Are All The Good Restaurants Really In London And The South?

Recommended Posts

Surely not.

And they are doing it all wrong in Manchester ...

Manchester continues to wait for a Michelin Star award for fine dining, leaving it lagging behind other major cities in the UK...

Smashing! There's a lovely Chinky Chippy up the road from here!

I think I have been "politically incorrect" again, and must place myself in a "correction centre" after my next shift, for re-education! :blink:

I don't recall dining out much when we lived up North.

I think the best restaurants are in Amsterdam. Casa di David just near Spui and Burger's Patio in the Jordaan area are probably the two best dining experiences that I've had.

Giraffe and La Tasca in Basingstoke aren't quite the same.

You don't like chips in curry sauce with peas?

Isn't "Yorkshire" comprised of different counties nowadays? West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire etc.

A bit like saying The South-east now boasts the largest number of Michelin Starred restaurants than any other county

West Riding, North Riding and East Riding - it's that simple.

I heartily recommend "Pipe and Glass" (although it is the ONLY Michelin starred restaurant that I have eaten at). Great food at a reasonable price.

Got the best ever fish and chips up the road....£5.30 decent piece of fresh cod cooked while you wait in clean oil, fresh batter and a good helping portion of chips ...even a few crispy ones at the bottom.....special treat.

So many other things are better cooked at home.....morrisons had some lovely scallops..£2 something for six, made a fresh hazelnut butter sauce....tasted better than many restaurant offerings you sometimes get. ;)

To be honest a MS is just a snapshot in time......in the food trade things can change very quickly, staff turnover changes of menu...one great place can turn quickly into not such a great place and visa versa......food is of the moment, of the season, of the business, of the staff.... ;)

When I worked for a big retailer we went up to one of the distribution centres - Castleton, I think.

I remember queueing in the canteen looking at some metal pot with an unidentifiable bright green substance in it and asking what it was.

"That's mushy peas!" exclaimed the server, almost with a hint of pride and derision. "Do you want some?"

"Er, no."

At least quote it properly.

Yorkshire now boasts the largest number of Michelin Starred restaurants than any other county in England outside of London.

You should have proudly asked for some guacamole.

That's an acquired taste! I never got it! How does it get so GREEN? :blink: Even real peas can't be that green! :huh:
