Fish & chips with gravy!!

Recommended Posts

I'm not a native of Sheffield so please excuse me if I'm not used to the local customs.

 

Yesterday lunchtime I popped into a "chippy". They had just cooked a batch of mini fish so I ordered one with a small chips.

 

The girl behind the counter says "Do you want gravy on that luv?"

 

"Gravy??????????"

 

"Yes." she says, "The mini fish deal comes with gravy or curry sauce" .

 

Fortunately I was allowed to leave without either. Do folks seriously have gravy on fish? What next; custard on the meat & potato pies?

Fish and chips with gravy is the best thing in the world. Perhaps you're just mardy bum. The thought of it makes me giddy (any other sheffield'isms I can fit here??)

Perhaps you just need to dine at better restaurants.

The gravy is supposed to just go on the chips, that happens in every town and city in this country on this planet, P.S, I have ordered Cod or Haddock from a chippy but never a mini fish, do they come in a short skirt.:loopy:
