5.1 More on UK Food

Today, we ate at Tatties, a panini and potato joint. I also had some cola made with 19th century formulae. Loved it. Almost a flowery taste.
.
Yesterday, we ate at a Chinese place, notable because the Chinese places here always ask you "would you like rice with that" -- the charge is extra for rice. Does anyone say no? Today, we also had deep fried pineapple (because another Chinese place was out of bananas for deep frying).
.
The microwavable hamburgers in the UK are superior to most restaurant burgers. And Sainsbury trifle is to die for.
.
The college dinners and lunched are becoming repetitive -- all you can eat of 3-7 salads plus a fish or lamb or vegetarian option.
But there is always tea afterward.

Finally -- we are almost to the point where we understand relative costs. I am glad that the per diem allowance on the grant is so high. Even eating at college, we are burning through it and our savings quickly.
