The demise of scraps Can't Post or Reply Privately

Many of you travel round more than me, but less and less chippys seem to offer scraps, lived in Yorkshire and Derbyshire all my life, getting rarer here?
Is that the case?

Grew up with scraps, always a very welcome addition to a bag of chips wrapped in newspaper. If you were lucky you got the odd scrap with fish inside. Of course everything was cooked in beef dripping.



The feeling of utter devastation when you pick up your mug and realise you already finished your tea.

Both Chippies we use in Derby give scraps if requested, Zan Fish and Shelton chippy. Other half refers to them as 'Batter bits'

Can get them if you ask, but most places had a tray set aside, you would get asked, salt, vinegar, scraps. Try those, hope to get to Derby more this year, but come from the posh west side! Ha ha, not really, any near town?
And yes old Tykeboy the bit of fish in your scraps was akin to finding the club crest sticker, made of a sort of material for your Panini album

Only know the local ones, but Zan Fish look as though they are building a chippy empire, they even do Pride Park

What are scraps?

In London, it's what normally happens outside the chippy on a Friday/Saturday night...

Despite my plebian ways, and having misled you in that I was born in Kensington and Chelsea, the dripping led me north at about six months old. Still only 11 stone soaking wet, no not four foot nothing, still probably drop dead of a cardiac soon, Scarborough still has places that advertise, cooked in beef dripping, and they are the best.

Known as scraps around here and can still get them if asked for. Usually sprinkled over the top of whatever you are having. Seen them still in a number of places though more west than east. Live Faggots and other offal based products not just northern / West Midlands based but still readily available elsewhere.

Deep fried extra strength cider batter in Somerset? or what about Guinness in Ireland? Personally I would like deep fried Malbec batter on my next trip to Buenos Aires.

As a resident of said Scarborough I can confirm that quite a few fish and chip takeaways in Scarborough do use beef dripping still, also my local chippy does "scraps" usually a large pile ready and always offered and sprinkled liberally over.

As for Fish & Chip shops, if you havent done Esh Winning yet, go to Fields, still a coal fired range and yes they taste slightly different, more golden in colour too.
