Chef Daniel Sutton has just opened a new fish and chip eatery this week, with one catch: there’s no fish! After serving up vegan versions of the classic fish and chips at his shop earlier this year as an experiment led to the development of this restaurant. Sutton explains that, “We thought we’d produce something vegan and see how it goes. It went really well, so we introduced a full menu.”
This vegan chip restaurant will be the first of its kind in London amongst the plethora of plant-based options emerging in this trendy city. Sutton wishes to supply the public with an alternative to fish to help accommodate the increasing demand for vegan dishes.
Menu items like fish and chips, prawn cocktail, and shrimp scampi will be available to order at Chippie. The “fish” itself is made up of banana blossom that has been marinated in seaweed and samphire and then deep fried to create that authentic taste of the sea. The vegan prawns are composed of Japanese potato starch that has been battered and served scampi-style.
Cat Thomas, a fundraising manager, says that the vegan fish, “tastes healthier than fish and chips, and is still good fried food that you could eat on a hangover.”
Their truly is a vegan version of everything!
