Customers asked to cast their vote for Easter chips

Olley’s Fish Experience in Herne Hill is marking Easter by changing the shape of its chips and it’s asking its customers to decide on the final version.

With three Easter-themed varieties to choose from - lambs, rabbits and chicks - whichever one tops the online poll will be available from the Norwood Road chippy from Good Friday to Easter Monday in the takeaway and restaurant.

Owner Harry Niazi comments: “Chips are one half of the nation’s favourite dish and the secret to what makes them crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside takes years of practice and experience to get right. So it’s not often we change what we do, but this year we thought we would have some fun and get our customers involved too. Each customer will receive one of our special Easter chips in with their regular order over the Easter weekend.”

Olley’s Fish Experience chips and peels around 1.2 tonnes of British-grown potatoes a year. Harry pays close attention to the variety of potatoes he uses and selects only the best A-grade products for his menu. 

He adds: “You need a really floury potato to make the best chips - at the moment we are using agria grown in Lincolnshire -  and we twice fry them in fresh, clean sunflower oil at just the right temperature to get that fluffy interior and crunchy exterior. It really is a science.”

Vote for your favourite Easter chip shape at Olley’s Fish Experience’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages. Voting closes on Wednesday 28th March at 9.30pm and customers will receive one Easter shaped chips in with their regular order.
