    I know I always think it's a waste of chips. I'm a purist I like my chips to be crispy with nothing but salt on them.

      I love my chips soaked in sauce. Every bite must be full of flavour and juiciness. It’s even better with baked beans and melted cheese. Mmmmmm (I’m Asian btw)

      Also I don’t understand how you came up with the conclusion that only white people do it. :?

      Burger sauce or garlic sauce for me

      Generally, though, it's just British culture. I see a lot of black folks in my local chippie and they always request bare ketchup on their chips.

        Soggy chips? I love tomato ketchup. I don't use a 1:1 ratio of sauce and chip though. The only way they could be soggy is if you use too much sauce.

        Tomato ketchup is one of the best condiments and so is sweet chilli, sweet curry, brown sauce, mint and whatever I have missed. (Mayonnaise is nasty, so is mustard, cheese and all the nasty bitter ones.)

        If you use the right amount you might like the taste of the mix.

        I don't cover it, I agree that's messy. Usually put ketchup on the side and dip the chips into it

        Personally I think we need to draw a distinction between fries, which should be accompanied by mayo on the side, and chippy style chips, which should be covered in salt and vinegar, or maybe curry sauce as suggested above.

        black people are much more into fried chicken

        Since I moved away from London to a white area to my dismay I've noticed the place has barely any chicken shops and mainly just fish and chips shops ..and the odd kebab shop

        white people love fish n' chips
        black people love chicken

        There are a lot of chicken shops in my area, is the thing, but the local chippie is rammed with all sorts of folks in the evenings getting their fish and chips.

        If it is mayo, then Belgian heritage. If you have chips in Belgium and ask for ketchup, it gives you away as non-local.
