New Orleans Classic, UK Style

We were eating at an American-style diner and there was an item on the menu called "chip butty". I couldn't imagine what that was so I asked the waitress. She explained it was chips on a sandwich. I told her we had those back home in New Orleans but we call them french fry po'boys. I told her that we even put gravy on it and she thought that was a little strange. You mean to tell me you are willing to put french fries on bread and eat it but you won't go the extra calorie mile and put gravy?! Geez, New Orleanians have to teach people to how to live a little, everywhere we go.

Have a good weekend!
