Nine Days in Glasgow

Sometimes I wish there was a "like" button. However in the evolving world of (scotch) eggs there are also these..
http://www.macsween.co.uk/recipes/hag... and i've seen places both sides of the borders serve them

Sunday Dinner rec., near Canary Wharf

How about Tom's Kitchen?
http://www.tomskitchen.co.uk/canary-w... or Boisdale if you like jazzy music http://www.boisdale.co.uk/

I always think Canary wharf is great for takeaway lunch and not so great for dinner.

Visiting London from NYC. Please help critique itinerary (researched)

I quite like the themed ones. A bit more fun. Like this for example: http://www.onealdwych.com/food-drink/...

But it really does depend what floats your digestive biscuit, so to speak.

Trip Report in May 2014 (Fat Duck, and Hedone)

Agreed. I'd go back if they changed it for sure.

"But sometimes the cult of the ingredient-dish can puzzle with its intimations of the Eleusinian mysteries".

Glad you enjoyed it. I think The Fat Duck remains my favourite ever restaurant and that is saying something. More than for just the food, It really is theatre.

What to send to a girl in UK

Boots (major UK high st chain chemist) sells the Disney Cars, Princess and Mickey+friends band-aids, so don't get those.
Reeces are increasingly easy to find - lots of places, including Tescos have them. Peanut M+Ms are harder so those might be good if she eats peanuts. There is also very little here available in "grape" flavour.
American cereal is very expensive here, so fun kids cereal might be good. When they released Fruit Loops here they had to change all the colourings for EU rules :D

Edinburgh - two nights - grain store plus...?

http://www.21212restaurant.co.uk/ is certainly good and you can just get 3 courses.

UK Equivalent of Velveeta Cheese?

I posted this kinda thing above. Seems Chowhound has got there also. Have you tried the sodium citrate by the way? Did it work? http://www.chow.com/recipes/30493-per...

UK Equivalent of Velveeta Cheese?

I've only had it in NYC and Connecticut (so wrong side!) and I wasn't impressed. California next year hopefully

UK Equivalent of Velveeta Cheese?

I always think of tacos and enchiladas as Tex Mex. I need to actually go to Mexico to eat I think.
This one looks more like that http://www.wahaca.co.uk/

This is a common one http://london.mestizomx.com/ There are a few others, I'll ask next time I see that gang.

At least in London Mexican food has changed since 2007. At least my American friends will eat Mexican food here now and not just Tex-Mex!

Would love to replicate "Pill Pockets" for dogs

I have found wrapping the pill in a layer of Pâté pretty much infallible :)

You can still buy it here in the UK. It was even quite trendy again recently :D

I nearly wrote about carbon vs non-carbon based life forms but decided the correct answer was Haribo's star mix and space dust popping candy.

Pret a Manger, Portrait Gallery branch [London]

Cheese and Branston is very traditional. Here is the original and it's ingredients.

Pret probably do their own style on that. They have a recipe book, but a nice branch may even tell you.

London july 2014

If you can handle the short hop, you could always experiment with Indian breakfast at Dishoom

http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaura...

London is very full of bars, You may want to specify what kind of thing you like, We have some pretty niche places these days or just the generic "suits all" type nightspots.

Which classic English spot? [London]

I would probably replace all of those with breakfast at Hawksmoor, dinner at St John and Sunday lunch at The Albion. Although Simpsons could do for Sunday lunch if you were set on it.

A Non-Offensive Universally Acceptable Meal

It is starting to be possible for us to buy quinoa grown in Europe so slightly more ethical. Not sure about the USA.

Good Eats near Victoria (London)

You could even go very British indeed and take them to the Goring Dining Room.
