Chip or Fries?

I'm talking chip shop style chips or fries from fast food shops. The time has come where YOU have to decide between the two. You can only have one type from now on. You must choose ONE. So regardless of whether you are going to have battered fish or a burger, you can only have chips/fries, dependant on your choice here. So (hypothetically speaking [if I must say that ]) which would it be

Chips and Fries piccies included below to help make your choice

EDIT: With regard to Phil155's post, home made chips and fries are included in the options above. I was trying exclude pre-packed fries or chips as, imho, they aren't as nice... but also some of those varieties are borderline between the two main options

Re: Chip or Fries?

I would always prefer chips...if cooked properly so the're not soggy.

Because of this I'm more likely to get fries..... they must be easier to cook I guess. (So I'm almost on the fence on this one) But I've chosen Chips anyway.

Re: Chip or Fries?

Gotta be chips

Never have liked those dry salty things that we British call fries

However 'Frites' have always been great from those roadside stands in France

Re: Chip or Fries?

Big chunky chip-shop style chips are my favourite - either home made or from a good local chip shop

Two stage cooking usually produces the best results... either twice fried or parboiled/steamed & then fried.

One of my favourite methods is to parboiled or steam, then toss them in coconut or olive oil together with grated garlic & ginger plus a sprinkling of SE Asian curry spice mix, and finish them off in a hot oven..... Erm..bfn, I'm off to the kitchen

Re: Chip or Fries?

chips generally. But fries do go well with a half-pounder take-away dirty-burger. And pizza, fries go better with pizza too.
Best food ever though is a chip butty, with big fat hot chips, and so much butter on the bread that it melts and runs down your arms while you're trying to eat it. Mmmmmmmm.

Re: Chip or Fries?

If you are rrefering to those soggy , greasy ,inedible, thick strips of potato that the English call chips, then just about anything would be better so will have to go for Fries

Chips, and unbelievably the best chips I've ever had are from our local Chineese. Usually chips from a Chineese are soggy mush, but not these ones!
