Get a Sniff of this Tasty Parmo Number Plate

August, 27 2009

DVLA

A man local to National Numbers in Teesside is selling a tasty personalised registration, a nod to Teesside's signature dish – the Parmo.

Parmo Number Plate

To the uninitiated, the Parmo is an "Escalope Parmesan", made from either pork meat or chicken, and is a classic North East delicacy.

Making this treat involves deep-frying a flattened chicken or pork fillet in an egg and breadcrumb batter, then smothering it in thick Bechamel sauce, before topping off with cheddar cheese (the original Parmo's were topped with Parmesan cheese, hence the name) and then grilling or baking in the pizza oven.

The number plate, P9 RMO is being sold on eBay by Simon Walker, from Redcar, who said "I seemed to see a lot about Parmo's in the media one week, and I was just messing around on the internet when I noticed the plate was available."

"I wondered if it was still on the DVLA website, and when I looked it was there for £250, so on the spur of the moment I bought it."

However his wife was not as impressed:

"My wife Rachel said 'I can't believe you've bought that' and she said 'you're not putting it on the car' so I thought fair enough, I'll sell it."

"But people I've shown it to think it's brilliant. They say how much did you pay for that? And when I tell them they can't believe it. It looks brilliant."

Good for you Simon, we totally agree this is a brilliant number plate! If you'd like to get your teeth into this registration, make a bid for it on eBay – before someone else gobbles it up!
