> A pie with shrimp tempura, steamed shrimp, squid rings, fish cakes, pineapple, wasabi mayonnaise, and a hot dog-stuffed crust.

>It's a horrible hydra of fast food; you finish off the greasy shrimp tempura and squid rings and funky fish cakes and overripe pineapple spring up in their places. There's no flavor cohesion. The pineapple's tang, the tempura's rancidity, the squid's funk, and the sinus-scorching zing of the wasabi-mayonnaise all clash in your mouth, vying to see who can trigger the gag reflex first.

When you said pie there I was thinking of an actual pie and was trying to visualize a hot-dog stuffed pie crust. Would there just be a single circumference of hot dog or multiple rings? If single, would the ring be at the top of the bottom? Perhaps there's some sort of sliced hot-dog meshwork throughout the pastry like a kind of atherosclerotic reinforced culinary concrete.

Altough, authentic east-asian flavours in traditional English pie form would be kind of interesting.

When I lived in Shanghai there was only one pie shop in the entire city and Brits would flock from miles around and fight each other for the pies. And the pies were only 'just ok' compared to Western fair.

"Heston salt beef pretzel sub" from Waitrose. Salt beef, sliced gherkins, emmental cheese, mayonnaise, and weak American mustard. On paper it doesn't sound like a particularly good combination, but it works. It's a supermarket sandwich that's actually tasty and doesn't come across as something you've resigned yourself to buy because you need a cheap and quick meal. I think I would go so far as to say it's the best supermarket sandwich I've ever tried.

Struggling for ideas on what to buy for the gourmet in your family? Consider picking up Heston's world class molecular gastronomy gift set for the low price of £899.

I suppose to answer the question in the /£$€¥/ thread, I've found myself living close to, and able to semi-regularly buy things from an M&S food hall recently. Their beef and onion with peppercorn mayo sandwich is very nice.

I've had some excellent packaged sandwiches, but the best I've ever had was a ham and cheese croissant sandwich from WHSmith's. It wasn't fancy, it wasn't even hot, but for some reason it always hit a spot other meal deal sandwiches and wraps simply couldn't.

I only ever saw them in the airport stores, and the pandemic has caused them to stop stocking them.

The Smiffs in Lime Street station stocked these for about a fortnight, then presumably had to stop selling them because they were actually edible.

I bought a couple of these on a whim because they were in the reduced section and used them to make something that's as much like paella as my hazy memory of how to make that allows, only with spaghetti instead of fancy rice and it was great so either I'm a good cook or these things are good ingredients.

These weren't bad. They don't really taste like chorizo, but I can understand why they went for "chorizo style" rather than "slighty spicy mushroom and smoked paprika sausages".

I'd call this a quick Veganuary update, but some of these are vegetarian:

Sainsbury's goats cheese and caramelised onion pies were really nice but there was hardly any onion in them. These might have already been cleared out as they were reduced Christmas fodder.

Lidl's vegan sausage rolls were alright. I'd have them again.

Lidl's vegan pasties were shit.

I don't think Aldi are doing much for Veganuary as they already have a decent vegan range, but I'll look to try their meat-free sausages and meatballs when I get the chance.

I had some Co-Op sausages last night; they were fucking aweful. Irresistable brand, apple&something and 'caramelised onion' flavoured. 74% pork. They might have been alright had I not eaten 9 - they couldn't have been that bad after all but the sweetness of the onion and apple made me feel sick.

Perhaps he's referring to the etymological root. In any case, a sausage that's only 74% pork does not deserve the 'Irresistible' tag. Personally I won't get out of bed for a sausage that isn't 90% pure.

Ah, I'd rate Becks Blue above Erdinger. Both are tolerable cold, but Becks becomes foul less quickly with increasing temperature.
(I drink these while doing farming stuff in mid summer, so they live in a coolbox that loses its cool by the end of the day. Your requirements may differ.)

14086 Sizzl'n Medium Kickin' Sour Cream Pringles
snapshotimagehandler_1778664628.jpg
140861408614086
I'm not super keen on all the seppo style apostrophe abbreviatin' used in the marketing of this but give me a souped up version of a classic flavour crisp in a black bag and I'm on board to dip my toe in at least (see also: Walkers Max)

Sour Cream is the most staple Pringles flavour and as a result is perhaps the most overlooked other than plain. These crisps have a good amount of dust and have the same basic flavour profile of their forebear and looking at the ingredients it seems like they're using the standard dust supplemented with chili extract. The structure of the crisp is springy and brittle and calls to mind eating Cheese & Onion Discos in the playground in the 90s.

One would find these pair well with a sour cream and chive dip, or perhaps garlic, if looking to soften the heat. Otherwise a spicy salsa, or even some sriracha would work well to enhance the spice component of the snack.

They would pair well with mature gouda and Mexicana cheese and Reisling wine.

I placed several of these on a sandwich with Emmental cheese and coronation chicken and was promptly sent on a day trip to flavourtown.

Not horrendous, although I wouldn't get it again as a full meal like it claims to be, it feels like something you'd have 3 of 4 bites of as a small garnish.
