I'm not sure what Keith's Foods thinks unnatural potato scallops are.

They dont look very difficult - do them at home. Assume the same principle applies as potato croquettes - use cold mash before you fry

You're right - prolly easier than trying to find a chippie that does them here anyway.

A northern chippie staple but I hadn't noticed until this thread that yes they seem very absent in London.

Most McDonalds do these but put on the airs and graces by calling them 'hash browns'.

If you're ever in the Perigord region they are best served with calf brain.

Hash browns are something different BC. This is a slice of potato in batter.

When I was a kid living in Sydney my brother and I walked to and from school with some older kids. Every Friday afternoon we'd stop at the fish and chips shops and they'd buy a load of scallops (potato) and we'd feast on them walking home.

When we moved to Adelaide we found they are not a thing here. You can buy potato fritters but it's not the same.

Another thing in Sydney was you could buy a "salad sandwich" which had , lettuce, tomato, cucumber, carrot and pickles. They don't do those in Adelaide. You have to specify each filling you want.

As a teenager I used to work in the local take away as a cook, kitchen hand and service person.

I know exactly how to make these.. the trick is you need a large and very, very, very hot deep fryer.

If the oil is not hot or deep enough they just sink to the bottom and get stuck there. They must get hot enough to float within an instant of going in the oil. Otherwise the batter issues are .. not pretty.

I actually had them in Glenelg Girkl, so you can get them in Adelaide! I've also had salad sandwiches there.

Scylla, it sounds like my large saucepan isn't going to cut it. Perhaps I'll have to venture oop north.

I quite like the use of pickles in Australian sandwiches.

Any decent traditional chippie in the north does them (traditional = not Chinese), battered burgers, and battered sausages. The world is your chronic heart disease.
