This American came to Ireland and was really not impressed with our chippers

“I do not know what the fuss is about when it comes to Fish and Chips.”

FISH AND CHIPS hold a unique place in the hearts of Ireland’s takeaway public.

But one American tourist doesn’t see it that way.

Spotted yesterday by Irish Twitter user @himynameisaine, the Yelp review for one famous Belfast chipper by a US visitor is absolutely gas

Not only was the tourist from New York not happy with the place itself, they even questioned the very concept of fish and chips:

Let me just put it this way, I do not know what the fuss is about when it comes to Fish and Chips. Everything was bland in flavor, even the chips


The highly-rated Long’s of Belfast was put in its place:

I am not sure if the Fish and Chips are supposed to be so bland in flavor or it was just my expectations that were off, but it had no flavor and it was way too greasy to be enjoyed.

Tourists trying chippers is quite a cultural experience:

they barely spoke and seemed more annoyed with us rather than having a smile on their faces they looked angry and their replies were very short and not really what I expected.

Perhaps chippers are an acquired taste – and it takes years to fully comprehend their unique charms ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
