The best scotch egg?

There's a small shop between Heal's and Habitat on Tottenham Court Road, called Peyton and Byrne. It sold us a scotch egg for £1.50 (surely cheaper than the Ginger Pig, if not than anywhere else) which was nigh on perfect. Not too much meat, but of top quality and seasoning, and very cripsly fried. A man walking down the street approached, and asked us if it was hot, its star quality apparent from several feet away. He was later seen clutching one himself.

There was a bloke at Bristol Food market who had a scotch egg stall. £2.50 an egg, and various types - Scrumpy (with apple)for example - but even chilli ones.
Was a treat to have one for lunch
