Chippys around here are disgusting, selling fat drenched ludicrously large portions of tasteless stodge.
Don’t be fooled into thinking the burger chain franchisees are some sort of disorganised small businesses, they aren’t. Most are operators of several restaurant brands with sometimes hundreds of outlets. I used to supply them. They are turning over tens if not hundreds of million a year. They are successful because they give the public what they want at a sensible price.
When I was a kid my mum used to give me wonderful homemade sugar sandwiches. Washed down with lashings of orange cordial. No wonder I became diabetic.
Anyway, I’ve been a good boy recently and as a treat tomorrow I’ll be in Glasgow where I’ll be having a battered donner kebab for lunch. In about six weeks I’ll lick my lips and still be able to taste it.
