|Bet this lot have no problems|
I adore international cuisine and will sample just about anything - it was only a couple of weeks ago I was sat in a Dubai hotel eating curry for breakfast - but when I'm on the prom in England it's fish & chips I'll be wanting, thank you very much. Yesterday afternoon I had a meeting in Lancaster so met up with Steve afterwards for a jaunt across to Morecambe to take advantage of the lovely early spring day with a stroll along the prom and a bag of fish and chips. We parked up near to the wonderfully Art Deco Midland Hotel and began our quest for deep fried goodies. Perhaps I have a distorted memory of days gone by, or maybe it's just Morecambe, but I'm sure there always used to be a plethora of sea front chippies to choose from, but not any more it seems.

Eventually we found Sam's chippy, and what a fabulous chippy it is too. Fish freshly fried while we waited and a massive pile of wonderful chips, cooked to perfection. The batter was light and fluffy and simply melted in the mouth and it was all served in paper - non of that polystyrene tray nonsense. Giddy with excitement (or maybe hunger) we scuttled across to the prom and wolfed the lot as we sat next to Eric and watched the sun go down. I doubt there are many finer ways to pass an early spring evening so I beg of you, walk away from the KFCs and Maccy Ds and support your local seafront chip shop. Long live the Great British Seaside Chippy!
