When I visited the UK for the first time in '93, it was a present from my parents: a boat trip from The Netherlands to the UK. So I had my first Fish and Chips in a pub in Harwich. This did include the traditional newspaper and vinegar. I really disliked it then.
In later years the traditional British food has grown on me, and these days I really love a full english breakfast and fish and chips. It provides the calories my body needs (I don’t store anything in fat).
The quality of Fish and Chips is very different. I had brilliant Fish and Chips, but also factory prepared ones.
Calling the Forum for good Fish and Chips recommendations in London!
