So recently I have become addicted to cod, chips, curry sauce, mushy peas, tomato ketchup, black pepper, thick sliced white bread (buttered), all washed down with a few ice cold cans of Stella Artois.
For those of you not in the UK, the meal is from a Chip Shop, the drink is a 5.2% lager.
So what's your fav take away meal, and how often do you stuff your face with it?

I'm guessing take away means take out, so I'd have to say Beal's BBQ. They smoke the meats for up to a day and rub spices on it and dunk it in their BBQ sauce before baking (yes, baking) it for another hour or so to seal the flavor in. It then gets spritzed with their special hot sauce. I'm dooling now, so I think I know what I'm having for supper.

It appears that it is 'take out' in Yank-O-Speak, yes.

Wait, do you get beer with "take away" in the UK?

You can get Heineken here in Holland at McDonald's if I recall correctly. And any take-away restaurant or snack bar sells beer.
I never heard it being called take-out in North America BTW. As far as I know it is take-away.
As for the best take-away meal at McDonald's I'd have to say two McChickens with some chips and a choclate milkshake. Then, if I can still stomach it, a chocolate Sundae with little crushed peanuts on it, the greatest Ice Cream variation of all time.
Another one I personally like is getting yourself a nice portion of Belgian chips and a good shot of mayonaise on it and some salt. For those who ever visit The Netherlands, snack bars here have a huge variety in snacks that go perfectly with chips. Particularly notable is the "kroket" a meat snack with a soft inside and a crispy outside. I'm not really a fan of it myself but many people like it a lot. If you are in a pub in holland, you might wanna ask for "bitterballen" which are the small variety you eat together with a nice drink. Another notable one is the "frikandel", a favorite of mine. It is sort of like a sausage that is made from various sorts of meats minced together and then deep-fried. It's popular with different sauces and onions on it, but I prefer it with just mayonaise on it. Another snack we have here is the "knakworst" which is like the hot-dog or Frankfurter of Holland, which goes along great with some bread in the morning.

Yup it's called "take out" in the States, although the term often normally used for Chinese food for some reason (and not as much for fast food restaurants or other places). Love me some General Tso's Chicken though (which I've actually never seen in China).

I hear carry out or to go more than take out. I don't really have a favorite. I eat out a lot (due to a lack of dishes...).

Probably fish supper, though more regularly we'd get a curry delivered from Balbir's which is very nice.

General Tso's Chicken. @Token Girl: I think I read somewhere that a whole bunch of the stuff on Chinese restaurant menus aren't served in China or made different or something. General Tso is one of us fat American's extras. So we'll die quicker I assume

@Trin: Fish supper and a couple o' cans of wife beater, love it.
If I'm off to the chippy, it's pie, chips, jumbo sausage and lashings of gravy, omg mmmmmmmm.
As for 5hite food, I love me a bacon double cheeseburger (or 3) from BK. Also, I used to be addicted to Sausage and Egg McMuffins, super seriously, I was hooked.
Then there's Chinese, which is awesome and scrumptious like nothing else. <3

My perfect fast-food drive-through meal is the Chicken Nugget combo at Chick-Fil-A. It's very driver-friendly since everything is bite sized. Great for eating "on the road".
My favorite take-home-and-eat-it food would either be General Tso's chicken from a little chinese joint near my house or Pizza Hut pizza. Pan with pepperonni only. WELL-DONE!

@Rensch = I remember visiting Holland and seeing loads of stands selling cones of chips with a choice of 50 different sauces, I didn't have a clue what any of them were apart from mayo but it was cool, also when I went to the Belgian Grand Prix earlier this year I had the best chips I have ever had in my life, infact all the meals I had there were amazing.
As for my favourite take away you can't beat a good ol chippy.

This is good
16. Posted: Thu 3rd Dec 2009 15:56 GMT
That's pretty much it, yes. Although I've never understood the whole 'fish supper' thing, when 'supper' means 'and chips'
Wife beater FTW.

The term "take-out" here in NY (if not the majority of the States) pretty much means Chinese, Italian - most likely pizza or a large sandwich we call a "hero" (I've heard "hoggie," "sub" and "grinder" also, but... no, it's hero), or Mexican. Most everything else is either fast food, or dine-in style. "Take away," well, we know what it means, but "take-out" is the local flavor.
My personal favourite would have to be pizza, topped with sausage and sweet peppers from a local place here, washed down with an ice cold Coke. But Trin, if they ever open one of your spots here, I might have to trade up.

Yeah you're right about the "take out" mostly for Chinese food. Then we use "carry out" for pizzaAnd "to go" for fast food
I think I read somewhere that a whole bunch of the stuff on Chinese restaurant menus aren't served in China or made different or something.
Yes, I've heard it referred to as "American Chinese Food". And Panda Express is just the biggest violator of American "Chinese" food. I like them, but I think we can assume its not authentic.
