Lotus House in Irvine

Hello from a rainy south Scotland! The first Chinese we selected was closed for 2 weeks so we came to the Lotus House. The usual 2x special fried rice, sweet and sour sauce one without soya was ordered. However this came back as Chow Mein and prawn crackers. The chow mein was ok, but the OH couldn't eat them so a return trip for rice was made. Apologies for the error were made, but we were still charged for the rice. (We didn't take back the chow mein, that's probably why). The rice was ok. The meal would have garnered a 5 to 6 out of 10, but because of the mix up we're giving it a 3/10.

Bliss Happiness in Edinburgh

Edinburgh today. About as close to our digs as you can get, about 300 meters. I varied my rice dish going for shredded duck fried rice. The OH ordered the normal special fried rice without soya.

9/10 - tasted fantastic, only not given 10 because it would have to out of this world. Ok, maybe it should be 10. I'd definitely return to this takeaway. Lovely!

The Flying Dragon in Stirling

We're on tour in Scotland, so a few meals a long way from home coming up. :)

This Chinese was open earlier than 5pm which was great. The usual 2 special fried rice, one without soya and a sweet and sour sauce tub. Unfortunately we'd had a family meal at lunch time in Cumbria, with home made flapjacks in the car, so I wasn't that hungry. I didn't manage to finish, but it was nice. Lots of meat, a fried egg and pineapple chunks in the sauce. Yum! Again no peas, but the pineapple definitely made up for this.
Overall, 8/10.
