It’s funny when a super popular and well known restaurant in one city is actually replicating a style from another. Like the Australian-themed Outback Diners in America (which aren’t really popular with foodies, but evidently are making a buttload of money). Such is the case with the Chip Shop – it’s a British-style diner in Park Slope, New York – and it is crazy popular. What’s so good about British food? Chip Shop answers that question by saying: we will deep-fry ANYTHING. This Brooklyn take-out spot is run by an English couple and opened way back in 2001. First they deep-fried a Mars Bar, now it’s everything from Oreos to Mac-n-Cheese, toast and beans, Twinkies, pretzels, pop tarts, pizza, you name it. Basically you can take anything you like into the place and they will deep-fry it for you. Apparently once a customer asked for deep-fried sushi. Kind of defeats the purpose, huh? But you name it, they’ll fry it. Chip Shop is at 383 5th Ave, Park Slope, New York.
