How about Redds? Its sweet and tastes like a cross between cider and beer... or is that just me?

Zubrowka... available in all good Turkish supermarkets in the UK.. for the hefty price of £15! much cheaper in Poland.. obviously

no problem..its great isnt it. not sure where you live, but you can also get it in some supermarkets and off-licences in the UK. Traditionally drunk with apple juice, ice and slice.. although Ive recently tried it with Bitter Lemon and Cranberry (not together), which werent bad either..

i live in norwich, but as you say, its so much cheaper in poland, so ill get him to bring quite a few bottles over... we used to drink it with apple juice too, shot of zubrowka then the apple, mmmmm i cant wait, and i know this is totaly off the subject of beer, but jacek, one of the guys i lived with used to bring these 'soya chops' back from poland we're both vegetarians, anywy ive looked all over for them and cant find them anywhere, any idea what they're called, or a translation??? thanks :)

sorry have no idea about that one, but Im sure someone else could help you if you start a new thread in food and drink. God I could do with a Zubrowka right now.. but Im at work so maybe not the best idea.

asda used to stock it...

intrestingly enough, whilst i was living with these polish guys and consuming vast amounts of zubrowka, i was working in asda.
thats not interesting is it......

not that happy as asda didn't stock it when i was there, so we'd have to wait for either someone else to come over and live with us or for one of the guys to go home,

okay, i was just looking for some help with the nme of some polish food, i posted a topic but no one has answered, have ever heard of soya chops????
BubbaWoo 33 | 3,510
5 Jan 2007 #105
yeah... saw that post...

what are soya chops...?

my local super market... asda again... does alsorts of soya products... sausages... mince... chiken type pieces...

we cant find them anywhere, they're dryed soya blocks, that look a bit like chops of a sort.... the reason i want to get some brought over is they're so cheap like a huge bag for about £1 that lasts months, and they just taste better than the stuff you get in asda etc, by the way do you work there? you seem to be doing some very good PR for them.

hopefully someone will know what the hell im on about....
so are you english or polish living here?
BubbaWoo 33 | 3,510

never seen them but as i am vegetarian i will keep my eyes open...

im english but do *business* in poland so spend a lot of time over there... nothing to do with asda...

If you mean those soya things that you soak first and they taste like chewy mushrooms. We have them in shops nearby. I have no idea what they are called or who makes them.

Zubrowka is stocked in my local Tescos. My Polish friends say it tastes different to the stuff back home - I dont think so - also do a few Polish vodkas too. Bit pricey though.

( Bison Piss LOL )

I'd reather not create a thread just for British beer, but I was weondering what's the best that comes out of the UK. I really enjoy Boddingtons on tap. Prob my favorite aside from Guinness.
9 Feb 2007 #120
hmm of the top of my head, these are the ones I enjoy most. Bear in mind, i'm not a big beer drinker, so i've certainly not tried the entire sortiment. :)

If you like Boddys, like I do, then try Caffreys and John Smiths

Another good one imho is Pedigree.

If you want lager advice, i'm not the man, can't do with lagers. Though I have it on universal authority, avoid Budweiser, Fosters and Carling. :)
