Found an interesting place that had "gourmet" hamburgers and sandwiches. I'm sure that their "Philly Cheesesteak" is quite disappointing but at least they're trying. So I was going to get one of those and then I was looking for something that I could reheat and eat later. I saw that they had chicken wraps. So I was going to get that.
However, then I saw that the price was £5 for a chicken wrap. That's more than even KFC for a wrap and fries. And then I remembered that place that sold a wrap and fries for like £2.40.
So I said, "Wait a minute. Why don't I just walk down to this chicken place and get two wraps and some fries?"
So that's what I did. It's right nearby. Closer than the KFC and I don't have to cross any semi-perilous street like you do when going to KFC.
This is the first time in my life that I went out just to get food from a fast food outlet. In the past, I'd always incorporate the fast food stop into grocery shopping or coming back from work. But I've really been missing out. It's easy to do. Plus, I had just taken a shower and shaved my head so it all came together.
So I got two wraps and a portion of chips for less than £5. Totally crazy. And it's filling stuff. I couldn't start on the second one. I'm giving it about 30 minutes before I try again. It will be a bit cool but reheating it isn't so desireable because I don't have a microwave. I could use the George Foreman Grill or the oven but these aren't ideal tools.
I suspect that the prices for this "gourmet" chicken restaurant are inflated for Hungry House. I found a menu online and prices are between £1 and £2 cheaper. They do this because Hungry House takes a cut of all sales.
There's some other takeaways and Eastern European grocery stores around here that I should check out. I'd like to find these canned cabbage rolls that I used to get from a Polish shop. Those were crazy but pretty good. They also had some good pastries in this Polish shop.
