Let's just test the **** out of them and give them dogs abuse if they're shite. 

I've just ordered spaghetti bolognese from an italian, if they can't get that right, hell mend then.

Next on my list is somewhere that does seafood. 

 

Being able to give them dogs abuse while keeping people in jobs... it's a win win.

Cadiz on George Street.

La Casa (tapas) Leith Walk

And The White Oyster on the Royal Mile Are good for seafood. Wouldn't recommend seafood on takeaway though. 

Hectors in Stockbridge has the best Calamari Fritters known to man though.

I can't even give this place abuse, it's really good, I ordered a large chicken kebab as well, 

bit salty, but very good. Minerva Food Bar, Howden. 

 

 

Edit: the more i eat, the more it's too salty to be honest, but good apart from that.

Hectors!

 

Stop it!

 

One of my favourite Edinburgh pubs, ever!

 

A wee bit Bailie, a touch of Stockbridge Tap and a few in Hectors?  Magic.

I'm always in the Bailie and Hectors. Hector's is pretty much a restaurant now. 

I was in Hectors once a week before lockdown. :embarassed:

Usually after or, prior to a few in the Bailie. 

The Bailies food is ok now as well. Definitely one of the last great Edinburgh pubs.

The tap is all craft nonsense and massively overpriced these days.

Try a King Doner Kebab from House of Spice in Broxburn,served in a naan bread,it's huge but most importantly very tasty.

I had a mad craving for it and it was a bit too late to buy the ingredients and start cooking. 

I was also curious about what it would be like from a takeaway that claims to do Italian food.

:notsure:

If they produce crap Chinese food, why would you think it worth  trying  omelette or chicken Maryland from them  ?

 

If they produce lovely Chinese food, why would you even  want to order an omelette or chicken Maryland  ?

An Omlette from the Chinese is ace. The gravy they have with it is Braw. 
 

Obviously a side dish along with a proper main

What Chinese gives you gravy with an omelette?  A mushroom omelette was until recently on the short list of things my wife would eat from a Chinese, and she's never been given gravy with any of the omelettes she's ever had, from christ knows how many places.

Who the **** orders like an omelette or a burger from a Chinese?

 

That's just weird as f... :rofl:

 

 

 


It’s a Chinese omelette. Completely different from a regular omelette. 
 

Egg Fu Young is similar. 
 

As for getting a burger...ordering for a family and someone doesn’t like Chinese food getting a burger from the same place is hardly weird. We will often get my 8 year old Chicken nuggets or a burger because he hates Chinese.

When i was a lad and the family were getting a Chinese,  it was chicken chow mein or beef and black bean sauce they would get me, and i grew to like it. 

Chicken Nuggets 😂  Just be careful or he'll still be ordering them from the Chinese when he's 40.

McDonalds have launched a double Big Mac and a very lovely looking Jamaican Jerk Chicken burger.

I'm not sure the word lovely belongs in the same sentence as Mcdonalds, launched on the other hand 👍

Pizzahut's new Christmas pizza, or Domino's new doner pizza anyone?

 

:getout:

 

 


The doner meat on the dominos pizza is pretty nice. I adjusted the pizza and took onions, tomatoes and the sauce off and added a few like pork meatballs and sausage was pretty good.

Aye, but you can get a doner pizza from the chippy for half the price if you're really wanting one. 

Not a fan of greasy meat on a pizza to be honest, it soaks it in and ends up a soggy greasy mess. 

Chippies that actually do a nice fresh tortilla style bread and then decide to put it at the bottom of a tray and pile a greasy mixed kebab on top, do my nut in. 

 

Love a mixed kebab, but don't make the bread ready for the bin.

Got a kebab delivered the other night from the chippy, bloody thing was 'build your own' kebab which didn't even resolve the issue above as it'd steamed itself inside the plastic bag, only got one from there as the mrs wanted an actual chippy. Separate orders from now on

That’s my rule on takeaway food. Like I know I could make a curry at home but it’s never the same as you get from an Indian.

I ordered a chicken kebab from one of my local chippys in Haddington, came with dry precooked chicken you get in packs at aldi, not tje marinaded fresh chicken it says on tje menu and barely any salad or sauce, phoned them up and got offered a 10% discount on my next order, haven't used them again

The amount of take aways I’ve ordered from Rendezvous since lockdown started is ridiculous. But probably the best Chinese take away going that I’ve tried. 
 

Other favourites over the same period of time have been Paolozzi, Shapla, Kebabish and Barburrito.

Woman I work with has just said on a call that her husband built a tandoor oven in their garden, and they had 48-hour marinated Tandoori chicken and naan breads from it last night. I'm working on getting an invite...

There's a few Marmaris's on the go to be honest, but yeah, they're not the best. 

Good if you're desperate on a scran at silly oclock though.

Yep, Rendezvous is the best Chinese going. I'm not generally a fan of Chinese takeaway but that one is outstanding. Seems to be made differently from any others. Moved to East Lothian and still pick one up from there :lol:

Ordered a Chinese on Just Eat last night and wanted to pay with cash but the boy never had any change. I told him to keep it but he said he wasn't allowed to keep tips?? (£5.70). Don't know if thats a new thing or him personally but delivery drivers in the past would bite your hand off for any tip.

 

Boy went to the shop along the road and 5 mins later came back with the change.
