For those who don't know, a 'minicab' is basically a British sort of thing which is like a taxi, only you call for one on the phone and get it to take you to where you want to go (it doesn't get flagged down like a regular taxi).

I thought that perhaps seperating their two occupations would make things a little bit more interesting, regardless!

Is there an LA equivalent of The Knowledge he'll have to familiarise himself with?

We've got the same thing here in Eastern Canada. Call up the number, tell 'em where you want to go...

Those are pretty common in the USA (at least in NJ). We just call both the flag down cabs and the minicabs taxis.

No minicabs in Australia that I'm aware of either. Possibly because we have fairly adequate (a relative term) public transport in the major cities and insufficient demand for minicabs in smaller communities.

Yep, that's definitely something you don't really see in America :D

There are actually minicabs services in America I'm sure. There's one in my hometown 15 minutes from my home.

Bojangles. If you want something close to a British "Chip", that is still American and DELICIOUS, look no further than Bojangles Famous Chicken and Biscuits, down in what we Americans call, The South. It is a fried chicken place that serves delicious Crispy Battered Deep Fried Chicken, gogeous tasting "potato wedges" and a thick cut fries that are VERY close to the cut you'd see in a proper English Chip at a local chippy, with a bit of seasoning over them (makes them quite tasty!), and the ABSOLUTE BEST American Southern Biscuit for a "fast food" restaurant. And of course, when I say biscuit, I of course mean the AMERICAN biscuit, that Brits and the like might call a Scone or whatever. The savory bready type, not the sweet dessert "cookies" type. They might not be Fish n' Chips at the local chippy or pub English Chips, but they're pretty darn close and the light sprinkling of seasoned salt over them just makes them soooo good! :-)
