Now, I’ve personally never really thought about what could possibly make a Christmas dinner better, and that’s because I didn’t think it possible. I mean, it consists of all the good stuff a Northerner adores: gravy, proper roasties, and for some families (including my own), top tier Yorkshire puddings, so what more could we ask for? According to The Chippy on Burton Road, a bit of batter is all you need to take your Christmas dinner to the next level.
Deep-frying pretty much everything that would traditionally land itself on the plate of a Christmas dinner, the West Didsbury chippy has gone all out with the festive grub this season, serving up an array of festive trimmings as we’ve never seen them before.
Introducing a rather lengthy menu of tasty treats for Christmas, guests can try out their deep-fried brie and cranberry parcels; buttermilk turkey goujons; a massive battered pig in a blanket known as a ‘Pig in a Duvet’; deep-fried stuffing balls and battered Brussel sprouts – giving a traditional chippy tea twist on the annual meal. The Chippy on Burton Road has launched Dirty Christmas Fries for this year which consist of twice fried chippy chips, smothered in melted cheese and gravy, topped with cranberry sauce, red onion, bacon and stuffing crumbles.
If that wasn’t exciting enough (or cholesterol-raising enough) for you, the chippy has also introduced a number of fun tasting platters, too, packed with treats such as chips and gravy, deep-fried stuffing balls and so much more. Yep, I feel full at the thought already.
Plus, vegans and veggies need not miss out with meat-free dirty Christmas fries, “Not a Pig” in a Duvet, the Very Veggie Christmas Platter and the Blow Out Vegan Veast that’s big enough to share. And since the fish and chip shop can’t get enough of the batter they have sweet treats too including Apple Pie Fritters and a gooey, chocolatey and deep-fried “After Eight” Stack.
Available for both dine-in and Deliveroo, locals can enjoy the festive menu throughout the festive period on Wednesdays 5pm-9pm, and Thursdays to Sundays, 12pm-9pm.
