    Bought this a year ago. Finally decided it was time to try it for my supper.

    Really nice. Not as fishy as I was expecting it to be. A bit expensive at £3.99 a tin though. But at least I liked it :)

    Chowder never looks appetizing, but can be amazing.

    I had smoke salmon chowder from a sour dough bread bowl whilst on holiday in the states last year, it had so much flavour! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

    This evening we had quit a nice Thai chicken noodle dinner round a friends house.

    I haven't eaten all day and am just back from a few pints at the pub in the sun therefore I have far too many carbs in the oven for a normal person.

    :):D

    Moricha Lamb curry and Puri

    Love this curry, naga hot but with such a nice blend of flvoour.
    However the curse of the human body. Where before I used to be in pain,just a slight sweet on these days. It doesn't quite give me that chiili kick anymore. But so many hotter things be it sauces etc. lack balance/flavour. And heat with out flavour is pointless.

    Plentiful? Eh... maybe its the fact I grew up in a small town and dont get to a lot of fancy resteraunts, but I always look at those tiny little portions and feel like their slightly ripping people off.

    I know its all about quality over quantity in these places, but I still think they could give more, especially for the high prices they charge.

    Not cheap but wasn't too expensive! £30 a head for 3 courses which is pretty reasonable.

    I only really eat at fancy restaurants for special occasions and I'm a pretty big eater, but it was enough, probably because of the wait between each course so the food settles rather than eating all in one go and before your stomach has time to let you know you're full!
