Cyprus produces wonderful potatoes so why do so many eating establishments serve imported frozen chips?! Are there any eating places in Paphos who buy potatoes, peel them, cut them and make proper chips? If not, why not?
I wish you'd continued your campaign for real chips. Just about all the tavernas use these tasteles, textureless frozen things.
By the way, there is a small fish and chips place in Limassol where the man serves REAL chips (and the fish is very good too). He's also very friendly.
And, by the way, the tavernas are also too lazy to make real tahini - most serve that ready-made stuff that resembles the paste used to stick wallpaper on. What about a REAL TAHINI campaign!
Stellaluna! Do I get T-shirts printed or what? Posters at every road junction? Possible, not probable! Unless we can get some of the national newspapers on to it!? Real chips dipped in real Tahini! Mmmm - thinking about it. And don't start me on real taramasalata -Just what is this new-age, bright pink, Barbie glue!? BUT real chips is the issue here!!!!! Know anyone who prints T-shirts, cheaply?
I rather think you have missed the point. REAL CHIPS is what was being discussed not frozen ones. You certainly cannot beat real chips, it is pure laziness to buy frozen. Restaurants buy these as it is not always cost effective to produce real chips.
