Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps is the name of a popular English ‘sitcom’ (situation comedy) set in the North of England.
Generally speaking, a pint of lager and a packet of crisps are by far the most popular English snacks. Personally speaking, the tastiest crisps are cheese and onion flavoured, although my brother prefers smokey bacon; disgusting!!
According to an online poll, the tastiest snack in Spain is a tortilla, but I think someone is pulling my leg as it seems to me that people prefer to eat fried fish.

Has anyone tried the top-notch food at El Tapy in the historical centre of Malaga? Well, if not, if I were in your shoes, I would make a plan to go there with your mates; you will definitely not regret it!
The service is second-to-none and the waiters are hot! As a vegetarian, I have to say I’m bored, bored, bored of Spanish omelettes, honeyed aubergines and a few tomatoes and onions mixed together with enough olive oil to sink a ship. So I was over the moon to have lots of vegetarian options when I ate at El Tapy the other week.
Moreover, if you are on a shoestring budget, this is the perfect place as it’s as cheap as chips, especially if you order the ‘daily offer’. In addition, I had a blast chatting to the owner.
So, how do you write a restaurant review? If you are an Inglés Malaga client, you can check out my sample review in the Downloads section, but it you are not, perhaps you could follow these guidelines: How to Write a Restaurant Review

The big cheese is a colloquial expression used to describe a very important person; for example, the Chief Executive, the Head Teacher, the Prime Minister, or the most important manager or director of a company. Indeed, David Cameron is the big cheese of the UK as a result of the recent British general elections.
It’s that time of year again when I become hooked on drinking smoothies and giving my blender a full workout. People wonder if my addiction is connected tobeing healthy and I have to admit that it isn’t. Although it’s true, I am an active person, I can honestly say that I’m moreinterested in beingnaughty than I am in being healthy and eating like a rabbit! So, which side of the fence are you on? Are you a rabbit, or, are you a naughty zebra?
Finally, if you would like to try to make a delicious banana smoothie, check out this website. In addition, there are loads of different recipes to try if you don’t like bananas. Or, you could feel inspired and invent your own. Furthermore, if it’s past 4 o’clock in the afternoon, it’s definitely time to add some alcohol to all that healthy fruit.
To be cheesed off is an expression which means a person feels cross, angry, upset or annoyed. For example: The goldfish is cheesed off because living in a bowl is superbly dull. I‘m cheesed off because the recovery of my broken wrist is so SLOW! Well, truth be told, my emotions might be connected to the fact that I’m really impatient. What do you think?
To put off doing something means you delay doing it usually for these key factors: too boring, too stressful, too uncomfortable, too time-consuming, too embarrassing, too energetic, too expensive, too difficult.
Indeed, this week I have put off going to Ikea (too boring), paying some bills (too stressful), doing my accounts (too time-consuming), painting the kitchen skirting board (too messy), making an appointment with the hairdresser (too embarrassing) and buying a wedding gift (yes, it’s true, I do know some people who are the marrying kind).
However, I didn’t put off, checking the results of Leeds United Football Club (boo hoo, as usual, we lost!) booking my flights for an action-packed Easter getaway (fantastic, I have tickets ), catching up with friends (lots of beer and too many delicious snacks), or developing my strategy to kidnap George Clooney.
As I’m sure you will have guessed, to put something off means, you delay doing it usually because you can’t stand doing it.
To not put something off, means, hurrah, you have done it, usually because you are keen on doing it. So,
The British TV broadcaster, Channel 4, is looking for contestants for a new reality TV show about jobs. The first episode asks the question: Would you be a criminal or a law enforcer?
Well, this isn’t a difficult question for me, without a shadow of a doubt, I would be a criminal, specifically Catwoman, because who doesn’t want to look like Michelle Pfeiffer and say any of these lines:
”I don’t know about you Miss Kitty, but I feel so much yummier!
The thought of busting Batman makes me feel, mmmmmm, dirty!”
So, which side of the law would you be on?
Would you choose to be a criminal or would you choose to be part of the judicial system; perhaps a lawyer, a judge, a police officer, a detective or a forensic scientist?
To apply, write a short article to Channel 4 explaining whether you would be a criminal or not.
