2. Kuwait has organica (only chippe now where near as good as home though - its australian is probably the reason they used potatoe wedges instead of chips)
Went to Organica and scrap it from the to-do list unless your desperate for fish & chips (they have organica pizza now which is ok'ish but i hate to pay almost GBP15 for a medium pizza

They have cod swimming in the Arabian Gulf, do they? Its hardly likely to be fresh in the traditional sense. Defrosted most likely.

Its airfreighted over on ice and digitally maintained instead of frozen, same concept as Dhow and Anchor and Rivington. See if you can taste the difference...

Please explain how you digitally maintain fish. Its a new concept to me. So how much do you charge for your cod and chips? Presumably, if you are advertising on here for free, you will offer BE members a nice discount.
