As a young boy, I lived in Northern Ohio. We had Arthur Treacher's Restaurants.

Dean where is the malt vinegar? I'm glad you guys eat your "chips" with catsup too.

I had to hand the bottle back after we’d put some on our meal……. Its more popular than salt !

Jim is a heathen……. Please note there is no catchup anywhere near my plate  sarcastic sarcastic

It's all fun and games until an American puts a torch in your boot...

Or “sacks” their secretary (as my father in law found out sarcastic sarcastic)

Well test just go to rock bottom quickly - and what’s with the whole “smoking a fag” anyway!

And just what really is a “zedbra”!   sarcastic

It’s all good!  Really looking forward to some carry out fish and chips again the next time we get to overnight in Wick!  As well as the traditional breakfast!

While British style Fish & Chips have found their way into most parts of the world.....




.....the appeal of this quintessential British delicacy has never travelled beyond it's own shores. Something that screams England more than warm beer, Lucas electrics or the Queen herself, the "Chip Butty!"

I know there are expats here who will be salivating at the thought of sinking their choppers into one of these, perhaps even experiencing a pang of home sickness at the sight of one.  biggrin But let's not forget those other classic British dishes, Spotted Dick, Toad in the Hole and Bubble & Squeak.

Noel

Down here it's usually called a chip sanger although I, and others,  also use the term chip butty.
We don't have ketchup on our chips but, instead, add tomato sauce - they're not the same thing, there is a difference.
At home I sometimes cook chips and eat them from a rolled up newspaper cone with lots of malt vinegar. Brings to mind a saying about some celebrities "todays news, tomorrow's chip wrappers". Sweet potato chips are nice too.

That’s a funny thing - few Americans understand the US / GB differences of chips and crisps - but everyone knows what fish and chips are!  

My favorite in the local area:




I've grown very fond of corn meal battered catfish and "tots" once a week -

As well as a tenderloin (fried or grilled, depending on the week) and fries

Or tots......

I had some of the best little potato squares at a small little cafe on the MKT Trail in Rocheport, MO.

Seriously crispy yet hot and flaky inside, incredible, I'm going back as soon as I can.

Slow service, but worth it.

Yeah, my family over there think "smoking a fag" is hilarious.....we have lots of laughs over the various language variances between us. - one of the most common of which is the letter Z - "zed" to us and "zee" to them.

Catsup, ketchup, and catchup and of course their cousin tomato sauce , chips , steak fries ,french fries (the diminutive version ) and tater tots ( the ground up and pressed version ) .
 Just remember the tomato and potato (potatoe if your Dan Quail ) came from our side of the pond .

One of my buddies and his bride moved here from England about a quarter century ago. He was telling me the awkwardness of asking the secretary for a rubber.  Means two very different things depending on where you are from!

Yes!  Landed Southend and got COVID tests - came in from Wick where we had to park the plane for a couple weeks while we waited to get the diplomatic clearances sorted out for Africa after some maintenance delays in Goose Bay, Canada a couple weeks ago. We continue to Spain tomorrow, then through central Africa to Kenya.  



This is our chariot!

Walked over to “Thank COD it’s Fri-day” to get some proper fish and chips!
