Fish and Chips



When I think of traditional British food, one of the first things that comes to mind is Fish and Chips. It is commonly a take-away meal.  I think there is one in every neighborhood.

Today we walked to a Fish and Chips shop not far from where we are staying. Miss K kept saying she was going to Ivar's. I guess she spent too much time in the Northwest.


There was just one man working. It wasn't busy but there a lady there in front of us and as we were leaving a man came in. There was some fish in the case ready to be ordered.


We ordered cod which is a traditional fish for fish and chips. The pieces were big much bigger than we would get at Ivar's.


We got four pieces of cod and three orders of chips which was more than we could eat. We didn't order mushy peas which is a traditional side dish.


We put malt vinegar and salt on the chips as that is the traditional way to eat them. Bob had some ketchup and HP Sauce with this fish.

Miss K is smiling as she gets ready to eat her Fish and Chips. She decided that she likes the British Fish and Chips better than Ivar's.


We enjoyed our fish and chips and might have to go again.

  1. Glad you enjoyed them. Chips and gravy is a popular dish in Northern England too, perhaps you could try that next time! Or even better, deep fried Mars Bar!!!
