The Northerners Guide To Finding Chips and Gravy In London

Coming from Yorkshire you expect to be able to find one of the staples of the Northern diet anywhere in the UK, but since coming down to London I've found that the fantastic delicacy that is Chips N Gravy has not penetrated old London village yet. You can find odd little places that will do it for you, you might have to look hard though, though I've found that by chatting to London trapped Northerners you can usually find one or two dotted about the landscape - this web site is designed to aid you in finding such an establishment.

1. Do not despair - they do exist - it's not all jellied eels and cockles
 
2. You have to ask - they often will do it, just not put it on the menu
 
3. Try your local Chinese take away - there are often more around than chippies anyway
 
4. For some reason it seems to be easier to get Chips and Gravy in North London - probably something to do with the types communities settling here
 
5. Use the list below!!!

Comments: Chinese Takeaway - Gravy not on the menu - they do the gravy in small (50p) and large (1) sizes. They also have a tendancy to put thinly sliced garlic in it unless you tell them not, but generally ok gravy

Comments: Traditional Fish and Chip Shop - Gravy pre-made and stored in the little polystyrene container in the fridge until you want it, they then nuke it in the microwave - tend to get fairish skin on them but the gravy is thick - you tend to get loads of chips so you'll need 2 pots - not my favorite gravy, but good if you mix in some mint sauce
