Chips are French Fries, usually thicker in UK though.

BTW, Bangers are Pork Sausages.
That sounds good. Man, I'm getting hungry now. lol

Personally I love it, also sub poll, when had on toast do you use butter/marge as well?
I had that once. I think it's terrible.

Burger and Chips, Wetherspoons Chain (cheap pubs)


Fish and Chips with Scraps and Curry Sauce

Re: What do British people eat?

Underboiled eggs, white toast, soft butter. IMO an english breakfast is one of the least inviting meals I've seen... They've got Burger King though... As if that's any better...

Give me brown cheese any day!

Re: What do British people eat?

A 'sarnie' is another word for a sambo.

A saussie sambo, would be a sarnie with sausages on it, although to maintain alliteration, 'buttie' can be used as a substitute for sarnie or sambo, eg 'bacon buttie'.

Baked beans, toast, eggs, rashers, hash-browns & pudding (black & white) is a great cure for a hangover. We keep it a secret because you yanks are fat enough as it is.

'Marmite' is a popular british savoury spread, made from shoe-polish and recycled tarmacadam.
Lol... that was pretty funny.

I've got bangers, rashers and both puddings in my freezer now
There's an Irish butcher shop in the Bronx that makes it all fresh, and the guy makes a sweet fortune. Far better quality than Galtee stuff, and on par with a typical Irish butcher over there. There's usually a line out the door, but it's worth the trip!
