You're probably better off dining at Mr. Hing's hardware shop.

Wow, surprising, Google can't find a single page or image about "spam-rounder" or "spam-rounders". Even without the hyphen, no food-related hits (if you can call spam food).

Sorry, I'm not British. Could somebody enlighten this curious gourmet, please?

maybe someone should buy Pierre this:

We used to get Spam Fritters at school dinners and in the chippies down South, which is basically what a spam rounder is. I must remind you all that Spam is oblong in shape but the fritters were alays round as I imagine Spam Rounders are which means they were probably made using an inferior luncheon meat.

Luncheon meat on Lamma can be round or oblong. The new frozen meat shop sells the round cans of Chinese Ma Ling "inferioir luncheon meat" at only $4/can, as I noticed during my "research".

If you slice that horizontally you'll get spam-rounders. And the shop is just next door to the Chip Chop Shop, so it's very easy and quick for the staff to restock quickly when they've run out of spam-rounders after ETAGT's visit!

They're putting meat in Spam now? Is there a shortage of dung and sawdust already? How low can they go :huh:

The cod pieces have to be pretty HUMONGOUS to justify the $55 price...

Or did you refer to the cod piece of THE ONE, as he called his new, just-opened "Martial Gym" in Central?
THE ONE, aka Matrix's Neo and The One in the Jet Li movie of the same title...

An inch-thick slice of finest Spam, dipped in batter and fried in oil that is only changed when Derby County win the cup (the same oil, therefore, since 1946).

You'd love 'em, Gung.

The venue? Gerrard Street Fish Bar, Derby, UK.

And look: (http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/community/goldcard/discounts/G/gerard_street_fish_bar.asp) they even give a discount for the disabled and elderly.

In fact, legend has it that ETAGT ate six spam-rounders in one sitting, thereby becoming the only man ever to beat the spam-rounder challenge.

You'd never know it to look at him.

Although I would like to lay clam that I did, indeed, compete the Spam-rounder challenge, I cannot. Even I, a man with the culinary habits of a drift of swine could not manage such an enormous feat.

I expect the Full Monty could teach people a special spamartial art for such feats. Full contact Spam-Kwan-Go or something. There's probably a World championship belt somewhere no on knows about.

If anyone else is fortunate enough to go to Derby, here’s a list of all the Chippies - http://www.locallife.co.uk/derby/fishandchips3.asp

Unfortunately, they don’t all serve the legendary Spam-rounder. In fact, as far as I know, Gerrard Street Fish Bar is the only Chippie in Derby to do so. Gerrard Street Fish Bar also serves the renowned Battered Black Pudding.

Give it a try if your ever in the area.

Being from texas i missed chilli. too busy to make it, but not in to those concotions they call chilli elsewhere. Yes, the FCC has an awful chilli. The full monty has a decent chilli con carne for 35. now you get a choice of chips or rice. I would recommend that they change the choice to tortilla chips or damn the most common chip in HK the dorito which i now hate. ( no more nachos with doritos! people) , or rice. lets be honest they chips are soggy not crisp so do not bother. they should also add a layer of cheese on the chilli at request and they woulld indeed be on to something awesome. the staff is great and the prices are high but you should pay extra for the luxury of slow suicide by fried food like smoking.

My inagural purchase at the Full Monty of a 'chicken mushroom pitta' went from the plate to the bin. Disgusting. Even my family advised me not to eat it. When does a 'chicken mushroom pitta' have prawns as part of its ingredients? The pitta bread was so soggy that it stuck to the plate after leaving the foil wrap. The prawns looked old and smelt vile and were unexpected nasty visitors.

What is the point of having a take-away run by tupperware boxes and a microwave? I want my $40 back. I feel ill after the smell of it.

Thank you for enlightening us about "spam rounders" Mr. The Ferry. I never cease to be amazed at the quaint and ingenious concoctions and cusoms of of the British working class. Next time I need to do a tour of disadvantaged areas like Derby I will be sure that there is an ample supply of these in the boot of the Daimler to distribute to the poor. It always gives me great pleasure to see these people's faces light up when given such treats.

:lol: :lol: :lol:
Thank you, your majesty, your glorious generosity is legendary!
Your most humble subjects will surely be eternally grateful for this most graceful royal gesture!

What about distributing these royal treats on Lamma freely as well to the many disadvantaged Britishers still living here, remnants of your empire who got stuck here after the Handover.

Is this the secret mission behind Chris Patten's visit to HK in a few days?
I thought it was just for signing his new book and testing the new location of his favourite egg tarts?
