Re: Jamie Magazine asks - your favourite chip shop?

My all-time favourite has to be The Fish & Chip Shop, Aldburgh, Suffolk.

..........but I have always had a soft spot for The Wetherby Whaler, Wetherby, Yorks as it was a delaying place on the way home from the Gt Yorkshire Show when I was younger............a day out should always last as long as possible, & boy the chips are good!

"Harbour Lights", Falmouth, Cornwall.....................I love to dip chips into their h/m Tartare Sauce!

I didn't know that................when were they first made there then? & are you referring to proper "Chips" or "Frites"?
They of course aren't the same thing at all!

Come on you UK forum members .... I know you slip off to your local 'chippy' every so often

So come on and "spill the beans" as to which is your favourite .

Anyone else care too admit that they eat chips out of paper !

Re: Jamie Magazine asks - your favourite chip shop?

There was a great little fish and chips shop in Paddington I visited last time I was there.  I can't think of it's name.   Just a little hole in the wall that made up your order as you watched.  Delicious.  Hubby says it was called Mickey's. 

Sabine,  I totally agree.  You can't beat frites. smile

Re: Jamie Magazine asks - your favourite chip shop?

I so wish chippies would go back to cooking in dripping.  There's nothing to beat the taste of dripping fish & chips, heavenly!

There's one fish & chip shop I know of that still cooks in dripping and that's Spud Murphys on the Orihuela Costas, Spain.  Long way to go though to get my proper 'fish & chips' fix.

Does anyone know if the Magpie in Whitby still cooks their fish & chips in dripping?  A weekend trip might be in order if so.

Re: Jamie Magazine asks - your favourite chip shop?

Oh I do miss English fish and chips  sad   We have fabulous seafood in Australia but the fish and chips are just not the same and the chip shops don't smell like English ones.

Last time I was back in England (2006) we went to a chip shop at the top of the road I used to live in, opposite St Hilda's church in Saltburn.  I waited 45 minutes in the queue for my fish and chips and scraps then ate them from the paper sitting in the park.  It was a gorgeous English summer evening, really hot.  I was in heaven big_smile   

We also had some lovely chips at Whitby but I don't remember which shop they were from, there seemed to be hundreds.  Obviously when people go to Whitby, they only want to eat fish and chips!
