So that you can differentiate easily between them and crisps, and not have to say 'hot chips'. With vinegar? Absolutely! And ketchup, must be Heinz.

Fish and chips in Britain is normally over-rated though, it is a bit greasy. The best fish and chips is in New Zealand, they seem to get the batter light and crispy rather than stodgy. Specially that little chippy in Waiheke island, it's great! They call chips 'hot chips' though.


pffffftttttt best fish and chips in New Zealand....???? nah mate. Whitby.

And if you can get a pot of curry sauce, all the better. luvely.

Or gravey and lashings and lashings of vinegar!!

Best way to eat them is outta newspaper, you need to be somewhere coastal and it needs to be cold and the wind blowing in your face!!!! And washed down with a cup of tea!!!!!!

God - now lm hungry!!
