Lockdown 6

…(totally making this shit up)…

…had cause to venture out today…into the dystopian wilderness that my town has become…

….all I can say is….

…thank god for FOOD Islan’….

….mmmm…FOOD Islan’….

…(…disclaimer….there is not a FOOD Islan’ franchise situated in my town…apologies to all the folk in towns that support a FOOD Islan’ franchise, the owners of all FOOD Islan’ franchises, their suppliers and their creditors…and all who sail in her…)….

….(photos taken months ago whilst visiting friends in a town lucky enough to have a FOOD Islan’…..sooo jealous…)….

…remove all sharp objects from your person…

…keep your legs together and your arms by your sides…

…it makes for easier swallowing.

The Feeding

Scan 138

 

…if you’re not from NZ or familiar with the vagaries of requisitioning sustenance from traditional NZ Fish & Chip shops….

…”scoop” is a time honoured measurement for chips or “fries”….

….3 scoops will not be enough to feed a family of 5000….

…”um” is the time honoured way to start any order in a takeaway establishment in NZ…

…be sure you are staring blankly at the menu board when you utter this term.

 

Worth It For The Smoked Vegetables

….on the way to Marrakech…IMG_0476

 

…best misplaced advert I’ve ever seen….

…we couldn’t find it, so I cant vouch for the food…

…but I could say a few words about their marketing manager if you’re stuck.

Alfresco Dining

….in Brussels… can be a little more primitive than one was hoping for… but I do like a good buffet…IMG_0007

 

…found this in the middle of a block with very few doorways or drive ways… just blank walls both sides of the street….nobody around….

…the fork was still warm….

 

(apologies to Brussels… no offence intended… the food was awesome, the beer unbeatable, in a million flavours, and the people were beautiful…. but the buffet… oh!… the buffet….)
