Pg. 122: Friday Fish Supper


This is the Scottish “Fish Supper.” If you ask for ‘fish and chips’, or ‘an order of fish with chips’, or, gods forbid, ‘fish and french fries,’ you will be laughed out of the chip shop. I won’t tell you how I know this. Also, no ketchup. You must have it with “sal’-en-vinger.” That will make you, as the chippie says, “Wow. A smart American. Haven’t met too many o’ them.”

And, yes, it is that greasy. And yes, it is that big. And yes, it comes wrapped in newspaper.


“I want to hang out in Edinburgh with my friends and eat fish and chips wrapped in newspaper.” ~Shirley Manson
