Which restaurant has the best chips?

Recommended Posts

Thought I would pose the question as I was sitting here thinking about chips. Seaside on Soi Chayapoon is good and cheap proper chips fresh every time, Pats Pies are good also but out of the way unless you've got a motor. All suggestions greatly appreciated and all will be tasted to find the ultimate good old fashioned chip.

How to cook proper chips


Cooked potatoes, golden and crisp sounds easy to do, but can cause so many problems. Getting the right technique is all important in achieving the perfectchip.




Allow 2 medium sized potatoes per person, preferably Maris Piper, washed and peeled Ground nut oil for cooking




Cut the potatoes into slices about 1/2in thick, and 2ins long. And then cut the slices into strips 2 x 1/2 x1/2ins. Wash them well and dry them with a cloth. Place them into the basket, and lower them carefully into the deep fat at 165°C. I find the best way to cook chips is by doing it in two stages so once the potato chip has softened and become "limp", drain it thoroughly trying not to shake the basket and damage the chips. Put them aside on a plate. When required for eating simply place the chips back into a basket. Increase the fat temperature to 180-185°C and lower the chips into the fat carefully. Cook them until they are crisp and golden then drain them well, season with salt and they’re ready to eat.


You can make chips the day before you require them simply by taking them through the first cooking process. Store them covered in the refrigerator, and when ready to eat simply return them to the deep fat fryer to crispen off, colour and reheat. But I do recommend that you remove the chips from the fridge and leave for 30 minutes to help come back to room temperature.


The chip science


The right potatoes Maris Piper or King Edwards are the best to use for chips because they’re both

very starchy. Avoid waxy potatoes, like Desireés, as they contain quite a lot of water. Too much moisture makes chips go soggy, so stick to starchy spuds.


Chunky chips


The size of chip you use is important too. Imagine a large chip, which soaks up some oil through each of its different surfaces. If you cut it in two, it will soak up more oil, as you have increased the surfaces that will be contact with the oil. So bigger chips mean you end up eating less oil.


Cooking them through


The catch with bigger chips though is that you run the risk of not cooking them properly. But you’re safe with this method of cooking the chips twice. The first time you cook them, at the lower temperature of 165°C, you can make sure that whatever the thickness, they are cooked through. At this temperature, you won’t get too much browning on the outside and you are not likely to burn the chip. Whacking them in at a higher temperature afterwards, say 185°C, gets the browning reactions going on the outside of the chip, so that’s when all the tasty, golden crispiness develops.


Low fat chips!


When you come to cook the chip, it may look like the oil is boiling. But actually, the only thing that’s boiling is the water in the chip. And as water in the chip boils away, the escaping steam creates a protective layer around the chips, which stops oil from being absorbed. Just like with the fish, it’s as if the chips are being poached by all the steam. It’s when you take the chips out that the oil on the surface of the chips seeps back in through the tiny pores that the escaping steam left behind. So, if you quickly pat dry your chips with kitchen paper as soon as you take them out of the oil, you reduce the total amount of oil you eat.

Over here on the darkside I havee long been awaiting a proper chip and at last it has arrived. A existing establishment has relocated to the lakeside namely Mulligans. Popped in there two days ago my initial mission was to try the breakfast but ended up having a couple of cold ones and ordered some bread and butter and a plate of chips as I fancied a sarnie. Within 10 minutes along came the bread freshly baked and excellent to be accompanied by a fantastic looking plate of chips. Not only did they look fantastic they were out of this world, absolutely brilliant, faltless and being the fat bastard I am I ordered two more plate fulls. For all BM's over here on the daarkside I strongly urge that you check it out, trying the breakfast today in 20 mins time and will resurect the best breakfast thread if it is up to it.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
