Quote from: timahall on November 21, 2023, 04:24:37 PMI'd say choice of fish is something you'd only see in yer upmarket artisian chippys.
Quote from: Elderly Sumo Prophecy on November 21, 2023, 04:16:24 PMWhat about Australian and NZ chippies? I bet they serve something mental that you've never heard of, like battered Jooba Jooba fish or something.
Quote from: buzby on November 21, 2023, 10:06:32 AMLiverpool:Generic 'Fish', there's only one chippy in Liverpool I can think of (Byrnes in Walton) where you can specify the type of fish.
Quote from: cromby on November 21, 2023, 04:46:53 PMIn my experience a lot of chippies in Liverpool offer haddock OR cod? Our local certainly has for years.
Quote from: Elderly Sumo Prophecy on November 21, 2023, 04:36:16 PMSpeaking of which, I bet Canadian chippies are dire, if they exist.
Quote from: Mr Banlon on November 21, 2023, 04:10:39 PMDidn't know chippies everywhere didn't all have the choice of Cod, Haddock, Plaice and Rock on the menu.
Quote from: buzby on November 21, 2023, 10:06:32 AMAccording to their Pie Finder, Hollands chippy distribution extends as far down as Ellesmere Port at the bottom of the Wirral to the south-west, Garstang/Hollins Lane (just north of Preston) to the north west, Keighley/Illingworth/Halifax (just over the border into Yorkshire from their HQ in Baxenden) to the north east, and Wilmslow/Bramhall/Marple/Glossop to the south east. There is also a conspicuous hole in their reach around Prescot/St. Helens/Warrington/Widnes/Runcorn, where I suspect the local incumbents from around St. Helens (such as Pimbletts) have the market sewn up.

Quote from: timahall on November 21, 2023, 10:17:36 PMI'd never heard of roe until this thread.
Quote from: cromby on November 21, 2023, 04:50:04 PMAs an aside, I'm based in That London these days and have never been able to get my head around chippies leaving the skin of the fish on underneath the batter. Rotten.

Quote from: timahall on November 21, 2023, 01:10:57 PMIn my life I've been to chippys all over the UK and Ireland, and I've never once seen a gherkin for sale.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on November 21, 2023, 01:39:05 AMif you're older than 40 good chance you ate bhajis a full decade before you ever tried pizza
Quote from: timahall on November 22, 2023, 01:29:57 PMI'm 41 and i've been eating pizza since I was a child in the '80s, it's like the most basic food for kids. My partner introduced me to onion bhajis in the past 10 years.
Quote from: timahall on November 22, 2023, 01:25:24 PMAre the gherkins fermenting in jars like pickled eggs?
Quote from: timahall on November 22, 2023, 01:25:24 PMIn Northern Ireland a portion of chips is a "chip". I thought that was universal for most of my life until a woman in a Cardiff chippy thought I was trying to order a single chip.I also found out a few years ago that 'fish supper', 'sausage supper' etc. is not something they say on the mainland either.
Quote from: Theoretical Dentist on November 22, 2023, 02:54:30 PM'Fish supper' (and maybe other suppers) is used in parts of Great Britain – Scotland and north-east England, at least. As a southerner I'd never heard it until a murder in Newcastle that was widely reported in the national news as being for a fish supper (I assume it was this one in 2002, unless fish supper murders are common round there). Wikipedia describes 'supper' as 'Scottish and Northern Irish chip-shop terminology for a food item accompanied by chips' and Wiktionary lists 'fish supper' as '(Scotland)'.
