Default Fish and Chips

Well firstly I should say Hello, as I've just joined these forums, and thank you, as I read something here last week, which lead us to visit a Fish and Chip shop we didnt know about.

I've been living in the US for about 5 months now, to come and live with my Wife. I do miss good old Britain sometimes.

Well, the place I read about here, was London Fish and Chips in Cary, NC. It was fantastic food, just like at home, I drank tea, read some British newspapers, and even bought a couple of Curly Wurly chocolate bars to bring home.

It was well worth the 3 hours drive there and back, and good to hear some British accents I havent heard in a few months.

In Britain I could drive from London to Edinburgh (and even further) in that time.

Thanks for the tip! We are only about 30 minutes from Cary, so that sounds very tempting indeed.

I know what you mean!! I always put on weight when I go home. Like a kid in a tuck shop I am.
I just ate a bag of Walkers Prawn Cocktail crisps - the real deal. My stash is dwindling though.
