THE DB CHIPPY
Established in 2015 by the Barnetts, a DB-based family, The Chippy is a traditional British fish and chip shop with a long family history. Now open right on the waterfront in DB Plaza, The Chippy serves everything from cod and chips to jumbo pork sausages and Pukka pies (which are the best-selling pies in England).
The Barnetts are passionate about serving the finest fish and chips in Hong Kong and, for this reason, just about everything on the menu is directly sourced from the UK. A friend of the family runs six fish and chip shops in Derby and is one of the biggest wholesalers in England, so they import directly from him. He makes his own mushy peas, curry sauce, onion gravy and even his own batter mix. So, the only item the Barnetts buy locally is the tomato ketchup, which is Heinz ketchup.
There’s a stigma that chip shop food is unhealthy because most of the food is fried, but at The Chippy, it’s fried in a very healthy way using 100% UK-sourced solid vegetable fat. What’s more, the Barnetts’ signature cod, which they are renowned for serving in Hong Kong, comes from the sustainable waters of Iceland, one of the purest waters in the world.
The vibe the Barnetts have set out to create at The Chippy is traditional British fish and chip shop meets traditional British pub, and it goes without saying there’s a good selection of beer, cider, wine and even cocktails on offer, as well as best of British soft drinks like Vimto and Lilt. The Chippy is a place where you can eat, drink and have a good time. And, yes, you’re welcome to drop by to pick up a takeaway.
