We like to have friends round on a Friday night for booze and relaxed "fun" food. I fancy something different but I'm out of ideas.

I've done:
Doner kebabs and wraps
Curry and naan
Pizza heaps of times
Cheese fondue
Chicken shawarma

Any other ideas for me?

What about chicken, sort of KFC style? You could buy some of those platters of breaded chicken, do lots of dips and sides with it.

Italian? Naice bread, cured meat, salad, pasta salad etc?

How about slow cooked BBQ pork? I use this recipe - Then serve with rolls or wraps, coleslaw, spicy wedges and salad.

Chilli bar? Big pot of chilli con care (or bean chilli for veggies), alongside rice, baked potatoes, tortilla chips, grated cheese, sour cream, guacamole, hot sauce and pickled jalapeños. Everyone can pimp their own portion to their taste.

Chinese/Thai-esque meal - spring rolls, sweetcorn fritters, chilli sauce, tamarind dip, black epper tofu, rice, some sort of green thing

Loads of jacket potatoes and sweet potatoes with various toppings
