Question of the day

What is your favourite type of fast food?

My answer? Well not that I am eating much of it now, but I used to like this take away place near where I live called donatellos, they do pizzas, burgers, bagettes, etc etc. I liked their chili cheese fries and there chili cheese burgers. Nowadays I dont eat much fast food at all, but I’ve promised myself that if I can go through august with no take away food eaten, I’ll get myself some from a place called soba, an asian street food place, I like their beef and black bean, and its only 10 syns on the slimming world plan, so thats a bonus! As I am allowed 15 syns a day!
