    How about a Food & Drink Forum for the discussion of recommended places to eat and reviews of food etc., as I'm always running out of ideas of where to take the other half out! :happy:

    My Contribution...

    Sweet & Sour Chicken and Fried Rice

    Chicken breast of some sort in batter, with a seperate pot of Sweet & Sour sauce, serve along side a portion of Fried Rice -Yummy! :yum:

    Go to your local Chinese and order politely, then hand over somewhere in the region of £5-£6(average prices), go home and serve on a plate!

    Job Done :)
