A 'parmo', otherwise knows as a 'parmesan'. Is often a flattened piece of meat, whether it be chicken breast, pork, or in some cases, beef, coated in a white starchy-like sauce coated with Cheese (often parmesan or chedder cheese, not to be mistaken with the disgusting parmesan cheese).

Sometimes there are variations, such as different cheeses, or the addition of bolognese on top of the aforementioned meats.

This type of meal is a North Eastern dish not limited to Middlesbrough, but also found in neighbouring towns and cities alike and is favoured by many.

It is often served with chips and/or salad.
Person: "I would like a parmo please my good man"
Takeaway Merchant: "Certainly sir, half or full?"
Person: "Half please, I can't manage a full one right now, chicken with three cheeses"
Takeaway Merchant: "Certainly sir, please take a seat."
Person: "Thank you kindly"
