What’s better than a succulent roast turkey, surrounded by stuffing, sausages and sprouts? Obviously, if everything on the table has been dipped in batter before being dunked into a vat of boiling oil.
In an update to Christmas dinner that we never knew we needed until it was front-crawling through grease in front of us, a Mancunian chippy has taken all our festive favourites to the next level. With a new menu that proves tradition isn’t everything, The Chippy on Burton Road might be the ultimate place to overindulge on and around December 25th.
Check out our recipe for the ultimate Twisted Christmas Dinner:
The restaurant, which has a habit of producing outrageous seasonal specials, announced its new menu line-up on Instagram, providing prospective customers with a brief rundown of what they will be able to sample. According to a caption on the account, fans can enjoy:
“Deep Fried Brie & Cranberry Parcels; Pig in a Duvet; Battered Stuffing Balls; Turkey & Stuffing Patty; Deep Fried Sprouts; Deep Fried Christmas Pudding; and Homemade Mulled Cider.”
In addition to the menu overview, The Chippy has also decided to take a deep dive into what’s on offer, providing anyone interested with lengthy, loving descriptions of the delicious, cardio-threatening options. Of the unorthodox “Pig in a Duvet”, for instance, the restaurant writes:
“Specially made just for us by @axonsof, our signature Smoked Sausage is lovingly wrapped in two rashes of Bacon, then tucked up in batter and deep fried. A substantial festive treat, served with Cranberry Sauce.”
Though its take on a Christmas dinner has certainly stolen the headlines, this isn’t the first time that The Chippy has dabbled in something a little bit different. For instance, just prior to the Christmas announcement, the restaurant had been serving a series of “Autumn Specials”, including “Mushy Pea Fritters” and “Deep Fried Gherkin”. It might be more unorthodox than battered cod and chips, but it certainly makes a statement.
