Fish & chips, Fried Twinkies, Chip butty?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Okay, saw a coupon for Twinkies in the Sunday paper...one thing led to another, and the BF said,
"Let's go get Fish & Chips!"

So we went to a place that has all that stuff & more (incl. fried Snickers, Mars bars, Reese's!) --
The ChipShop in Brooklyn run by Brits. http://www.chipshopnyc.com/

So bad for you, but so tasty! Fried Cod & shrimp & scallops & chips: yum!

Fried Twinkies (that's right!) with a raspberry puree sauce: yummy!

Skipped the Chip Butty, though -- just too much -- from my understanding, it's like a french fries sandwich? (UKers correct me if I'm wrong )

Oh, and a salad to balance things out (Granny Smith apple + Stilton cheese + walnuts + greens)

P.S. For those of you in the area -- it's tough, we can't decide if we like it better than "A Salt & Battery" in the West Village (also run by Brits). http://www.asaltandbattery.com/indexb.html

Chip Butties- delicious, take one bun and butter (lots of butter, which will melt and drip onto fingers when...) add lashings of hot chips with salt and malt vinegar

Chips are chipped potatoes, unless I want tortilla chips, which being half-American I still refer to as chips not crisps (also chipped potatoes but imagine using a cheese grater to do slices). My this is confusing isn't it

The restaurants sound wonderful- any mushy peas, curry sauce, pickled onions and wallies

Panini's (a chain all over Ohio and I think PA maybe a few other places) puts frenched fries and coleslaw in all their sandwiches. Drooooool... So good!

Deep fried Oreos are not as good as you'd think, although I seem to be the only person who doesn't like them.

Chip Butties are great, but they can't be the skinny french fry type, they have to be the 'proper' fresh cut fries on a bun with lots of butter and salt and vinegar as Nate said

OMG, I never thought anyone was as passionate about food as I am!

Welcome to my friendship land

I love chip butties! Every time we have fish and chips, which is not often, I ALWAYS have chip butties! Lots of butter is really important -you cannot have a chip buttie without butter dripping on your fingers!

I love a good fish & chips. Yummy!

The wife is Scottish and tells me that they have fried kabobs....and that I'm not allowed to have one.

Great now I want fish and chips....maybe I can talk hubby into them this weekend - we have a great place near us. Only problem is my gall stone...it will hurt, but probably be worth it!

I've got to tell you though, the fried Mars bar thing is something they do in Scotland

Correct, only the chips are much thicker than french fries

Must be one of the few because we do menu slides for fish and chip shops around the country and none of them have had those on the menu, thank goodness.

No wonder Scotland is high on the list for heart attacks

He was one of the first ones to jump on the fried chocolate bar wagon back when I was in 6th form, I remember walking up there for lunch with friends and he was 'perfecting' his recipe and asked if we wanted to try one, we all looked at him like he was crazy. Not long after fried mars bars were in the newspapers as the new 'big thing'

Yep lots of butter is the only way. I haven't had a chip buttie in a long time, lucky it's late or I'd have to go to the shops

What is a buttie?

It sounds obscene. I gather it's some sort of... sandwich? Heart attack on a plate?

Its a sandwich made with thick chips (fries) in between bread and butter

So it's a drunk food?

Is it like a bun- sized frenched fry? What's in the middle? I can feel myself in a coma just thinking about it.

so, it's basically a potato sandwich? of course, if that ever caught on over here, they'd batter it & deep fry it

OOOOH I love a chip sandwich too! It's an absolute dietary no-no, but then most delicious food is as far I can see

Uh, yeah. When we were living there, we could see why Scotland has such high figures for heart disease. Still, deep frying stuff sure does make it tasty! These days I prefer tempura for a fried food feast.
