--By Joe Duffer, translated by Crystal
Fast food British-style? Well, an authentic
British-style 'Fish & Chip's shop is promised by
Scotsman Duncan Inglis with his new restaurant aptly
named The Frying Scotsman, grand opening in mid-August.
There are 10 chip shops for every McDonalds in the UK,
as it's a traditional, healthier, cheaper and more tasty
choice, says Inglis. And, with fresh cod, haddock, plaice,
flake, barumundi, and shark from the UK and Australia,
Taiwan will be taking a step towards the same trend.
Hyperbole, no doubt, but The Frying Scotsman is a much
welcomed addition to the city's restaurant guides. Haggis
and Black Pudding (pending import approval)-a selection
of burgers, chicken, mushy peas, gravy, and traditional
pies-round out the menu. Tenants Lager and Ale are served
to quench your thirst. Fish and chips doused with malt
vinegar are great, but the sweet tooth is not forgotten.
The Frying Scotsman will introduce Taipei to the Deep
Fried Mars Bar, a rich chocolate and toffee bar coated
in batter and deep fried-a Scottish delicacy that one
should not miss. Pricing not available at press time,
but check the website for details.
