    Pickled eggs were quite common in the Liverpool pubs that I once frequented. They go down well if you're a bit peckish after a couple of pints.

    The cockle man used to visit the pubs too, to sell little bags of vinegared cockles that you'd eat with a toothpick. Also quite tasty.

    There was a cockle man in Sheffield/Rotherham pubs back in the day.

    inevitably someone would ask if he had any mussels, to which he would say yes which always prompted the response well why don’t you carry 2 baskets then?

    Quebecois? From where poutine was invented? That's funny.

    A lot of people on the North American continent swear by bottled condiments and spice mixes and seem afraid of making their own if the BDC's any indicator. The amount of 'recipes' I've read here that include the instruction 'bottle of xxxx sauce' :lol:

    I can make jerk pork, for example, without using anything from a bottle. Et vous?

    There's a reason gals use vinegar for douche when it starts smelling like where whales go to die.

    Pickled eggs from the big bottle on the counter were lush. The white vinegar added an extra sharpness to your chips. After a few pints you didn't worry about how long they'd been sat there. :)

    My mother in law makes them, but they don't taste the same if you're not eating them with a bag of roe and chips walking home from the pub in the rain.

    I saw cod roe (tarako) on Midnight Diner. Not deep fried, there.

    Now we’re talking food! Funny you mention Jerk Pork, a flavorful dish from a former British colony, precisely solidifying my point! :D

    Je ne suis pas Québécois, I just live here at the moment. Mexican cuisine is more the standard where I’m from, but I enjoy most all foods, even both poutine and fish & chips occasionally.

    Lately I’ve been focusing on preparing Indian and middle-eastern cuisines, I find them to be a refreshing departure from the Mexican, Cajun and other foods I was raised on.

    Eleven pages about fried fish and I haven’t spoken up yet??

    Has anyone mentioned hushpuppies? That’s the proper accompaniment for fried fish, not chips. Everyone knows thato_O;)

    I looked up delicacy in both a dictionary and a thesaurus. Neither gave a definition that passes within a gnat's gnadger of the repellance that is London pie & mash. That picture is what I'd imagine an overused fleshlight looks like if it were to be dismantled.

    I'm convinced they're sold only to tourists, the drunk, to fulfil a student dare, and to presenters looking to milk 'heritage' for all it's worth for a local news slot on sub-prime television.

    May it never travel outwith the M25. Even the circular being breached should cause alarm bells to ring.

    Went to the chip shop a bit late tonight after a long walk. They’d finished frying so just put what they had left in a bag for us and did us a deal. Got a small fish, two sausage, a fish cake, three portions of chips and a large mushy peas for £6.50!

    And yes, salt and malt vinegar.
