It would seem that even in the second week of January I was suffering from the Christmas syndrome many of us are affected by… not knowing what day of the week or date it is! This had resulted in turning up for the pub quiz a week early. Feeling hungry, more than embarrassed, we decided to leave the pub and make a long overdue trip to Wolfies of Hove for some Fish & Chips just a couple of doors down.
I was sat in the dining area at the hostel on a remote beach on Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand when I first experienced Massaman Curry. It was love at first bite and for the six weeks I travelled throughout the country it was an affair that continued, though I did often cheat on it with many other tantalising Thai dishes.
Burgers and chips are a food item, which will always suffer slightly when delivered rather than eaten immediately after cooking. Despite the inevitable slight loss of temperature, the triple cooked chips (how did we ever tolerate chips that were only cooked once?) were still crisp.
