I just got back from NYC and I went to a pretty good BBQ place called "The Hog Pit". They had an appetizer called "Fried Pickle Chips". Basically, they took a New Dill pickle, sliced lengthwise, dipped in (what I guess) a buttermilk based batter, and then deep fried. They were served with a small container of Tartar sauce.
I've done a bit of searching and it seems like this is a southern U.S. creation and I was wondering if anyone knows of a restaurant in the GTA that has Fried Pickle Chips on the menu.
P.S. If you're ever in the U.S. and you see these on the menu, I highly recommend them...very tasty, if a bit odd.
