Scotland is famed for its amazingly healthy Deep-Fried food!
Many people have heard about the mythical Deep-Fried Pizza, yet so few have seen it. Is the pizza battered like fish or just dropped in the fryer next to the battered fish and the flaccid chips?
The answer is seemingly arcane and mysterious …
Two mysterious chippy suppers
In the west of Scotland, in the towns and villages surrounding Glasgow, there is a delicacy available in some of the more discerning fast-food outlets. It’s called the Munchy Box (sometimes just Munch Box) and it’s a sight to behold. The one I bought for this article is a regular-sized one, in a 10″ pizza box for about a fiver, but they can come in 12″ or beyond for eight quid and up.
The box. Give me the box.
Upon opening your Jock Monsieur, you will see a layer of Doner Kebab meat on top of a Naan Bread, maybe with some Glasgow Salad (chips) poking out from underneath. The wonders that await!
mmm … kebabby goodness
Once the top layer has been removed, you can clearly see the two tubs of Sauce, the Glasgow Salad on the left and the Crappy Salad in the middle with the Onion Rings, Pakora and Chicken Tikka all huddled together for warmth on the right.
How much food?
Munchy Box was the £4.95 10″ from Tandoori Nights, Stonehouse.
