Nottingham for foodies(Reposting an older question, hoping for your input)
Constantly on the look out for local food legends, on my way to Nottingham I'm trying to find the city's most popular eat out places - the longer the queue, the better (as long as it's not a predominantly line of tourists).
Since posting this question almost about 10 months ago, I got to eat out in a number of places in Nottingham (and also some of the food fairs at the old market square). So far I can say I have about two-three favorites, but I still haven't managed to find the city's food mecca.
In other places around Europe and elsewhere I got to visit some local longstanding gastronomic institutions. These are often takeaway eateries specialized in a single kind of food (or one dish they're famous for), and many of them with their unique story and atmosphere.
In short, I'm looking for Nottingham's most popular eatery/ies.
I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

1I am regularly forced to stay in Nottingham for business.
Culinary delight for most of my colleagues seems to extend to All Bar One and steak in the Lace Market in the Crowne Plaza.....!?
To date the most consitently viable eatery I have found in May Sum.
I am naturally skeptical of 'all you can eat' buffets, but this one have some stuff, including really tasty prawns, and for £10.95 you cannot go wrong!
Otherwise I've not found anything legendary food wise in Nottingham yet, other than your run of the mill chain pizza_burger_tapas_chicken place.
That said just up the road from May Sum heading towards Maid Marian Way on the right is a cut through back upto Woolaston Street. In here is a little Thai place. Always wanted to try it (but been unable to persaud any colleagues!).
IF you like your ales keep going on the right on the round about is a modern pub call the Toll Gate. Looks nothing special but they are a CAMRA pub and usually have a good range of guest ales (my fav is the local Extra Pale Ale).
