Chips, wonderful chips!

It's that time of year again when the only award that matters is announced, yes folks it's the best chippy in the country award details can be found here.

People go on about all the health foods and the like but when it comes down to it at the end of the day there is no beating a fresh, hot, golden chip and a nice piece of fish. Yes, all the other foods are great and have their positves, you need your fruit and veg but when your to lazy and just can't be bothered doing anything or your coming home from the pub what better than a bag of chips to fill you up.

We found a good one and we stick to it, living in a city we have lots of fish and chip shops but we always tend to go to one because they just cook it right and not left to stand for ages as unlike in Australia, ours are not usually cooked to order but cooked and kept warm. 


  1. We found a good one and we stick to it…

    That’s how it is, isn’t it? In my case there were several takeaways in the town, but luckily the nearest was also the best: its real name was something like ‘R&L Gregory’, but for some mysterious reason it was called ‘Biffo’s Magic Chip Shop’ – I have no idea why.

  2. Ours as a kid was simply known as Billy's and he made great chips and now every chippy is owned by the Chinese!

  3. That is something I want to have before I die-authentic English fish and chips! Screw healthy, at least for one meal.

    Having grown up along the Mississippi River, I've eaten fish enough for five people-but I do like a big chunk of ocean fish once in a while.

    As for chips (fries), yeah, hand-cut, golden-brown, firm potato inside, fried in the fat of some luckless animal-can't beat it!

  4. Mmm, fish and chips. Pass the vinegar please.

  5. YD - hmm how your describing those chips is making me hungry I think some for lunch is what is in order now!

    Bangar - Lots of vinegar at that as well

    kimmy - you and

  6. I used to love the chips when I went to England but haven't been there for a few years.
