I wonder where that fish has gone

File under: , ,

GLow - juice shop beneath Frank Kitts ParkA couple of weeks ago I wrote about a new fish 'n' chip shop planned for the waterfront promenade, underneath the Dibble. Well, the space has now opened, but to my surprise and disappointment, there was no sign of battered fish, sizzling chips, salt, vinegar or tomato sauce: just coffee and juice. What happened?

It turns out that they had intended to open a fish 'n' chip shop, but getting consents for deep fat fryers and the associated extraction paraphenalia proved too difficult. Hence, they decided to open as a juice bar and coffee outlet called Glow. No doubt the Heart Foundation will be delighted to see all that saturated fat replaced by fresh, natural antioxidants, but many of us will utter the plaintive cry: "where are our greasies?"

Oh, and extra geek points for identifying the source of this post's title (the answer is here).

It's from Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life.

Do I have enough points to exchange for a geek yet?
