Agree with chips and curry sauce (though I'd prefer cheese & gravy) but when fish gets involved it's tartar sauce and nothing else.
I went to Hull a few years ago for the first time (for a Mick Ronson fan club weekend), and all the chip shops there do 'cheesy chips' - something I'd never even consider combining, but it worked really well. Especially after the pub shut.
And a curious thing, most Brits call a fish & chip shop the 'chippy' but my Dad was brought up calling it the 'fishy' - is that peculiar to the North East? Or was it just his family being awkward?!

We sometimes use fishy but chippy is more common.

It's the opposite with me, I hate the word lunch. Even just the sound of the word annoys me.
"Let's do lunch"
Fuck off!
Absolutely, Marky! (if 'absolutely' isn't too annoying either :mrgreen: ) Couldn't agree more.

For me, fish & chips has to come with mushy peas, and of course salt and plenty of vinegar. Adding tartare sauce or maybe tomato ketchup is OK but not essential.
The plate just doesn't look complete without that splodge of green on it somewhere.
Not 'arf mate. :mrgreen: Plus mushy peas are manna.

Can we all agree that pea-wet is an abomination?

Had to look that up - people from Wigan are odd.

Peawack on the other hand is a great cold weather dish.

Cheesy chips are great but gravy takes it to that next level.

Never heard 'fishy' must be a NE thing, always been chippy, nothing else where I've lived.

This sounds a lot like poutine. What kind of cheese do they use?

Poutine (when done right) is fantastic: hand cut fries, fresh cheese curds, and brown gravy. Should be served piping hot.

It's become somewhat trendy and I've seen it on local menus, but too often they try and get fancy with it. The basic formula is already perfect and there is no need to mess with it.
