I love this post! Food is one of my favourite topics and it's always interesting to learn about other peoples eating habits! Just for the record I'd heard of Long John Silver's before but I thought it was an American clothes shop
In SE London the majority of fast food shops are run-down fried chicken shops but they've been tightening up on hygiene recently. McDonalds, KFC and Burger King aside we have an abundance of Fried chicken, Kebab, Chinese & Indian takeaways, but there are traditional Turkish, Italian, Pie & Mash, Thai etc. restaurants dotted around too.
Personally I'm a sucker for a Morleys (Pic from Google Images)
I used to be a KFC guy but they've gone downhill and Morleys is only coming up, the chicken batter is tastier, the wings and portions are bigger (We joke that KFC uses pigeon wings) and it's much cheaper, although I think brexit will be interfering with that. If you ever hit up a Morleys I recommend the Magnum burger or the grilled peri peri
Next up is Chinese. It's nowhere near authentic but it's what we know as chinese food, although I don't get it often as it's usually greasier than the fried chicken.

My hands down favourite restaurant was closed down last year as they were found to be selling blow from behind the bar and traces were found in the kitchen (Which would explain why the food was so addictive )
Desperados was a Mexican restaurant & bar but I just used to order the steak...£20 would get you this: (One of the very few pictures I've ever taken of food, it doesn't usually last long enough )
The picture doesn't do it much justice but it was perfect...Their homemade peppercorn sauce was to die for! I've yet to find another good steak restaurant that delivers
That's a little taste of my Takeaway preferences, but i'd say chicken shops like Morleys and Chinese Takeaways are what the majority of SE Londoners tend to go for.
Wendy's looks awesome, a CUP of Chilli con carne? Amazing. I feel like Alan from The Hangover when he found Fanta in a bag
