A definitive ranking of things you can get in the chipper

It’s National Fish & Chips Day – indulge yourself.

TODAY IS NATIONAL Fish & Chips Day in Ireland – which is basically an official holiday at this stage.

It means that you can get half price fish and chips in over 200 chippers nationwide.

So, here, a ranking of your chipper standards in descending order of deliciousness:

9. Curry chips

Some people live for a curry chip from the chipper, but with so many high quality curry alternatives out there, the chipper’s version just isn’t a priority. Still, we admit it tastes good.

8. Spice Burger

The unique taste of the Irish chipper spice burger is as alluring as it is mysterious.

7. Batter burger

That special chipper style batter, applied to a standard burger, puts a wonderfully Irish twist on a takeaway standard.

6. Snack Box

Variants include the Dinner Box, the Lunch Box and the standard Snack Box. All of them are straight up chips and southern fried chicken… in a box. So good.

5. Garlic cheese chips

Adding garlic sauce and cheese to the already legendary chipper chips is quite the culinary combination. They don’t skimp on the portions either, so if garlic and cheese is your thing then this should always be your order.

4. The chipper burger

Controversially in ahead of the batter burger, the standard burger just gives you so many options. Cheese, bacon and anything else you can dream up are applied liberally. It usually comes as a chicken burger or a veggie burger as well – keeping your options open.

3. Battered sausage

Ideal for when you don’t want a full meal, but still crave that chipper taste. The battered sausage is a staple of the Irish chipper, beloved by all.

2. Chipper chips

Either by themselves or as a stand alone nibble, the finest chips you ever have are from the chipper. They don’t hold back on the salt and vinegar either.

1. The fish

It can be cod, haddock or even more exotic than those, but the crispy batter is always the same – and it’s always tremendous.
