I do generally prefer chips cooked in fat rather than vegetable oil, which is all you get round here - so I'll give that one to The North TM as they're still unhealthy enough to cook them that way.....

If not haddock and chips then a fishcake. That's not a fishcake made from mashed up potato and fish but instead one that's and from the bits of fish too small to sell normally sandwiched between slices of potato then deep fried. Lovely. Oh and mushy peas on the side please.

As an aside how far does the phrase "one of each" and "two of each" referring to fish and chips once or fish and chips twice spread ?

P.S what's a savaloy ?
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Seriously?  :o

We used to buy saveloy and chips and a pickled onion with our 12p school dinner money in the early 70s. How times have changed, now that would be more than £2.

Seriously. I just googled it now to find out what it was. They dont have those in chips shops in North Yorkshire and never have so far as I can remember. Same for Newcastle and environs. Is it a southern thing ?

Saveloys are found in Newcastle. A saveloy dip is a reet luxury.

I've no idea. I've always taken it for granted that saveloys were standard chippy fare.

Edinburgh chippies do them, although they normally just call it a smoked sausage.  When I was living there, Edinburgh schoolkids used to call it a "Dutch dong".

We have sausages battered or not but they aren't those bright red things google chucks up and are never called saveloys.

I think saveloys are generally a southern thing, but that's not to say they are unavailable in chippies in other parts of the country. Same with gravy. All though no chip shop serves it in my home town, I do know of some places that do. I just can't be arsed to make a 15 mile round trip to get some....

I used to love fish & chips.  Well, I did live in Skipton, and my dad got them once a week from Eastwoods.  I had the same anticipation about them every time (less often) we got them after we'd moved to Derby, but was disappointed every time.

Since forswearing the meat, I avoided for a while, but started going back when I realised a lot of places had started using vegetable oik instead of rancid lard :sick:

Still, choice is limited if you want no dead things in your wrap up, so it's been chip butties.  The chips have to be just so - not to thick or fine, and not too soggy or crisp - and are ideally topped with scraps.  Loads of salt & vinegar, soaking into the breadcake.  Just right.

AJs in Hebden Bridge serve tempura vegetables with their chips, which is grand, but I've never tried the halloumi & chips option :P

Clarion, Clarion, Clarion what are we going to do with you ? You're a Yorkshire lad and should know that only beef dripping will do for frying fish and chips. Frying them in vegetable makes tasty chips but its just not the same, you might as well get your chips from a Chinese takeaway.
I know your a vegetarianism but surely some things are so important that one must make an exception.

Our local chippie does a "special" which I think started life as a pensioner's special. It's a rather smaller portion of cod and chips for (at the moment) £3.30. It's plenty big enough for me.
Eating's a serious business. Don't bollocks around wagging your tail.

That's my problem with chippies.  No matter how small a portion of chips I ask for (even small cone), it's always to big for me.

I thought Scandinavians were big on deep-fried cheese, brie or camembert.
