The crisp or fry has long been part of the British pastime and recent years has seen a revive in the love of the crisp. HIPCHIPS, London’s first crisp and dip concept store which opened last autumn in the heart of London’s Soho offer true crisp or dip lovers good old hand-cut crisps.
Don’t be confused by the name, HIPCHIPS, doesn’t sell ‘chips’ but instead serve up fair trade and organic produce made from three different types of potatoes. Highland Burgundy 1936 “Deep red flesh, firm to the bite potato with a deep crunch”, Salad Blue 1900 and the Shetland Black 1923, an earthy potato with a floury texture.
This autumn HIPCHIPS launch their new season of flavours, still offering the sweet and savoury, from flavours like toffee apple, chocolate peanut butter pie to a cider caramel whip and a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough dip. (that’s is a tongue twister)
If you’re anything like us you’ll stick to a savoury dip but you’ll not be disappointed either way. Some of our favourites were katsu curry, jalapeno, lime and coriander, veggie ceviche and their utterly delightful sweet potato hummus.
Currently, HIPCHIPS offer a collect and takeout option, we are looking forward to home movies and HIPCHIPS by our side. A small box is set at £4.50 + 2 dips, a medium box with three dips is £6.75, or you can go hard for £11.50 for a large box and 6 dips.
HIPCHIPS is located at 49 Old Compton Street, London, W1D 6HL, 020 7287 3114
Friday- Saturday 12pm-midnight
