The 2006 edition of Jeddah today listed Harry Ramsden as having an outlet in Jeddah. We went to the area, looked around and could not find it. We even interrogated the doorman at another restaurant in the general area who noted that it was there but had closed many months before.
Imagine then my pleasure at discovering in the 2007 edition of Jeddah today, Harry Ramsden’s listed again – and at a different address. Tonight it was to be Fish and Chips. Eighteen months in Mongolia, a few months in Thailand, China, Hong Kong and such and only brief visits to Australia had left me hanging out severely for a fried Haddock and chips and some mushy peas.
With mouth suitably salivating the phone number of the restaurant was dialled to check the address and to find out about their delivery service. “I’m sorry sir, there is no Harry Ramsden’s Fish and Chip Restaurant here.”
