In Scotland, deep-fat fried Mars bars are almost as familiar as french fries and battered fish.
But today, every item on the menu for the day at the restaurant Fry Hard is fried. They fry roast, yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, pickles, parsnips, carrots, turnips, all sorts of greens. They even apparently experimented deep-fat frying gravy, but that didn’t work. The menu does include all the old favourites, however – battered deep-fat fried Mars bars, Snickers and Creme Eggs.
Which, as the Guardian newspaper put it, might be “a case of batter the devil you know.”
