A chip shop, or chipper, (shortened from fish’n’chip shop) is a traditional British fast food establishment. The main speciality is deep fried battered fish such as Cod, Haddock and Plaice served with chipped potatoes. Other items such as pies and sausages (also usually battered and deep fried) are usually sold.
Some shops still wrap the food in the previous day’s newspapers.
The best fish’n’chips are sold in the North of England especially in Lancashire and Yorkshire.
