no vinegar in New Zealand

I am a pom living in New Zealand. Here, they don't put vinegar on fish and chips, a must for me. We have kept emergency vinegar in the car. If you mention it, you receive a put down. Must have vinegar!

Gravy Baby

Got to love mushy peas and gravy mmmmmmmm....... or.curry sauce :)
—Guest David

Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic vinegar as an alternative to malt is really nice, and it gives the chips a cool rustic brown look. So Balsamic and sea salt on chunky chips and light beer battered cod. Small portion size though as even a small portion is minimum 700 calories.

Mayo and Ketchup

A blob of Mayo, same of Ketchup. dip into Mayo then Ketchup for the best tasting chipper chips :)
