I'm pretty certain I just paid $18 to eat some Shake N' Bake chicken

I was feeling in the mood for some ethnic food tonight so I decided to patronize an Irish restaurant near my building.

 

In perusing the menu, I saw the usual Irish fare: fish n' chips, bangers n' mash, corned beef n' cabbage, etc. when I chanced upon something called "Donegal chicken".  Since I had never heard of this particular dish before, i decided to order it.

 

When it arrived accompanied by a serving of mashed potatoes and root vegetables, I noticed that it appeared vaguely familiar, like a memory from my distant past.  When I finally tasted the chicken, it suddenly hit me what I was eating: bloody Shake N' Bake chicken!

I am not kidding.  This goddamned $18 meal that I had ordered tasted IDENTICAL to something I can pick up in the supermarket for a couple of bucks.  As a child growing up in Trinidad, I enjoyed Shake N' Bake chicken as a special treat because it was an imported product and was pretty expensive, but that was a looooooooong time ago.

 

Needless to say that I'm rather peeved at spending $18 on that meal which further reinforces what I've always said and believed: never, ever trust the bloody fucking Irish!  Where the hell is a good potato famine when you need one?!?

 

I personally hold you responsible for this @projectmayhem!

You will be happy to hear @SFLUFAN that potato blight is a thing of the past now as farmers can accurately predict when there has been enough moisture and will kill the tops of the plants severely reducing the possibility of the actual harvest from getting blight

WELL, SHIT!

The Irish aren't white, so I don't see the issue here.

Their food certainly tastes white.

 

The food you're gonna get in an Irish joint in a place like Alexandria, VA is basically British food.

I've been to Ireland three times total and I must say their cuisine was fucking atrocious no matter where I went to give it another shot. 

 

Not as bad as the borderline dog food I ingested at a "local favorite" restaurant in London...but close. 

 

An interesting observation.

Shake n Bake is fucken disgusting as is Shepherds pie whoever mentioned that sloppy shit. I am half British and I don't believe there is one fucken thing from England or any country around there that I would choose to eat willingly. Black pudding is another fucken what the fuck are you thinking.
