    Whatever happened to chicken in a basket?

    Was once all the rage,wannabe trendies ordered it-some really ambitious eateries even did scampi in a basket.

    Havent seen it for years tho-I miss those baskets.

    sounds classy:whistling:

    I remember fries n chicken in a lil plastic basket ( that was meant to look like wicker!- the basket, not the chicken! )

    and lil red and white squared tissue to absorb up all the fat to remind you of a traditional tablecloth.........

    Wahhhhhhhhhh where has my world gone!!

    It's been replaced by all the fast food eateries.

    I have a VERY vague memory of being on holiday as a kid with my parents and seeing some woman in a shiny wig dancing on a stage while I ate chicken in a basket......

    I wonder where the hell they'd taken me! :w00t:;-)
