A Manchester-based chip shop has just released its own festive take on the traditional chippy tea. This deep-fried version of the classic Christmas dinner is certainly one of the more out-there interpretations of Yuletide grub.
The Chippy, located on Burton Rd in the trendy Mancunian suburb of Didsbury, is already well-known in the area for its famous black pudding fritters and homemade fish cakes. But this winter they're upping their game with a full three-course meal chock full of deep-fried festive treats.
From Tuesday 10 December until Sunday 5 January 2020, punters can treat themselves to a Northern spin on classic Christmas favourites, including 'Turkey and Stuffing Fritters', 'Brie & Cranberry Parcels' and a giant 'Pig in a Duvet' (a deep-fried pig in blanket).
Also on offer are battered stuffing balls and deep-fried sprouts, as well as a deep-fried Christmas pudding for the more adventurous diner.
Those with a larger appetite will be tempted by the restaurant's 'Blow Out Christmas Platter', which will include turkey fritters, deep-fried sprouts, pigs in duvets, deep-fried brie and battered stuffing, served with lashings of chips and gravy.
Liz Bookbinder, co-owner of The Chippy, said: "A Chippy Tea is a great treat for every week of the year, but we decided to put a festive twist on it this Christmas, to offer something different to Manchester's diners.
"We had a lot of fun coming up with the recipes and testing them - we're especially pleased with our epic 'Pig in a Duvet' innovation. We think it's a really cheerful take on Christmas dinner and we hope customers enjoy indulging in our deep-fried Christmas Dinner classics."
Liz added: "Of course we'll still be offering up our regular fish, pies and meat-free options throughout December too for those who are sick of Christmas already!"
