Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Believe me what the Spanish have has no relation to Brake Bros. They even sell cottage pies, lasagne etc in individual pottery dishes, ready cooked just microwave and serve. This allows the premises,...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

I agree with the workers fuel, peasant food is usually tasty and filling, the same as English food. The problem I find is that people forget what English food is and that is basically peasant food,...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Basically it is no different to the UK, ranges from the utter crap greasy Joes to high end restaurants. If you cannot find anywhere decent to eat in Spain you cannot in the UK it is just a case of...

There used to be an expensive,(for the area), restaurant in St. Leonards GB and their menu was copied from the Brake Bros catalogue complete with description. He even multiplied the cost price of...

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?

Re: Are you living the life you moved for?
