How can I re-create chip shop style chicken chunks at home? Specifically I am trying to re-create the kind of fried chicken chunks made at NYC's A Salt And Battery
, in general I am trying to get that moist, crunchy, batter-just-pulls-away taste and texture found in fry joints. [more inside]

What specialty food items should I bring back from Paris and London? I am traveling to both places in May. Can you recommend some unique and delicious food items I can bring back with me?
(Any other travel recommendations are welcome as well!)

In a few days I will be staying with friend's family in western France, at a house they own. I will be in the UK the next few days.
Normally I would bring wine or chocolates as a thank you for the accommodation, but France does these much better and cheaper than the UK (I am told). I am Canadian. What could I bring that would still be a great gift, that I could find in London? It should be something like food or drink, and something of benefit to people on vacation. Price about $50. The friends I am visiting are French/Canadian and appreciate quality/luxury

[UK only] What equivalents are there to Pizza Express and Wagamama for different food types? i.e. ubiquitous, reasonably priced, appeals to all ages, and specialises in one sort of food.

What Japanese style amenities can be found in London? Most especially I am on the hunt for group Karaoke
booths (preferably with an 'all you can drink' policy) and supermarkets stocking exclusively
Japanese produce.... What's out there?

I can't always make it to my local farmers' market, and I'd love to arrange regular weekly deliveries of organic fruits and vegetables. I'm in London (NW3). Google turns up a ton of possibilities
but I'd prefer personal recommendations. Any suggestions? If anybody has suggestions for delivery of organic meat, eggs, or dairy products, in addition to fruit and veg, I'd be interested in those, too.
