TLDR – Ireland is obsessed with Chips. They even have the concept of a Chip Sandwich. Which might be the most Irish food I’ve heard of since moving here.
Overheard at Lunch at work today
Tony asked me – “were trying to be Irish getting the chips with your veg?”
Me – “It’s Ireland you can get chips everything with everything here”
Tony – “Well maybe not with potato wedges, but you can have them on a sandwich. I love a good chip sandwich“

Trying the Chip Sandwich
After I made it home from work and Michelle and Maddex finished playing Mario on the switch we took the kids for a walk to the alligator park up the street. We spent some time playing then headed home. On the walk home, we stopped into Romayos where we ordered some Chips and a Chip sandwich for dinner. Michelle and I tried it first, then we talked Mila into trying a bite. Mila preferring white food seemed like the logical kid who would like it – We know our princess Mila because she liked it. // Our opinion Meh, it’s ok not horrible and not amazing.
The Irish Chipper – Tiny History blurb
The Irish Chipper is a restaurant that sells fish, chips, kebabs, burgers, pizza, battered sausage and some other things. Shockingly it’s not Irish, the Chipper is actually an Italian construction from the 1880’s. They even have an association dedicated to the Chippers; the ITICA. In the words of the association “The Irish Traditional Italian Chipper Association(ITICA) was formed to celebrate the unique identity of the traditional Italian chippers in Ireland and to mark the contribution we have made to the community.”
