Scottish fish & chips the best – it’s official!

Many people would go a long way to get a good portion of fish & chips. Now it seems that they may have to, following the third consecutive victory of a Scottish “chippy” (fish & chip shop) in the National Fish & Chip Shop of the Year competition. An added reason for celebration is that 2010 is also the 150th anniversary of the great British standard dish.

The winner was Giovanni Fionda of The Atlantic Fast Food chippy in Coatbridge, Glasgow. Although it was the first time he had entered the competition, his parents (seen here in the photo) have a long experience of running fish & chip shops. Second place went to Finnegan’s Fish Bar in Porthcawl, South Wales, with Midlands regional winner, The Great British Eatery in Birmingham coming in third place.

Entrants were judged not only on the quality of their product and restaurant, but also on other areas of business such as responsible sourcing, customer satisfaction or community spirit.

More information on the competition can be found at the organiser’s website – seafish.org


Strange Random Fish Quote:

If I were to play somebody who ran a fish and chip shop, I would not work in a fish and chip shop for three months. Staring at chips is not going to help me in my performance – Ben Kingsley
