what? that chipshop is rubbish, tempered by the fact they give you free stuff if they're close to closing up. has it improved / been taken over?

the posh one in bridgford sells you battered monkfish grilled to your specifications. well posh. they even give you a little pot of tartare sauce. a pot.

George's is for cunts. Just remember that.

The one down TB is ace! The fish and chips in there are great, and they're like bastard machines in there; you're in and out before you've got time to look at the cover of Motorhome Monthly.

You used to go to Vicarage Road chippy. I'm not taking chippy lessons from you.

See also, the might Scollop,a giant battered chip, though some people who just don;t understand these things AT ALL (e. people outside of the Black Country) might refer to these as 'potato fritters'
The Scotch egg thing was just an example of a regional chippy thing I'd not seen elsewhere. I remember hot Scotch eggs being very good, but they were usually preceded by about six pints of ale, so my judgement may have been impaired.

I went to Bristol many years ago and several of the chippies there did a thing which looked like a giant roast potato, maybe it was a bit like a Scollop. The size of a big baked potato, but a roasty. I didn't have one though. Looked like it might be heavy going once through the crispy outside.

No,no,no A Scallop is like a giant slice of potato (the whole length and width but about 1cm think) which is then battered. And inecplicably that have stayed the same price for the past 15 years while the cost of chips seems to have risen exponentially.

Blimey Ray, I know what you mean.

Parmo on Wikipedia
Parmo or Parmesan is a popular food dish primarily sold in take aways throughout North East England, especially popular in Middlesbrough, where it originated. Its original name was 'Escalope Parmesan' and is made from pork meat or chicken and is served both as a restaurant meal and a take-out snack, often accompanied by chips and a choice of salad, coleslaw or creamed cabbage.
Creamed Cabbage??

Look at this, if you liked that ... Meat Feast Parmo:

I'm very busy at the moment obviously. I found a page on the internet all about fish and chips around the world ... and found this:
Australians tend to favour as an accompaniment the potato scallop (called a 'potato cake' in Victoria and a 'potato fritter' in South Australia). Quite distinct from the sea scallop, it consists of a thick slice of potato, deep-fried in batter.
parallel evolution at work!!

Apparently in Wigan they still do scraps and serve it with the juice from making the mushy peas - they call it Pea Wet and Scraps.
