fish and chip shops
« on: March 10, 2021, 03:35:48 PM »
can someone please tell me why chip shops charge a fortune for chips and then give you enough for at least 4 people. My local chippy charges £2.30 for a portion i'm a big eater but far to many for two of us

Most chippies seem to do a smaller portion and in some cases a "cone" portion (not in a cone but less than a "small" portion) have you ever asked if they can do a smaller portion for you (at a reduced cost of course) it might be worth a try (at worst they can only say no)

Simple, do what I do. Buy one portion for the two of us.

If you can't handle the amount of chips you get, do what I did a couple of times when I was a kid . My sister when courting used to bring me a packet of chips when she got in late during the 50's . I ate half on Friday night and had the rest on Saturday morning . Get it down you what a breakfast Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
