we love 'em, good old fish 'n chips ...
An icon of England, and of our close neighbours who go to make up the United Kingdom, our nations favourite takeaway fish and chips is the winner of the Jan/Feb poll receiving 35% of the overall vote. Quite hard to believe in this age of deep-fat frying often being regarded as a less than healthy option! Also there is the issue of dwindling stocks of cod and haddock off our shores too.
Thanks to everyone who voted, including those from overseas who may have made this choice. All along it has been a very close three-horse race and at the winning post Indian came in second receiving 33%, Chinese third with 26%, and fourth American kfc and mcdonalds with 4%.
'The nation's favoured takeaway dish since the late Victorian era, fish and chips has only lately been challenged for supremacy by Indian food. Notwithstanding that, it is what sustained working communities in towns and inner cities, providing filling and nutritious sustenance to those who had to endure long working days. Even in wartime, although supplies might be scarce, fish and chips were never subject to ration.'
