Default Fish and chips

Do you use malted vinegar on yours like the limeys do? And what are your chips? French frys, or cut wafer thin taters like the Britts do? In that sauce what ever it is lol.

The best fish and chips I've found was in little kiosks in Amsterdam.

And yes, I use malt vinegar on ALL fish, shrimp etc.

I prefer Malt Vinegar to Tartar sauce but few places offer it.
I like French Fries and have never seen the thick slice potatoes,even at local Irish pubs, but I have zero love for potato wedges.

Yep, Malt like the Brits.

If you make it idiot proof, then, someone will make a better idiot.

Iím the odd man out I guess. I prefer the red seafood sauce on all my seafood. Itís a little hot I think from the horseradish in it.

My wife & I traveled in Canada several times. The best fish & chips we found was at Cow Bay fish house in prince Rupert, BC. But Iíve eaten good fish & chips all over the USA.

Back in the late 60 we had a couple of fish and chip company come into calif I think one was called Roads they were British owned and the workers were from England They server their fish and chips on a wax paper and wrapped in newspaper. their chips were what we call steak fries man it was great. Here in Oklahoma all we have in the way of chippies as they are called in England is Long John Silvers they used to be great but now they have branched out and serve other things besides fish and chips but their chips are French fries really not chips their best is the 2 piece cod fish dinner with fries and hush puppies their other fish dinner is a processed white fish. The two piece cod is good.

The only real British fish and chips I've ever had was at a little pub close to Heathrow Airport. It was really good, it was the first time I had ever tried the malt on fish.The beer ( or ale ) was pretty stout and the chips were spicy with some kind of spice I didn't recognize. It came along with a little side cup with some kind of
a dip sauce, i guess it was for the chips.

With the lay over I didn't get the chance to check out any other places. But that pub also offered blood
pudding which didn't sound very appetizing to me.

I will say that the lay over in England was a far better experience than the one I once had in France.
Rudest bunch of a$$ hats i had ever seen. And the food was terrible, i thought the French were supposed
to be fine chiefs?

The best French chiefs are breed with creoles and become Cajuns. Lusiana is full of them. Great food with a French influence n
