little chef in popham

the first hestonised little chef in winchester, hampshire. you’ll find it at popham services, the first one you come to on the A303 if you're on the M3. its a good hour and a half drive from london but it was a fun road trip for me. two more have since opened in york and kettering (northamptonshire) so check it if you're in the neighbourhood as the food is tasty...

Prawn Cocktail £4.50 | Prawns with marie-rose sauce on a bed of iceberg lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes, served with a slice of brown bread.

Fish and Chips £8.45 | A fillet of hake in crunchy beer batter, served with chunky chips, mushy peas and the smell of the chippy!

i do like a good looking brown paper bag with some text on it... 'keep it simple' as i saying these days. the bag is actually made out of regenerated leather. designed by Setsu & Shinobu Ito for Regenesi.

some material info if you're interested: the regenerated leather produced by Salamander is entirely made of natural raw materials; genuine leather fibers tanned with vegetal substances, natural latex (extracted from rubber plants), water, natural fats and natural colouring agents and salts. and for the sales pitch: because it uses regenerated leather, the bag guarantees durability, colour resistance both to light and rubbing and a smooth surface. ooh

here are other illustrations done by luke although they are a little tragic! there are more on his website which i find too disturbing:
i think i've chosen the friendliest one for my waiPhone!
