Sorry- missed this post. Will second Tayabs. If you've not already been, make sure you try their lamb chops. I've only been there twice and both times it was rammed with a large queue.

Also equally good is Lahore off Lisson Grove in Marylebone. Much emptier but very very good food.

There's a great place near me in East Finchley/Muswell hill that I can highly recommend called Indian Rasoi but i suspect that's a bit too out of your way.

Mr Black, they were not too bad at all. Perhaps a bit over salted but pretty good. They met my customer expectation for crispness and soft fat with generally proper bite size attribute.

I do like it though when there is that one abnormally large piece in a bag, requiring a chomp in half, with a larger fat to crisp rind ratio. In this case, none were found.

Ranonranonarat, they are essentially pork rind - rather like the crackling from a piece of roast pork. However in this case they are made from the shank. Something of an English stereotype - in truth though not actually that commonly seen - but absolutely best eaten with a pint of beer.

Caveat - they can vary in quality!

/\ Oh, sorry I scrolled past your post to reply - thanks for the additional suggestions Mr B. 

No problem with East Finchley, happy to travel about.

I think the quality of scratchings has reduced in recent years- certainly the supermarket variety. The fat to skin ratio seems to have tipped in the favour of fat.

Country pubs always sell the best ones. When I visit my parents in law in Cornwall, I always try to make a little stop off at a place in Launceston which sells sheets of crackling very cheaply. pig skin heaven.

Tempted to get myself a sneaky bag at lunchtime.

I recall watching some food show* a while back and they visited a place making them. I've always eaten them but tried not to think too much about it, anyway as it turned out this place on the telly who I now cannot remember who it was at all, made it looked quite acceptable.

So carry on and indulge!

I was going to join Instagram today but then i figured.. I could just post a photo of my breakfast here.

Maybe later i could spend 2hours recreating a faux period workwear pic, should one affect ones face with dirt or just add via photoshop....?
