Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips
Fish and chips (and burger and chips) is a classic British meal to have at either lunch time or dinner time or for supper or for any time that chip shop is open really! :D

And that could be Cod and chips, Haddock and chips, Skate and chips or some other fish but Cod is the best and most popular of them all so let's say that it's cod and chips.

And I'm not going to lie, I do like a battered cod it's amazing! I love the crispy, golden coated crunchy batter surrounding the cod itself a juicy, succulent white meat that can only be anything other than satisfying and healthy for you.

Now I don't actually eat cod and chips that much as it costs about £7 for a standard cod and chips portion at my local chippy and I could buy more in shopping.

But it's a treat sometimes you know and that's about how much takeaways cost these days. Or at least in an area where I live which is basically a tourist town!

And fish and chips itself, I'll have to admit, it doesn't look like something you would see on Master Chef! But it does have its own appeal to it and has been thoroughly enjoyed by many for hundreds of years!

It's actually part of an English mans staple diet next to pie and chips or steak and chips or something but only because it's take away grub and fast food!

By the way, there was a fight in my local chippy last night.

Yeah, a cod got battered! Badum tss! :D

Pros
  • Tastes very good especially with a good dollop of Heinz tomato ketchup!
  • Can be had with something else instead of chips ie jacket potato, salad.
  • Has a really tasty golden brown batter that gives it a nice crispy crunch to it!
  • It can usually be ready from ordering in the same minute as it's all ready.
  • It's sometimes been fully de-boned so you don't get any bones in your gob.

Cons
  • It's not to everyone's liking as some people just don't like any fish period.
  • It doesn't really look all that other than the golden batter just a fried battered fish.
  • It can be quite expensive with some shops charging up to £20 for it.
  • It's a little bit greasy since it's been deep fat fried in a chip shop fryer.
  • It can sometimes have tiny little bones in it which are 'orrible.

Has to be fish and chips.

Living in a place where fish and chips is very popular I would much rather have that over a burger. I find that when I eat fish and chips I feel like I am more satisfied than when I have burger and chips. It really depends on the kind of fish that you have though. I always opt or Haddock when I order fish and chips but in some cases you can get some fish which is overly cooked or just doesn't taste that fresh, that is the only time I am not satisfied.

If you can find a place that makes good fish and chips and there fish and chips are always good quality then you can never go wrong.

Fish and Chips!

I usually don't like fish, but for some reason Fish&Chips is... different. When I tried it for the first time, i thought I wouldn't have liked it but now I eat it everytime I have the chance. It's tasty, it's good, and completely satisfies my hunger (and that, believe me, is an hard task!). Now one of my goal on my life bucket list is go to London (or somewhere nearby) and eat the real and true Fish and Chips. I can't even imagine how good that will be.

Fried Fish is Healthier Than Fried Beef

I guess the headline says it all but with all things equal - bread on hamburger vs batter on the fish - I'll take the fish. Stripped down fish has so much more to offer than beef stripped down. I went through an emotional breakup a few years back and act a chili-cheese FatBurger everyday for weeks. One day I had the urge to go but felt completely blocked. I had to use my fingers to clear the blockage but that let me feel just how hard as concrete eating fried beef day in and day out makes my stools.

Fish and Chips is Heaven for me

I have always loved fish and chips and order it at every opportunity. Burgers are ok if you are really hungry and there is no alternative but for me it would be a last resort.

Fish is healthier too, although the batter probably is full of fat. I love the crispy stuff that comes off it and always ask for them to put extra bits in for me when I buy from a fish and chip shop.

Burger and Chips

Burger and Chips
I have to declare, I love a good burger! And who doesn't!? Well some people don't, vegetarians, vegans etc, although they can eat vegeburgers but that's not the same!

Well I love animals but I'm not vegetarian, because I believe God intended us to eat meat else he wouldn't have made it taste so good come on am I right or am I right? lol

But seriously, burgers are very satisfying things when you're Hank Marvin! They're quick and easy to eat and they taste so good and and feel so good inside you!

You can pick up and eat your burger with one or two hands depending on its size and you can also eat it with a knife and fork if you wish hey whatever floats ya boat!

And burgers, they actually get a bad name don't they? They get looked at through different eyes in different ways. Some people see them as bad and evil things!

Some people blame burgers on the reason many people are overweight. But the rest know that all things in moderation and it's not always the case for some people.

But burgers are just food like any other and can't be blamed for being so juicy and tasty and satisfying and fulfilling. Can they?

