    You can also order them on line from Amazon, if you get really desperate! :) Much more expensive than in the grocery stores, though...think the Prawn Curry has gone the way of Chicken Supreme etc....

    Plenty of Golden Egg restaurants in Essex and east London in the 70s and 80s. Vividly remember one in the old Stratford shopping centre...rather think it has now bitten the dust in the regeneration...
