My husband has been obsessed with vinegar since he lived here in the UK mainly because one of their staple dishes uses it.
I posted about British English here and I don’t know why, but I totally forgot writing about CHIPS. Chips in the UK means fries while chips are called CRISPS. Confusing, isn’t it? Or maybe not. In a span of three weeks, maybe calling fries as chips is already a daily norm to me which is why I did not include it in that blog post. 🤷♀️
Delicious has been a part of our take away Saturdays rotation especially if the usual Malmesbury Tandoori is full. It’s a store near the Town Hall along Cross Hayes and a lot of locals sometimes order chips only. We believe it’s their ultimate comfort food.
As mentioned earlier, they eat their fish and chips with vinegar. British vinegar isn’t too sour like the ones we use back home. It’s not something you can cook Adobo with because of the distinct malt taste but it’s perfect with chips along with salt. When I’m full, I order the small cod and steal chips from my husband’s plate. Here’s a photo of a single order of this local staple.
Serving size is really big for me and sometimes I can’t finish everything especially the chips. Enter husband to the rescue. 😎
My husband and I actually had our first date at Fish & Co. restaurant where we discovered we both like beer battered fish. It’s nice that we can eat fish and chips every now and then here just like the old times. 🙂
The photos where taken back in summer when the weather was not too bleak and sunsets are early like nowadays. I chanced upon these beautiful hanging flowers while we were walking back home after ordering our take away. Hope you all have a great weekend!
