    Clean v Filthy

    Clean v Filthy 13th Apr 17 at 9:40 AM
    Lately there seems to be lots of press about clean eating- low fat, low sugar, not processed, wholegrain etc.

    So as the nation prepares to gorge on chocolate I wondered what the "filthiest" (as in opposite to clean) meal you guys had ever had?
    I remember when I was a student the local market had "Chinese" style spare ribs that were so heavily coloured if you put them on a countertop they could stain it red for a week!

    I used to love a findus pancake sandwich

    I've recently taken a notion for pot noodles, The Bombay bad boy

    Used to go to a donor kebab place at Clapham South. You always knew who had been and had one from there as they were so greasy, the fat would get on your coat and set and it stank. You always remembered you ate one the night before when you were glued to the loo for an hour the following morning

    Peanut butter and banana sandwiches Elvis style. I tend to grill mine, and not butter the outsides, but I tried them fried once (with butter), and they were delicious.

    I think my dirtiest eat was deep fried battered pizza - I balked at the thought but was told to give it a try and it was actually so bad it was gooooood.

    My son likes a "Wigan kebab" for his lunch - meat pie in a buttered barm/roll

    Microwavable frozen doner kebabs from Heron. Used to eat them two at a time when I was a (huuuuuuge!) teenager.

    I had a thing called a chimichanga in the USA. Massive it was. Huge. Luridly coloured like someone had eaten a rainbow and vomited it back onto a plate. All sorts of flavours, textures and smells going on.

    I couldn't face it, and had a banana instead.

    White pitta bread, toasted, cut open and loads of butter spread all over both sides - one golden delicious apple, cored and sliced and put inside pitta bread - eat, yummy yummy in my tummy

    I haven't eaten one of these for years but used to love them when I was younger!

    This thread has expanded my culinary aspirations My fave filthy snack is Beef and Tomato Pot Noodle with a splosh of Ancona hot pepper sauce stirred in, persuaded into a crusty white bread sandwich with a bag of pickled onion Monster Munch on the side. A quality repast and no mistake

    When 11 and discovering the delights of 'cooking' for myself, I used the Breville Sandwich Toaster to make an egg, cheese and baked bean toastie.

    It was surprisingly nice, considering that I've never really liked baked beans much.

    The worst sounding thing that, for some inconceivable reason, actually works quite well, is the Bloke's Spaghetti Hoops on crunchy peanut butter toast with tabasco and a sprinkle of grated extra strong cheese on top. It's fairly obvious he was a skint university student at one point, isn't it?

    The most disgusting thing I ever encountered was somebody else's notion of macaroni cheese. Overcooked pasta, a tin of tomato soup and a full pound of grated flavourless bilgelumps economy mild cheddar. The packet mixes are cordon bleu standard in comparison - their version (which they'd inhale over the course of about 25 minutes with lots of slurping and lipsmacking noises, wiping their face over their sleeves and loudly declaring how wonderful it was) was so full of grease that it glimmered in daylight and after it had been left to cool slightly to avoid second degree burns, began to coagulate into slimy lumps.

    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll
