Hotchips and Dips

I love crisps (or chips depending on which side of the Atlantic you identify with), you love crisps, everybody loves crisps. Beautiful pieces of potato based kit covered in tasty flavourings, created to elevate that most evil of beasts, the hunger pang.

But don’t you sometimes long for more than salt & vinegar treats?

What about Shetland Black spud chips served with Lemon Tart & Raspberries Pudding Dip, or Highland Burgundy Heritage Potatoes paired with a Baba Ghanoush (a smoky aubergine dip with lemon & garlic) Savoury dip, sound good, then get your backside over to HipChips in Soho.

 

Available to the adventurous are a number of seasonal heritage potatoes with a selection of savoury & sweet dips, to be paired you see fit.

HipChips Menu

So go forth crisp lover and experience everything thy potato has to offer.
