June 3 is "Fish & Chips" Day
Today fish & chips is popular all over, including in Canada where it is frequently sold from ‘Chip Wagons’, and throughout the USA.
Fish & Chips …. without Chips?
When my order came, the plate had fish and cole slaw and NO french fries (chips). I said 'where's the 'chips' and she said, well that was included in your choice of a 'side' and you said 'cole slaw'. What?! Wouldn't you assume that if you ordered a menu item that stated 'fish & chips', you'd get the french fries with it and the cole slaw would be the side?
The waitress ended up bringing me a plate of 'free' french fries for the misunderstanding, but I think she entirely missed the point. One doesn't order 'fish & chips' and get only 'fish'. Huh! :-)
Celebrate Fish and Chip Day
So, as you can see, a good way to celebrate this day is naturally by having a platter of fish & chips - order some up from your favorite restaurant (or 'Chipper' in England) or make it yourself at home. Serve with some tarter sauce (popular in America) or with a bit of mayonnaise (in Canada).
