A new fish and chip shop is set to open in Bristol. There will just be one little difference – there will be no fish.
Plans to open Bristol’s first completely vegan fish and chip shop are in full swing, much to the excitement of the city’s vegan community. If all goes well, the take away will be up and running in Fishponds by the end of January, with menu tasting already well underway.
Of course, there won’t actually be any fish on the menu, but you can expect battered sosmix, pea fritters and tofish, along with Chinese chip shop style bean curd dishes. There will also be battered ‘sausage’, curry sauce, gravy and ‘burgers’ in a bun.
All chips and oil used at the shop will be 100% organic, and the batter used will be gluten free. The premises in Fishponds Road, which currently operates as a Chinese takeaway, will be deep cleaned to ensure no animal fat remains.
The vegan fish and chip shop will be hosting a special pop-up event at Matter Wholefoods on February 5, where a selection of food will be on offer for people to try.
An exact opening date is yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to be before the end of January.
