    And fish & chips are fried in beef dripping, not poncy oil...

    Malt vinegar
    The only place that does a decent fish & chips doesn’t serve malt vinegar. They do have a decent tartar sauce and I get sriracha for the fries. Sriracha - the adult ketchup

    The curry sauce from Chinese takeaways is a cut above.

    There's always some of this in our kitchen :)

    All Italian takeaways up there, as I recall, couldn't find a chippy...

    My local fish and chip shop serves the best fish and chips I’ve ever eaten so a shout out to them.. I grew up in Wales which is nothing like “up north” so I would like to point out that never did I come across gravy with fish when I lived there for 25 years it was always mushy peas from the takeaway and if it was fish cooked at home Birdseye frozen peas or special occasions Heinz baked beans in curry sauce the one with sultanas in followed by Arctic Roll.
    Now it may be misconstrued that I ate terribly growing up but the fact was we ate three course formal dinners every night relentlessly being as my grandparents owned a farm down the road, now I’d rush home for a roast beef but back then I loved things like Arctic Roll and curried beans and did my hardest not to be there for anything else and luckily my guitar made it possible my 78 wine red telecaster...

    Brown gravy can do one but I'm quite partial to a styrofoam cup of mushy peas with a little wooden fork. Has to be bitterly cold out, though. And I have to be standing on a windy corner, near a harbor, with the odor of the seaport and the sound of masts clinking.

    My folks used to have a condo in ocean city, the good ol days

    Malt vinegar, please. The very best fish & chips I've ever had were in a little chippy in the shambles in York, UK, back in 1996. It had the lightest batter I've ever experienced. I asked them to hold the mushy peas and they were terribly offended so I accepted them after all. As I recall, fish with gravy was offered as well. I also tried fish & chips off a food wagon near the the Tower in Londinium but was disappointed. By the way, I was taught to apply malt vinegar by my father when we ate at H. Salt's in my hometown of Knoxville, TN. I began throwing malt vinegar on everything but have since retrenched to putting it on the fish only and catsup on the chips, thank you very much.

    The closest might be the basic curry sauce served in Chinese restaurant.

    it is reconstituted from powder in the chippy... there is ‘chip shop curry’ and sometimes a more hipster chippy might offer a more exotic curry with sultanas and other strange stuff in it.

    The chips and curry did originate in Chinese chippies, British chippies couldn't open on Sundays, so they often the only resort.

    Isn’t the Chinese curry sauce a different flavour than the usual curry sauce which has an Indian flavour but I can see that would be nice with fish and chips..

    If I was having fish as in cod, plaice, sea bass etc with vegetables ...lemon every time.
    But fish and chips as from a trad. chippie over here ... it's that unhealthy a meal to begin with it just calls out for vinegar and lashings of salt :eek:
