real chips-not frozen

We love greek food,also real home-made chips,not frozen.We do enjoy rice & potatoes too.

We prefer to experience good home-cooking

Any restaurants we should avoid because of frozen chips,frozen veg,microwaves?

The restaurants look really good,but don't want to make the wrong choices.

Thanks for any info.

To be honest, I think most of them use frozen chips these days. I recon you're going to have a job to avoid it.

Why eat chips when you can eat oven potatoes cooked Greek style?

Thanks for the replies.I did say that we like rice & potatoes as well.We don't eat chips all the time at home.

You do need to eat something with your main meal,not just salad all the time.

Frozen chips are a pet-hate when we are dining out...or dining in.

I'm sure we'll find good greek home-made ones somewhere,we usually do in other places,and they're usually delicious.

We went to Crete, near Rethymnon, 2 years ago for 2 weeks, with teenagers. We were served frozen chips once, every other time they were fresh. I guess they must have an industry there supplying pre cut fresh chips. I'd forgotten the pleasure of real chips in Greece, wonderful.

I agree, there are sometimes when only a proper chip will do. Sydney's do hand cut chips, more like sliced potatoes really, but very good. Stamatia always have home made chips. Aussie BBQ have frozen if memory serves.

I can see where you're coming from, but I know where most of the chips are coming from too. Sadly it's a sign of the times. Fortunately I don't often have chips in Tingaki, but when I have done they've always been the frozen type, sadly.
