Since its inception in 2012, Hip Hop Chip Shop has been more than just a place to satisfy one’s cravings.

Their journey began with a mobile van fashioned to resemble a gigantic tape deck, serving delectable dishes at food markets and events throughout the north.

However, it was not only the perfectly executed fish and triple-cooked chips that won over patrons but also the team’s infectious love for hip-hop, which became an integral part of the experience.

Some of the nights they put on show include DJ battles, like the upcoming: “DJ Rasp presenting Slice & Dice Scratch Tournament Head 2 head freestyle scratch battles over hip-hop and boom bap instrumentals & Street Fighter 2 Comp.”

Today, the culinary venture has found a permanent home in Ancoats after opening its brick-and-mortar restaurant in 2018, while the iconic van has settled temporarily at the Carlton Club in Whalley Range.

At Hip Hop Chip Shop, the menu extends beyond traditional fish and chips, boasting an impressive range of options to tantalize every palate.

Tony’s Chippy in Miles Platting has also claimed its rightful place on the top ten list, securing the seventh position.
