Some of the greatest duos in history have also been the most simple, like hydrogen and oxygen, MacLean & MacLean, and ice cream and breakups. Celebrate a classic take on complementary pairs with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fish, chips, and more at Chippy's Fish & Chips, valid at two locations: 490 Bloor St. West and 893 Queen St. West.
Chippy's Fish & Chips is a traditional fish shop with a straightforward menu composed of high-quality fried fish, chips, and sauces. Seafood seekers can choose from haddock ($9.99), cod ($8.49), halibut ($12.99), prawns ($11.99), or scallops ($11.99) to undergo the transformational treatment of the deep fryer. Chippy's batter employs the energies of Guinness beer to achieve a texture crispier and lighter than a corn-puff cumulus cloud, and the high-quality fish is purchased daily from reliable suppliers. Prawns and scallops, meanwhile, fare equally well while cradled in a Panko breading. Sauces range from a tangy tartar sauce, garlic mayo, pepper mayo, mushy peas, and hot curry ($0.80 each). Coleslaw ($0.80), which is made from fresh cabbage and carrots and dressed in a light vinaigrette, tops off this traditional meal with a knock-knock of tang to the tongue buds. Chippy's uses only the best PEI and Ontario taters, cut fresh and blanched each morning before they're cooked to order like corporate financial statements.
Customers rave about Chippy's great taste, and they boast two prime locations to quell whiny hunger pangs. A friendly staff and rock-‘n’-roll atmosphere contribute to the eatery's favourable reputation.
Chippy's Fish & Chips was ranked the Best Fish and Chips in Toronto by blogTO readers in 2008. Yelpers give a 3.5-star average to the Queen St. West location, and OurFaves users give the same location four stars on average:
Chippy's Fish & Chips
Daily delivered seafood, hand-cut Ontario potatoes, and a housemade batter that uses not one, but two bottles of Guinness per batch. That’s the essence of Chippy’s Fish & Chips and the vision of owner John Lee, whose sole mission is to bring his customers the very best of classic pub food. Options such as fried halibut or panko-crusted scallops are written across the chalkboard menu inside the small eatery, where customers line up to place their order at the counter. Lee and his team then get to work, frying the fish ‘n’ chips to order and piling them inside Chinese-takeout-style boxes or sneaking them directly into customers’ pockets. Patrons can also order the Double Dunk sandwich. This unique handheld item stuffs two cuts of golden-fried Acadian sturgeon and a pile of red-cabbage coleslaw between two pieces of deep-fried dough. The stack—along with everything else on the menu—verifies what Lee told Corey Mintz of Toronto.com while discussing plans to franchise: “Chippy's is not a heat-and-serve operation.”
