I like fries with vinegar- something I think the Brits got right- but not all vinegars work. I tend to stick to classic malt vinegar, tarragon vinegar, or red wine vinegar.

Limes hard to find good ones. I think we have a lime and black pepper flavour.

Salt and Vinegar I like but I don't love.

When I was a kid you could get fries with vinegar in them. It's an English thing I guess.

Haven't seen that as an option for a long time though.

Its not like you wake up and think "I'm going to go and find a nice English restaurant" and go there.
Miss Vickie's does a good Lime and Black Pepper chip. Kettle cooked, so they're thicker and crispier than most.

I suspect they're very similar.

Hmm, would be nice to try. Some chips that I am missing: Back in 1996 when I worked in Ireland, they had a series of chips, that had the theme of Phileas Foff travelling around the world, and writing in his diary what happedn in some places. There were to sorts that were really really good. One called 4 cheeses, and another type were called Devilishly hot.

Speaking of spicy stuff, I miss the Blair's Cajun chips and their Habanero chips as well. I want both of those in 300 gram bags, not the tiny little things that they have (the cajun were discounted years ago sigh )...

Yeah we used to have a French onion flavour and they were really nice.b

We've got a UK specialist candy store and they have some chips that were discontinued in the 80s and 90s but you're paying through the nose for them.

In descending order of preference for dipping fries in - mashed potatoes and gravy, pimento cheese, buffalo sauce and ranch, just buffalo sauce, just ranch, mustard.

I usually just season my fries, but occasionally, I dip or dredge. In no order, here are my most common ones:

  • chili
  • vinegar
  • Honey with black pepper
  • Lemon juice & black pepper
  • vanilla ice cream shake
  • avgolemono
  • personal mix of 50/50 A1 steak sauce & yellow mustard, seasoned with Tabasco and black pepper

I'm boring mostly just use ketchup,aioli or sweet chilli on my fries. Mayo works fine as well.

Wife's opinion. Fries are just a delivery device for aioli.

At a restaurant I'll dip then in whatever sauce comes with the meal. For example if I get steak I get peppercorn sauce and it's nice in the fries.

Tartare sauce and lemon on the fish also works on fries.

My Jordanian friend puts some sort of middle east spice concoction on his with cheese sauce. Very delicious. Kebab, falafel and dressed fries please.

Prefer American style ketchup over NZ tomato sauce. Sweet vs savoury basically.

I bet it’s something like zaatar, which is an oregano based mix they put in pita all over the Middle East.

No it looks like a paprika mix. Wouldn't be surprised if it is just paprika but I think there's something else in it.

I've had zaatar. It's not that.

1 NZD= 0.7 USD.

The next Arabic place I try that's bad will be a first, tried Kuwaiti, Lebanese, Jordanian, Morrocan and Egyptian.

Mediterranean/Arabic is my Mom’s favorite foreign cuisine. We’re slowly but surely working our way across the region! :)

Yeah it's probably my favorite two.

In town we have 6 or 7 Turkish places on a 1km stretch.

Have you had a Turkish wood fired pizza with halep sauce main?

Had a weird (but very good) burger today at lunch. It is a small chain from northern part of Sweden, called Bastard Burgers. And the burger I tried was the monthly special: Cloudberry BBQ sauce, cream cheese, pickled red onion, crisp salad, and truffel mayo.

Expensive, but good.

No, can’t say I have. I think I know a place that might DO something similar, but I haven’t worked my way through their menu.;)

Might not be to unusual except for the combo.

Chips, burger, hotdog and wontons. Fish and Chip shops tend to be owned by Chinese and they do burgers.


You might have 50-100 items on the menu.
We fed 8 for around $50 USD ranging from steak and egg burgers, chicken fried rice though to English style fry up.
