List thread of your "normal" orders / purchases in the following places:


coffee shop: latte
pub: pale ale
mcdonalds: mcchicken sandwich meal with coke

Coffee Shop - Black coffee
Pub - The most Spanish lager (usually San Miguel, but more and more places have started selling Estrella), or whichever real ale has the best name.

McDonalds/KFC/Whatever - I propose a subthread - can anyone recommend any of the meat-free options at any of these high street fast fooderies?

I tried that vegan fried chicken in Hackney over the weekend. It’s the future.

Nusa: (@plasticniki and @aboynamedgoo this is the age old argument between me and my bf about whether to have rice or not. I am always PRO rice, he is always ANTI rice)

@meowington I am very pro rice.

coffee: flat white
pub: any beer I’ve never tried, usually a porter. failing that anything dark.

I had what I thought was going to be a lovely dark beer last night but it was very smokey and I hated it :cry:

this is a pretty accurate flow chart of my beer making decisions

We queued for well over an hour. I’d be lying if I said it was “totally worth it”, but at the same time, I’m so, so, so glad we persevered.

Great! It’s your round btw.
