Cambridge food takeaways

Cambridge is now one of East Anglia's major settlements, along with Norwich, Ipswich and Peterborough.

Many of the buildings in the centre are colleges affiliated to the University of Cambridge, including King's College and Magdalene College. Colleges such as Trinity College and St John's College own significant land both in Cambridge and outside: Trinity is the landlord for the Cambridge Science Park, and also the port of Felixstowe; St John's is the landlord of St John's Innovation Centre next door to the Science Park, and many other buildings in the city centre.

Cambridge City Council plans to renew the area around the Corn Exchange concert hall, and plans for a permanent ice-skating rink are being considered after the success of a temporary one that has been on Parker's Piece every year for the past few years. New housing and developments have continued through the twenty-first century, with estates such as the CB1 and Accordia schemes near the station, and developments such as Clayfarm and Trumpington Meadows planned for the south of the city.

Cambridge food takeaways delivering food at home - there are always good choice of restaurants open for orders. Such as China Express, Magic Wok, Thai Chi healthy Chinese and The Flying Fastfood Pizza.

Is Chinese food healthy?

Although traditional Chinese meals are low-in fat and packed with vitamins and minerals, the dishes from Chinese restaurants and takeaways can be loaded with calories, because a lot of oil is used and many foods are deep-fried. It’s also easy to over order and then eat too much as a result. Get round this by ordering from local food takeaways just one starter and portion of rice to share, and one main dish each.

For great Chinese food takeaways in Plymouth and takeaway delivery in Ipswich.

Most Chinese starters are dieting disasters as they’re deep fried and come in bite-sized pieces so it’s easy to keep eating them – we’re talking sesame prawn toast, prawn crackers, crispy wontons, spring rolls, crispy seaweed and ribs. If you can’t resist, soups are the best choice as they’re usually made from a clear broth.

Using chopsticks can help slow down the speed at which you eat, especially if you’re not very good at using them – you’ll spend more time trying to get the food from the plate to your mouth!

Leicester food takeaways

Leicester is a city and unitary authority area in the East Midlands of England. It is the county town of Leicestershire. The city lies on the River Soar and at the edge of the National Forest. In 2006, the population of the Leicester unitary authority was estimated at 289,700, the largest in the East Midlands, whilst 441,213 people lived in the wider Leicester Urban Area. Leicester is the 10th most populous settlement in the United Kingdom using the 2001 census definitions and the urban area is the fifteenth largest conurbation in the UK, the second largest in the region behind the Nottingham Urban Area.

Henry Walker was a successful pork butcher who moved from Mansfield to Leicester in the 1880s to take over an established business in High Street. The first Walker's production line was in the empty upper storey of Walker's Oxford Street factory in Leicester. In the early days the potatoes were sliced up by hand and cooked in an ordinary fish and chip fryer. In 1971 the Walker's crisps business was sold to Standard Brands, an American firm, who sold on the company to Frito-Lay. Walker's crisps currently makes 10 million bags of crisps per day at two factories in Beaumont Leys, and is the UK's largest grocery brand.

Meanwhile the sausage and pie business was bought out by Samworth Brothers in 1986. Production outgrew the Cobden Street site and sausages and pork pies are now manufactured at a meat processing factory and bakery in Beaumont Leys, coincidentally situated near the separately owned crisp factories. Sold under the Walker's name and under UK retailers own brands such as Tesco's Finest, over three million hot and cold pies are made each week. Henry Walker's butcher shop at 4-6 Cheapside is still in business, selling Walker's sausages and pork pies, and is currently trading under the ownership of Scottish company Fife Fine Foods which bought up the Walker's butchers stores chain from Dewhurst's in 2006.

There are many successful food takeaways in Leicester such as New Hong Kong Chinese takeaway, Leicester pizza and Expresso Pizza. For more food takeaways please visit this website.
