    So, as some people know, i'm a pretty big Indian fan, i enjoy my tikka massala; though i also enjoy a Chinese, sometimes they hit the spot a lot more when you're in the mood. But i also know that a lot of you guys in chat enjoy your pizza A LOT more than could reasonably be considered healthy.

    So i put this to the polls to see what kind of food TF2maps is into when they get the munchies but can't be arsed to cook.

    Chinese beats everything, providing you get it from a place that knows that meat is not supposed to be rubbery slabs scraped from the inside of a cow's mouth.

    If not (such is the case for this city), I'll take some hamburgers. Or maybe pizza. At any rate I stay away from Indian.

    Being British I can't resist the classic fish and chips, however I do enjoy indian , chinese and japanese takeaway food. I only wish there was more varitity in takeaway ramen.

    I wish someone around here realized that fish and chips is amazing. But no, we need MORE KEBAB SHOPS.

    I'm not too big a fan of Chinese or oriental food, so I'll go for Fish 'n Chips (lolbritish) or something American, like a cheeseburger or such.

    Pizza is only a special occasion thing.

    I'm a sucker for the all you can eat chinese buffet, but that's not the point of the thread so...

    There was this pizza joint I went to in college all the time, no in-dining, no delivery, carry-out only. But because of that they were able to sell large 1-topping pizzas for 5 bucks. Best damn deal ever. And the pizza was delicious.

    Wow, i wasn't expecting so many people to mention fish and chips since the vast majority of active forum members are yanks/non-french europians. Otherwise i'd have seperated it from the rest. I do like me some fish and chips, but they're pretty greasy so i'd only eat them once a month at best.

    Interesting piece of information though, the proprietor of a Fish and Chip shop down the road from me mentioned that ~80% of their profits were from selling battered sausages. Not from fish, as you'd imagine. Apparently it's a common scenario for chippies too.

    Rexy, we have 3 all you can eat chinese buffet's in Portsmouth. I feel blessed. In fact i rarely eat chinese anymore unless it's from a buffet because you get to sample more dishes; whilst that's not necassery with Indian food, so i'll usually order out an Indian as it's cheaper and easier. When most places charge delivery for orders under £10 around here it's very difficult ordering food for 1 and there are only 2 places i know, 1 chinese and 1 indian that you can get free delivery for orders over £6 which is a main and side.

    Pizza is expensive in the UK unless you're ordering food for multiple people, in which case there are a number of 2 for 1, 3 for 2 deals available. Though i hear London has all sorts of local take away places that do rediculous deals. I guess because it's very competitive.

    Around where I live there are plenty of places to get fish and chips being right on the east coast. I love fish and chips or any seafood for that matter especially clam chowder and clam cakes. Take out wise I think I prefer the restaurants that offer a to go menu, I think the best is the Ninety Nine. But then there are restaurants like 5 Guys Burgers and Fries that serve fast-food-type food but are more of a sit down restaurant.

    My staple take-out is Taco Del Mar. I visit the place often enough (and add to the tip jar whenever possible) that if an old-timer is on duty I don't get "wimpy" tacos.

    The second thing would be a Gyro Salad from this one place near work--primarily because its in walking distance--which is basically greens, tomato, and beef along with that tatziki sauce.

    Now, back in college... Cheese pizza, but the tomato sauce makes or breaks it.

    I picked pizza, but I generally will order buffalo chicken or cheese breadsticks from a pizza joint before I order pizza. The occasional Calzone from a different place, too. The Chinese joints around here make bad general tsos, so I tend not to buy from them, but some places aways a bit make the best general tsos and crab rangoon ever, so I order that anytime I'm near them.
