Dragon Inn in Uxbridge

We're in Uxbridge on a damp grey Thursday. It's the Thursday before Easter and the day that traditionally the devil met with all the witches in Sweden. Scary day!! Maybe at the gig tonight I should tell the Easter story! So the usual food was chosen. Special fried rice and sweet and sour sauce.
The result?
Really rather nice. Good peas, good prawns, nicely done rice and a perfect sweet and sour sauce. I troughed the lot.
Nice. :D

China Star in Wrexham

Day two of our mini-tour. Today we're in Wrexham and found our way to the China Star. Because of all the allergies we always have to explain about the allergy to soya and try to get the restaurant to make a rice dish without any. There is usually confusion because we ask for two rice dishes, one normal and one without soya. It also doesn't help because some places don't use soya anyway so you're trying to get them to not use something they don't. One day we'll get it down to a fine art. Today I wasn't so eloquent and it took me a little while. 
The result?
It was ok. :) 7/10

Chop chip in Liverpool

We're back on the road. :) Tonight we're playing in Liverpool, so we entered our usual search criteria into Google. The closest takeaway seemed to be Chop Chop. We drove straight past it and missed the tiny little shop. But having got out of the car we found the smallest takeaway. I stood there looking at the menu on the wall, it didn't look very familiar, we had navigated ourselves to a Korean takeaway. I managed to figure out what was closest to special fried rice. This ended up being plain rice with mixed salad and beef on the top with a separate chili sauce. 
The result? It was really really lovely. A wonderful refreshing bowl of rice with very tasty beef. The chili sauce was quite strong and added a nice kick to the rice.
My score? 9/10
