English Fish n' Chips

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Fish & Chips is the quintessential British meal while it faces formidable competition from curries and burgers Fish & Chips remains a strong London favourite. For now I'm gonna take you inside a chippy which is the British term for a fish & chips shop. And the chippy we're at today is called Fish Bone. Most chippies have a basic set of furniture, many adding communal tables and chairs and take away is a very common option. Many upscale restaurants serve fish & chips as well but chippies are a quicker and cheaper option. There we go. Here is our fish & chips. Here you are. Enjoy that. Thank you very much. Fish & chips is often served with salt and vinegar. Look at our piece of cod which is fried in batter and we've got our chips which are like French fries but thicker. We've been here for 35 years. People do prefer to have fish & chips as a meal specially the foreigners because they want to try the British food The piece of fish we had was a lovely piece of cod but you can also have other types of fish such as haddock, seabass, plaice, skate. There are many different stories about how fish & chips originated. In an early reference, Charles Dickens mentions fried fish warehouses in his novel Oliver Twist back in the 19th century. The fish & chips combination is so loved by the British. It was one of the few foods not rationed during the Second World War. There are many variations of fish & chips around the globe. You can even get a Chinese fish & chips which interestingly has sugar added to the mix. When picking a chippy what you want to know is if the fish is fresh and is fried on the premises like here at Fish Bone and not frozen. I'm Peter Halpin showing you London.
