A MAN is concerned that a takeaway can cook and deliver his order in the same amount of time it would take him to make a piece of toast.
Martin Bishop ordered enough food to feed his family of six from his local Chinese restaurant and was horrified when it arrived within eleven minutes.
Bishop said: “Surely it isn’t possible to cook two portions of chilli beef, one sweet and sour chicken, three rice and 20 spring rolls in five minutes? Surely?
“With that kind of speed, you might expect that corners have been cut and the food has been sitting in Tupperware all day before being zapped to boiling point in a microwave and put on the back of a moped.
“But their website states that all food is made using traditional family recipes and freshly cooked to order. There’s even a picture of the proprietor John on it. He’s a white guy from Gloucester.”
John Logan, owner of the takeaway, said: “We pride ourselves on the quality of our food. Especially the slow-cooked beef with black pepper sauce, which takes eight entire minutes.”
