in the UK, then it is probably worth the drive.
@Nellybert , nah it's fast food. Definitely not worth going out of your way to get
@WhiteR, We do have fried chicken - KFC is the only big chain I can think of though.
@Hoopscallion, If I do go, probably be more for novelty value than out of an expectation of a fine dining experience.
Was in Milan last week and went in to a Jollibee just to try their ‘famous’ Aloha Yum Burger. (If you’re wondering, pineapple has less right being in a burger than it does on a pizza).
@Nellybert , if you can come up with other excuses to travel to that general area, I would HIGHLY recommend their “Chick-fil-A sauce” Its for dipping your waffle fries, but I like putting it on the actual sandwhich.
@Nellybert , as an adventure with some of your friends? Yes
As a good idea to stop somewhere for the sole purpose of sustenance? No
@Nellybert , wow, apparently because the son of the USA owner (not the UK franchisee) donated £1.4m seven years ago to a Christian sports Foundation, that apparently means that they are anti gay and should be terrorised out of existence.
Was there more to this or am I reading this right?
Also, quite from the UK paper: 'The chain's ethos and moral stance goes completely against our values, and that of the UK as we are a progressive country that has legalised same-sex marriage for some years and continues to strive towards equality.'
Surely true equality is that some people are allowed to believe, through Christianity or other thought processes, that they don't agree with this and (so long as they aren't trying to close down gay bars and stop pride marches) can have their own opinion?
I'm not anti gay or anything, but I believe that when one group has beliefs, they must respect others opposing beliefs. Again, so long as it isn't violently or destructively enforced.
@Snarfel Burger, Ta, will try to remember that. :)
@TheMightyImp, I feel for the franchise owner. He probably staked enough money into this franchise for a few good size houses, and now he is screwed because of something he didn't do, 7 years ago..
@TheMightyImp, As had been pointed out, the trend these days is for some people to call themselves ‘liberal’ while being anything but - completely intolerant of the views of anyone else.
I’m probably more liberal than conservative in the traditional sense. For example; I’m a Christian but I’m okay with gay marriage as a legal thing, don’t think churches should be made to conduct them though. I don’t think we should deny people inheritance tax breaks just because they’re gay, but if you think that’s sending them to hell, I also respect your right to believe that (but not to give them shít over it - that’s just harassment).
And, frankly, I don’t really give a toss about the opinions of some dude in America that have no bearing on anything over here. Heck, Colonel Sanders was probably a racist by today’s standards - not gonna stop me eating his fried chicken either!
@Nellybert , CHICK-FIL-A SAUCE!!! Get as many as you can and cherish that gold
@Nellybert , what about Nandos? Also, KFC chicken is way better than Chick-fil-A, in my opinion. I would put Chick-fil-A somewhere near the bottom of my list of favorite fried chicken places.
@NotFlat, Nando’s grill their chicken, I wouldn’t put it in the same category - was just thinking of places which deep fry it really.
If I’m in the area I may try it just for the sake of trying it while it’s in the country, but doesn’t sound like it’s worth the trip just for their chicken (the sauce sounds like it’s pretty popular though!)
What is a Lemba? Never heard of that kind of bread
@chickee fella, Its from Lord of the Rings. Hobbit bread
@CaptianMcKenderson, oh thank you, forgot all about it. Ain’t seen those movies since the marathon of the extended versions I did over a year ago.
@CaptianMcKenderson, I think it’s actually elven bread
Lembas bread is elf tamales.
Change my mind
Dammit I'm too late. They're all gone
Somebody explain. I've been living under a rock.
Can I get the recipe for these? I'd love to make these for my wife.
@ORB_Dark_Angel, sure. Its pillsbury scone mix, green construction paper and hemp twine
