'Britain's Best Chippy' Becomes First To Send A Portion Into Space

'Britain's Best Chippy' Becomes First To Send A Portion Into Space

You may claim that your local chippy is 'out of this world', but one fish and chip shop can now boast this title literally.

Papas Fish and Chips has become the first restaurant in the world to send a portion of the national dish into space.

The same eatery, based in Hull, East Yorkshire, recently handed out 10,000 portions of fish and chips for just 1p after it won the final of BBC2's Best of British Takeaways.

The dish was sent into space from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, and travelled four times higher than any commercial aeroplane has gone before.

The firm strapped their haddock and chips into a box and tied it to a weather balloon.

Dino Papas, who owns the chain with his dad, Sid, said that the north-south divide meant they had to keep their project a secret.

"We've tried to play it down a bit, as we heard rumours some people down south were going to do it first," he said.

"We want it to be clear that Hull is the home of fish and chips. With City of Culture, and winning the best fish and chips, we really wanted to do something a bit extra."

"It's not easy to just send anything into space and took a lot of planning and hard work.

"We did think about sending some mushy peas with it but thought there might be an issue sending anything slightly liquid."

If you can't survive a chippy without liquid substance (we're talking gravy, mushy peas and curry sauce) then maybe have a go at Casey's Fish And Chips challenge.

It involves eating a 32oz haddock, 15oz of chips and a bap - but it does come with four sides.

The £11.99 test has only ever been completed by seven people, despite an average of 10 per week attempting it. If you do manage it, you'll be the proud owner of this t-shirt.

Oh, and there's plans to double the size of the fish. Good luck.
