You do have to wonder what goes into those cheap chip shop bangers, especially after the recent meat-based scandals. Suffice to say, a few moments ago I asked my local chippy if they were serving any today, but the owner checked the use-by date on the pack....and they're off! ;)

Haddock over cod for me every time. Possibly with a pickled onion on the side, not a great fan of chip shop peas.

Surprisingly, this topic is 2 pages in and without a mention (until I brought it up) of the peculiarly Black Country phemomenon that is the bright orange battered chip!

Fish supper.

Salt and sauce. Salt and sauce being a uniquely Edinburgh thing. Cheap brown sauce mixed half and half with water. Delicious but an acquired taste apparently.


Freaks the lot of ya.

Here you go:

The orange dye in the batter was allegedly a WW2 invention designed to brighten up a bag of chips and relieve the general wartime gloom and austerity a bit. I like to think that the orangey-yellow colour might be in tribute to the Old Gold shirts worn at Molineux; I'm probably completely wrong though.
