What a treat to find yummy fish and chips in Sai Kung! Big chunks of moist Ling Cod - such a relief from the thin, limp sole that seems to be de rigueur in HK fish and chips for some unfathomable reason. What F&C lover doesn't long for a crisp beer batter? I do! I do! Another drawback of other HK eateries is the fish is usually breaded, not battered. It might be fish, but personally I don't called breaded sole the real thing.
VIcky, the owner, learned her craft honestly working with relatives in a British chippy, so she knows what she's doing. There's quite a tempting selection of items on offer, including (but not limited to) chip butties, a fisherman's basket, sausage butties, calamari, gorgeous plump onion rings, sides of mushy peas and sweet corn and even deep-fried Oreos!
It's a bit disappointing that the chips are not fresh-cut, something I always look for in a real chippy. But, with the ridiculous space limitations in HK, it's hardly surprising that there's no room for a chipper and the attendant supplies, storage and manpower. However, the chips here are pretty darn good nonetheless.
Chip In is basically a take-out place, with a couple of small tables out front. Cold drinks (including beer) and Movenpick coffee (which I think is organic). Friendly service and VERY reasonable prices. Large F&C $52HK (about $7US), soft drinks $6. Get your food and sit on one of the shaded benches in the little park right across the street. Soul-satisfying food for lovers of good F&C.
