There's a place near me that does a couple of Indian pizzas, and actually uses like a different flatbread thing for those than for their other pizzas.

While I like pineapple on pizza (and we usually add something to Hawaiian pizza when we get it) I agree it's unusual to see a menu configuration featuring it, that's not Hawaiian.

It's really common here. The basic pizzas are pepperoni, Hawaiian, meat lovers and supreme.

Supreme is a little bit of everything including pineapple. Pretty much any pizza chain offers those pizzas, gourmet places maybe because of the kids.

Also Hawaiian burgers (has pineapple) or added to egg and/or bacon in said burger which was what mine was the other nights.

It's a very small chain with 3 locations Auckland (our biggest city), Dunedin (small city) and Mosgiel (a small town outside Dunedin).

Pizzas, Burgers and waffles. Seems an odd selection.

The butter chicken pizza is also unusual but you see it in pies sometimes.

Decided to get fish and chips. First piece of fish I have eaten this year.

View attachment 136964

Chips, sausage, fish, burger and hot dog just to the right of the fish (it blends in. Fish was hoki and I put lemon juice and aioli on it.

A hotdog in NZ is a saveloy or sausage with a stick in it kind of like a corn dog in USA. A USA hotgig in bun with sauces is called an American Hotdog.

Chips and sausage mostly for the wife. Burger was a Canuck burger, bacon, beef, cheese, bbq sauce and onion rings.

Whole lot was around $12 usd the burger being around $5 of that. Got it from a fish and chip shop. They're usually owned by Chinese but this one was Malaysian and had some interesting looking Malaysian dishes such as laksa on the menu.

Fried and burger part of the menu.

I would die at that place. Happily!

Yeah it's one if the better ones IMHO.

Most fish and chip shops do the fried basics though and you find them everywhere. That suburb has around 4 of them, mine had 4 as well currently 1.

You find them everywhere done of the nicer ones are in flyspeck towns up the coast of a few hundred people.

One town has a pub, a bakery, gas station, farm store and an Indonesian fish and chip shop.

Mates kids wanted McDonalds. They got it but the adults had a different idea. We went to the Malaysian place again.

Introducing the Dirty Hot Hot Burger. Double beef, bacon, cheese, jalapenos and Sriracha mayo.

Hotdog and chips for the kids, beer for scale (wasn't consumed).

Burgers were large and kinda hot cost $9 USD each. Very yummy tasted like premium burgers from a burger joint vs a fish and chip shop.

Rest of the menu including Malaysian option. They do combos, burger, chips, soda for $6-$7 USD.

Approx prices in USD take 25% off to give you a ballpark figure.

I was invited to one of those YEARS ago to fill out a cousin’s guest list- some kind of class in being classy, as I recall. I had a decent time...left a bit hungry, but still a pleasant day.

Well there were 8 of them. They all left full but wife said they're not really designed for guys.

Apparently there wasn't a single male in the cafe. She said it was an old lady cafe lol. She drunk entire teapot of peppermint tea. More an experience managed to sample a left over lemon tart.

Brings back memories of England even if you've never been there. For Queen and empire;).

There were only a couple of dudes at the event I attended- dads, I suspect.

I’ve actually been to London, once. As a child. Got my first exposure to Doctor Who via a stack of books bought at a very nice department store. Probably Harrod’s, but not 100% certain of the memory.

But besides the usual touristy destinations- museums, armories, the Tower and the like- we didn’t do anything dealing with English culture. So no high tea or anything like that.

Made falafel again this week mixing it in pita pockets with that new hummus, smocked cheese and chicken. Capsicum hummus reminds me of an Indian curry and the pita off cuts get grilled and used as as a snack dipped in the hummus.

Think I can duplicate that burger to sone extent but I don't deep fry at home.

Gonna get some cheesy jalapeno poppers at the supermarket

Turned out very nice. Used up the remaining pita bread with Sriracha mayo, bbq sauce, salad, onion, tomato and smoked cheddar/Colby.
MvP was the caramelized onion hummus
