Fish and Chips is a fried fish and potato chips served together, originally inside a piece of paper as a take away dish.
Fish and chips were invented on the shores of Britain in the mid-1800s mainly as food sold to fishermen and workers on the pier. Later, in 1900, the Fish and Chips became a symbol of British cuisine and tens of thousands of restaurants in the UK have already sold it.
In the 19th century, fishing in the North Sea was a major and important part of the developing world. Masses of people worked in the sea, fishing and shipping, and needed fast food.
The answer was the fried fish and chips that were the most available foods in the area (fish and potatoes). The Fish and Chips is a dish that characterized the working class who ate it shamelessly.
