What screams British aside from rain and Big Ben than fish and chips yeah? My first love affair with authentic, British fish and chips started back in my childhood when my father would take me to visit my granddad in Britain. And every weekend, the two would drag me to the stadium to watch a good 90 minutes of footy. And if in America, hot dog is king, in Britain it’s fish and chips.
I had fond memories of those weekends. Me munching on fish and chips while watching my dad and his dad throw insults at the visiting club. Yeah, they were really passionate football fans.
Anyway, this love for the beautiful game has been passed to me. And anytime my favorite football club has a match, (*Chants: Cause we’re Arsenaaaaal! Arsenal FC! We’re by far the greatest team, the world has ever seen!) you will find me glued to the TV screen of on my laptop. Screaming my lungs off, and enjoying a good serving of fish and chips.