And besides, the burger is basically something, wedged between two pieces of bread isn't it. So anything can be made into a burger.

You can has normal cheeseburgers, hamburgers, bacon burgers, chicken burgers, fish burgers and even pastrami burgers?

And how do you make a hamburger smile?

You pickle it gently! :D

Pros
  • Burgers have been very famous for a long time and loved by people as much as food itself!
  • Burgers are very adaptable and there are many types of burgers out there from hamburgers, cheeseburgers, steak burgers, fish burgers?

Cons
  • Burgers have a bad name sometimes and some stigma attached to them and eating them.
  • Too many burgers really can be bad for you if you're not the healthy type who works out.
  • Burgers are just basically anything sandwiched between two pieces of bread.

Burgers, burgers and burgers

Simply because I hate fish (to be honest, I can't even stand the smell of it... I feel like throwing up) and also because the chips "match" more with burgers.

Burger and chips are made for eachother

In my opinion burger and chips are made for each other. Whenever I think about burger then the first that comes to my mind is chips. It is a nice combination. Most of the time I enjoy a zinger burger with chips and a cold drink. It gives a nice taste to eat burger and chips together and it is a perfect meal if you are feeling very hungry.

It doesn't make any sense to me to eat chips with fish. Fish can be a delicious food item with some yogurt or some spicy thing.

So my favorite combination is burger and chips.

That might be pissing most of you but yeah I like burgers man. I like them well thick and meaty. I eat a lot of vegetables like I could be half vegetarian cause my parents are getting old and their trying their best stay as healthy as possible. I haven't had burgers in a long while, I just miss the tenders of the meat and bread. The best burgers I've had was KFC's BBC Zinger, their chips aren't that great sometimes but it still hits the right spot.

Burgers

I'm an American so I am obviously going to pick burgers. I grew up eating burgers at McDonald's or Burger King or a Barbeque. It's just a very well rooted tradition that I feel tastes a lot better than Fish and FRENCH FRIES. America Rules! drops the mic

Burgers!

While I do like fish and chips once in a while, I have to say that fish definitely isn't one of my favorite foods. Once in a while I get hungry for authentic British-style fish and chips, but I get hungry for burgers much more often. :-)

The kind of burgers I like are made on a grill outdoors. There's just a special taste that never comes with pan frying.

I do not need chips

When there is a wholesome burger who needs chips. Clumsy no doubt I would certainly hog a burger when I am famished. A burger looks so appetising and when one waits to be served and sees another one already at it that feeling is indeed different. I would prefer a burger smaller in size to handle it better, though

Burgerrssss!

Sorry, but burgers and fries are the way to go. Fish and chips are good, but the ultimate combination is burgers and fries. They just go so well together. I love having a burger with fries and a soda. The perfect combination for any occasion.

Burgers and fries also seem to be more affordable. You can get them anywhere or you can make it at home. Fish and chips is more expensive and preparing fish is more difficult than preparing a burger (in my opinion).

I love a good burger! And with a burger goes fries! I can eat burgers and fries everyday! But alas, my waistline won't allow it! Hamburger, veggie burger, crabby patty! Gotta go with a burger!

Burgers every day

The burger is so good. It can be prepped so many different ways but the good ol' classic cheese burger does it for me!

Burgers For The Win!

I guess if I grew up in a little seaside town I would prefer fish and chips. But to have a nice burger, along with either skinny or steak cut fries is ideal for me! Preferably done on the grill outside (or at least a grill plate in the kitchen). With your basics condiments to make a lovely burger.

On a side note, fish and chips are good occasionally. Consistently, however, I prefer burger and chips.

Burger and Chips it is

Of course here in the US it is burger and fries, but six of one half dozen of the other. I do love fish and chips as well, however, it is really hard to beat a good juicy hamburger and fries..or chips if you prefer.

One portion of burger and chips please!

Always preferred a burger and chips over the fish version.

I like fish and all but it's much nicer if the fish is well-baked and served with some oven baked potatoes with parsley on top.

Burger and chips are just made for each other. it's a heavenly combination and I love it.

The burger is also easier to eat while standing as you can hold it firmly in the hand. The fish is a bit harder unless it's a very small fillet.

7/10 times Burger for me

For me, I guess it depends on the day and who is cooking the fish and the burger. However, 7/10 I would choose the burger because I prefer the taste and it is more satisfying. Oh yeah... Please don't forget my Pepsi with that.
