we never had fish/chips from a shop          mum cooked her own in corn oil

Every body loves a good pastie supper. For me the best were from "The Glen" at the top of the Oldpark Road aka "Greasy Fred's". Don't know why it got that name because his stuff was great. Need to be careful what I say here though, cos I know that Fred's daughter Robina posts on here.

Absolutely right! A pastie supper from "The Glen" or "Freddie's" (I never heard it called "Greasy Fred's") was the second best thing ever. The first? A fish supper from Freddie's!

During the early 70's I never it as anything other than "Greasy Fred's". Maybe it was just the crowd that I was with. Anyway, call it what you like. Pasties were still brilliant. ;)

I frequented it from 58 to 67 so maybe it just got a new nickname.

This is what a pastie looks like. The taste, however, is beyond description!

Bertie`s in Holywood did some fantastic, fish, chips and pasties. Sadly, no longer there.  :(

I've a notion in my head that part of the reason for the particular flavour is that many pasties contain minced up leftover chips...

Now that's what always thought. That the potato in the pasty was left over chips.

You're notion is right. I used to know a guy who worked in a butcher's shop next door to a chippy.  He told me that the butcher made the pasties for the chippy owner from the left over chips.

Never knew that , I was told it was mashed spuds which I suppose strictly speaking mashed up chips are . I could go a good pastie now  :)
