FISH AND CHIPS DIDN'T START UNTIL 1860

In areas with access to coastal or tidal waters, 'fast food' frequently included local shellfish or seafood, such as oysters or, as in London, eels. Often this seafood was cooked directly on the quay or close by.

The development of trawler fishing in the mid-nineteenth century led to the development of a British favourite, fish and chips, and the first shop in 1860.



BTW, it's no longer hygenic to eat fish and chips in a newspaper wrapper. Newspaper ink runs all the time now. It used to be better ink that wasn't poisonous.
