Just back from a short 3 mile run in preparation for my next half marathon next year and waiting on our lass bringing home a chippy tea after she’s finished work.

large fish, chips, mushy peas and curry sauce with a battered sausage on the side.

What tickles your fancy from the chippy?

Ditto, but with brown sauce.

Special fried rice with curry sauce as a rule. Feeds the family.
If it's just for me, then Special chilli garlic.

However - I've just made us some proper homemade chips. Can't beat 'em

Saveloy and Chips for me, and a couple of slices for a chip butty. Although, if you haven't tried them, I can highly recommend Iceland's Hash Brown fries. Try them, you will thank me.

Large fish, Large chips and lashings of salt n vinegar......... anything else just detracts from the excellent taste of the food.

I've never understood why people have curry, tikka or garlic on fish and chips, if you want some of that buy an indian/chinese or kebab
if you want Ketchup, Brown or fruity sauce why bother buying good food just to ruin it when you could buy bad food and enjoy the taste of the sauce?

@samlill , no need to google them, i'm a midlander, orange chips are one of the best things that resulted because of the war ;)

If we had a chipper, and unfortunately we don't, I would have exactly the same as @Trogg.
Nothing on it except salt and vinegar, but the vinegar has to be Sarsons.
It is one of the things I miss. We make our own and they are fine, but it is not the same as being able to pop to the chipper.

Next door neighbour owns a chippy. quick text to him for large haddock and chips and he drops them off when he finishes work, usually around 8pm. FOC as well. It pays to be on good terms with your neighbours. :D

Double white bait @ £3.80 a time so £7.60 equal to a large cod,haddock, rock or plaice or even a middle skate (£7.55)
Don't eat chips anymore and somehow I don't seem to miss them, and a large side salad.
Over 3 stone lighter since April ?
