roopoo BS: Ye Olde Greasy Spoon Revisited (62* d) RE: BS - Ye Olde Greasy Spoon Revisited 19 Apr 01


To bring it to the UK, (and also the home of the transport caff)... my son showed me a street corner establishment in Trefforest, Glamorgan, where he is at uni. This does a sustaining cholesterol-laced all-day breakfast which has saved many a penny-pinched and hungover student.

Then, closer to me, there's the Karachi in Bradford. This excellent legendary eatery down a little back street, though not English, is the Asian equivalent, I'd say. It is even listed with the tourist board. The most expensive dish is 3.50 and 8 of us once ate there for 32! The menu never really changes and is on one of those old fashioned boards with the push-in letters. Anything that might have changed is shown as white rather than yellow letters. I sometimes feel you could read it off the waiter's jacket. BUT the white formica-topped tables are scrupulously clean, as is the crockery. The food is great, and the service is excellent and friendly.
