    This is the only thing you get to use malt vinegar on. Lemon has hundreds of applications.

    I never play these voting threads but I'm hooked on this one (pun intended).

    Malt vinegar. Absolutely.

    Also, malt vinegar has zero calories, and it adds an amazing flavor to any vegetable or healthy starch such as quinoa. You'd be surprised what sprinkling malt vinegar on broccoli and cauliflower, and then some oregano, can do. Unbelievable flavor.

    Lemon.
    To me, it really enhances the flavor of any fried fish or seafood (and raw oysters). I've tried malt vinegar, but prefer lemon.

    Is this maybe a regional thing? Some places here have the vinegar available, but most all restaurants provide lemon.

    Good question. Anyone from Ol' Blighty care to tell us what you do in your region?

    None. Local homies Pete’s Fish N Chips hot sauce. You haven’t lived until you had it.

    No such thing. It's malt vinegar (made from grain) or apple cider vinegar (made from apples). Pick one.

    The malt vinegar ( I think) is for the chips, no?
    ( I actually like lemon and tartar sauce on the fish)

    I never got the fish/lemon thing.
    I like both, but not ever together.
    Fish & Chips REQUIRES malt vinegar, IMO!

    For the traditional British fish 'n' chips experience, you must have vinegar.

    And curry sauce, that's quite popular on yer chips these days too. ;)
