🍔 The World Cup of Restaurants

Good morning

I am going through the World Cups in Twitter centrist Richard Osman’s ‘World Cup of Everything’ book. He’s already done it for the scum on Twitter but now lets find out what DiS thinks.

  1. The pairings, selections are match-ups are all taken directly from the book. This is final. No arguments if your favourite isn’t included, take it up with Osman, not me.
  2. The final pairing in each bracket is left blank in the book. I’ll be making the selections. In this case, I’m adding Wetherspoons and Five Guys.
  3. We will try to have a nice time.

So, restaurants.

We have a group stage now. Two votes in each group.

BTW, in the Round of 16 the winner of Group A will take on the runner-up of Group B, and the winner of Group B will take on the runner-up of Group A, and so on.

And yes, I wrote Greasy Sppon. It is meant to say Greasy Spoon. You know this. It’s a simple typo. Get off my back!

They do have a little restaurant in them though don’t they? Not sure who uses them over a fast food outlet though.

Some of these I can only pick one, either because the others are so bad or I’ve not been.

KFC, gbk, pizza hut and hungry horse are all shite


I’ve never eaten at: Wagamama, Giraffe, Chiquitos, Carluccio’s, Yo! Sushi or Jamie’s Italian.

Am I missing anything?

Wagamamas is the best ubiquitous chain at that £10 a main meal price point imo


Yeah didn’t vote in that one, kick them all out for registering ineligible food.

I voted for my favourite in each group, have I made a terrible mistake? It felt harsh voting for Local Indian (great food, terrible service) over Wagamama (genuinely enjoy their food) when I could have voted for both.

Can we start again please?

Still don’t know what a Giraffe is

Big neck, 4 legs, vegetarian


:+1: Done! All is right with the universe again.

Might vote for chiuitos because whatever it is it can’t be worse than nandos or domino’s.

Or can it???
