Okay, so my favourite thread in a long time has vanished and it's left me with feelings of confusion and a yearning to know.........

Do chips belong anywhere in a Chinese takeaway?!

I think they do and would argue that they don't just belong - they MAKE a Chinese takeaway. Excuse me! Chips and curry sauce, how can these not be a part of your meal?! Duh!

YABU - Chips don't belong anywhere near my Chinese - What are you crazy?!

YANBU - OMG make mine a double portion and no going easy on that curry sauce!

I think it's about personal preference, so I don't think I can vote either way. Personally, I don't have chips with Chinese (I like lots of egg fried rice instead), but DS does like them sometimes.

Chips with sweet and sour sauce is nectar from the gods

I won’t hear a word being spoken otherwise

Salt n pepper chips not worth the extra cost and smaller portion

Of course! Chips and curry sauce is a valid Chinese in its own right !

I’d have the chips and curry sauce can stuff your Chinese!

I love spicy chilli chips dipped in satay sauce. I don't have them every time but they are gorgeous.

Salt and pepper chips and sweet and sour sauce is where the party is.

Although I only admit this to my husband and never order it ‘in company’ 😂

My local do an individual banquet of half a portion of rice, half a portion of chicken chow mein, 3 chicken balls and a portion of chips and a tub of sauce for £8. The chips are worth the £8 alone, triple cooked and amazing! YADNBU. but I don't like curry sauce

You’re doing sex wrong.

Chips belong no where near a Chinese. Ever. Sacrilege.

Salt and pepper chips 100%

Yes to chips! Not chippy chips though, they don’t belong on a Chinese.

I’ve never understood it. DH loves it. Whenever I go out he gets a Chinese with chips, like it’s a dirty secret grin

I'm in Yorkshire, and chips with curry sauce is a chip shop staple, not a Chinese takeaway.

The best chips with curry sauce is from the Indian takeaway in the nearest town.

I love Chinese food, but I prefer rice or noodles with my Chinese, not chips.

YABU. Chips with curry sauce - which are fab - come from the chippie, not the Chinese takeaway. smile

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 19-Nov-20 19:30:12

Our Chinese takeaway do munchy boxes, yum.

Salt and pepper chips 100%

Indeed - they make a Chinese

ItsAlwaysSunnyOnMN Thu 19-Nov-20 19:30:46

They make a Chinese take away grin

Chinese takeaway chips are delicious (unless like McDonald’s friend just wrong)

It’s what I always order if we have Chinese (rarely) beef in black bean sauce with extra chilli and chips

noneedforthat Thu 19-Nov-20 19:30:48

Chinese chips (not salt and pepper), crispy shredded chicken, fried rice, won ton and sweet and sour sauce ... I don’t order Chinese often !!

ItsAlwaysSunnyOnMN Thu 19-Nov-20 19:31:08

McDonald’s fries

Not friend blush
