Everyone has their favourite fish and chip shop – the tried and true, where you know the batter will be crispy, the chips will be fluffy on the inside and they put just the right amount of salt and vinegar on your supper.

Or maybe your favourite has something extra-special on the menu – something you can’t get anywhere else and is the only thing that’ll do.

We asked three chippies what makes them so special and what it is that keeps customers coming back again and again.


Dundee’s Fresh and Chips does the classics – and some new favourites too

“At Fresh and Chips we believe in using high quality ingredients and making everything we can in-store.

“People love that our chips are prepared daily along with our own tartare sauce, mushy peas, coleslaws and much more. Our signature golden and crisp battered haddock is a favouriteb but we also have things with a twist such as our spicy fish.

“We cook everything fresh so although there may be a small wait we want to ensure you get the best possible experience when enjoying your food. We are also quite well known for our “specials” which are weird and wacky things but are really fun to eat and tasty! We have battered lasagne, chips and chocolate, spicy battered lorne and much more.”
