The Golden Chippy

The best food is sometimes found in the most quiet and obscure neighbourhoods. I googled about this bistro and decided to go in search of this place

From the Greenwich observatory, we hiked up and down the streets of Greenwich town to a quiet neighbourhood for almost 30mins to find The Golden Chippy. The bistro is more of a small take out counter with a modest menu which reminded me of a kebab doner in Europe

There are a few tables just outside the counter under the awning. There are only 3 tables with capacity of 4 per tables. Most patrons are from the neighbourhood buying take outs. The server will bring you the menu and take your order from the table

There was a few types of fish for choice for the fish and chip and we ordered the cod fish. The batter was thin and fried till a fantastic crispy golden brown.

The cod flesh was very juicy and succulent and the fish was quite sweet in natural flavour

We had the shrimp fritters which were large in size and scrumptious to the bite

The onion rings was fried well and not oily

The fried chicken was marinated well and had a slight peppery taste to it. The skin was crispy and thin with very little fat but the chicken was very slightly dry

Lastly, we had the coleslaw which was very refreshing and crunchy with a good mix of cabbage and carrots.

Overall, the food served at this bistro was extremely good and well worth our walk. The servings are huge with each fish and chips served with loads of chips and a side salad. Plentiful of mayonnaise, tartar sauce, vinegar and mustard was provided for the meal and service was cosy and warm. I would definitely visit again.
