    I would say "commonly or frequently eaten". (I don't think it's true by the way).

    I'm guessing you're wondering whether to write 'Fish and chips is...' or 'Fish and chips are...'

    The right answer is is, as long as fish and chips is being considered as a single entity in the sense of a meal or a dish.

    Yes, though for me it's dal and palak paneer.

    Re: Fish and Chips

    Certainly that's more popular than old Bangers and Mash.

    Well, I would certainly take a curry over fish and chips, bangers and mash, steak and kidney pie etc, though maybe that's because I'm vegetarian and there are plenty of delicious veggie Indian/Bangladeshi/Pakistani dishes.
