    Yes we have ALL the kinds of 'fries'. 'chips' usually refers to what I think you mean by home fries and cottage fries. We have 'curly fries' and the kind from Burger King and McDonalds are 'fries', but the word is only used for the thinner kind. 'Chips' is an all-encompassing term for all these things - fries are a type of chip. I suppose potato wedges are the only kind that wouldn't be called 'chips'.

    And what exactly ARE tater tots? I never got that.

    What you call chips, we call 'crisps'.

    Tater tots are shreaded potatoes that are formed into a little roll type shape and fried. I found a photo of them

    I think they must be like our hash browns too. I'm not too keen on them. Give me a good old fashioned chip anyday!

    Wouldn't they be too hot to eat with your hands?

    I love hash browns. Fantastic with baked beans. Mmm...grease...

    Now I'm hungry That sounds pretty good Meggy. I'm thinking swiss cheese and mushroom omelette.
    The tater tots are the same as eatting chips/fries with your fingers, so not too hot. I think they shred the potato a bit thicker than a hash brown, and they are deep fried instead of pan fried.

    In Australia there are HEAPS of chinese resturants as well as the odd tai etc.
    We don't really have many mexican resturants though I don't think although you can buy tacco shells and anchilada stuff to make yourself ffrom supermarkets.

    We many just go to take-away places for fish and chips though!! Hehe!

    Hmmm. . . .now i'm hungry too!
