Fish and Chips: the Better Takeaway ChoiceJanuary 6th, 2017
If you’re anything like us, you’ll look forward to your Friday night takeaway, where you can indulge in a bit of what you fancy at the end of busy week. However, it’s also important to enjoy these weekend treats as part of a balanced diet, so how do you really pick the healthiest choice for you? Well, we’re pretty sure that our fish and chips is one of the best takeaway options out there, and if you’re not quite sure we’re here to prove it to you. So have a read of what we have to say, and let’s dig into our favourite Friday evening treat.
Big vs. skinny
When it comes to chips, the fatter the better. Yep you heard us right, skinny chips won’t actually make you skinny! This is because the skinnier chips absorb more oil and fats, whereas the larger surface area of our fat chips absorb less of the bad stuff, keeping the chips crispy and golden on the outside and extra fluffy on the inside. So next time you get a hankering for some chips, make sure you come and visit us for some fat chips – it’s the healthier option after all!
Get your veggies
Unlike many other takeaways, we offer a wide variety of vegetable options, from tasty salad to mushy peas with your chippy dinner. We also cook up a delicious and hearty range of jacket potatoes, including classic toppings such as baked beans and yummy tuna mayo. Just think, what other type of takeaway can offer the same variety as a chip shop?
Fish for the brain
Fish is full of health benefits, and because of the high temperature of our oil, little fat actually gets to the pieces of fish within the batter. Over the years, fish has proven to be one of the world’s best sources of omega-3 fatty acid (which is great for your brain) and vitamin D (for strong bones) so it’s always important to include it in your daily diet. So if you are thinking of indulging in a takeaway, great-tasting fish really does feel like the best option.
No added nasties
Potatoes, fish, batter and oil; that’s all there is to our fish and chips. Forget about any unwanted preservatives and extra nasties, we produce great-tasting food that’s made from high quality produce you can rely on. From your local Chinese to the nearby fried chicken shop – not many takeaways can say this.
