CHIPPY British Take Away is located at Plaza Singapura, serving a variety of snacks and finger food that originated from the streets from Britain.
A unique and hidden gem in Singapore. Must try. Forget the calories and enjoy the taste. Absolutely finger licking delicious. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food is prepared fresh, super crisp. A lovely break from the shopping in the plaza.
Located at the basement of the shopping centre, there were various food outlets for quick bites. One of them is Chippy which offers british food fare such as the traditional fish and chips, and sausage with mash for takeaway. But its most well known item on its menu would be the Fried Mars Balls. Sounded quite sinfully and naughty, but it was a hit with the old and young. Recently Chippy has gone through a rebranding and reopened with a new look.
Fried Crumbled Calamari and Fries ($8 /combo)
For combo set, it was served with a bottle of lemonade. The lemonade was sour and not too sweet, with a slice of juicy grapefruit on it. The fried crumbled calamari and fries was served in a chinese wire handle take out box, which one usually saw in US dramas, but not common in Singapore. It was quite unique. I had requested no chilli powder on the calamari and fries, yet the serving was covered with the spicy chilli powder when I opened the box. So sad. The batter was light and crispy with chewy calamari inside. The chilli sauce and mayonnaise was served in a separate container, but I did not use it as the food was already quite spicy for me.
Fried Mars Balls with Ice Cream ($4.90)
The pipping hot crispy balls were drizzled with chocolate sauce, served on top of the ice cold vanilla ice cream. If you did not like vanilla ice cream there was also a choice of chocolate ice cream. Encased in a thin crispy batter, the balls were filled with layers of gooey thick caramel and rich melted chocolate. Super sweet and yummy. It was an explosive combination of sweet, hot and cold with the ice cream in the mouth.
Overall the food was not bad. Except for the mistake with the chilli powder on my order, the staffs were quite friendly.
Ive been searching everywhere for fired mars bars, and FINALLY! Chippy sells great fried mars balls. 4 fried mars balls with crispy batter thats not too oily despite being deepfried, served w a HUGE scoop of chocolate icecream, and topped off with Hershey syrup! What sweet sin! And all for 3.50 for a regular serving :D
The service was fine, nothing exceptional. the staff were talking to each other though, making me feel quite neglected and out of place, as if im eavesdropping on their conversation. But for a takeaway outlet (and with such good prices) i dont think thats a huge issue.
