Fish and Chips - Newspaper or Plate?

Ask a Question

I love Chip Shop fish and chips and eat it from the โ€œnewspaperโ€ as I feel this tastes best. I believe that some transfer their fish supper onto a plate.

Which do you prefer?

I prefer to eat them from the newspaper personally, although my local serves them in polystyrene trays instead. Still, less washing up to do, I guess!

When I get chips from the fish and chip shop I eat them straight from the paper. It does feel more enjoyable eating them that way for some reason.

I agree but my husband always puts them on a plate. I also like lots and lots of salt and vinegar๐Ÿ™‚

We rarely get a chippy but I can't remember the last time that I got chips in paper. Ours always come in the awful shutable poly trays.

Is it just me that thinks chips from the chippy are not as good anymore? As a kid used to love getting chips in newspaper with batter on top & heaps of salt & vinegar.

we normally but extra large portions and several extras and then share them out - so they end up on plates. Cant say I am that fussed what I eat them off - as longs as we get plenty of them! Lots of salt and vingegar and pickled eggs and onions and curry sauce too.

BlueEyesX we rarely get a chippy so when we do, it's a real treat. We savour it in the newspaper.....I'm sure it enhances the flavour and there's probably a scientific explanation to back that up somewhere ๐Ÿคฃ

Chip shops and take aways seem to have become so expensive recently. Wonder why that is?

We plate it up because we generally buy a large portion to split between us. That might sound tight but believe me it still gives large helpings. Might be because my husband puts a note in their staff Christmas jar and they remember.

We get fish and chips on a weekly basis and always bring them home and transfer them to a plate, probably under the pretence of being civilised or maybe so that no-one takes them off us? ๐Ÿคฃ Image

I feel so sorry for the fish in that gif, life taken away so quickly. It won't stop me enjoying fish and chips though which I typically transfer to a plate but eat from the paper occasionally.

on a plate for us as we like our curry sauce and mushy peas too and it works better that way.
