Best 'Chippy Chip's in Scotland Revealed

Its official, Moores Chip Shop, Dumfries and Galloway has the ‘Best Chippy Chips’ in Scotland, as voted for by the public in the Choice Chip Awards for Chip Week.

The Castle Douglas based shop was frying high after being awarded the prestigious title in a competition to celebrate Chip Week 2012, which starts today (20-26 February), and recognises and rewards the quality chips being served by shops in nine different regions.

Chip fans voted in their thousands in the Choice Chip Awards, with over 400 chip shops across the country involved and 35,000 votes received at and through voting cards placed in shops. Moores Chip Shop topped the league table for fryers in Scotland.

Andrew Moore and his team were over the moon with the award. Andrew said: “It’s unbelievable and I can’t thank our customers enough for voting for us. It really makes me proud to say we’ve got the best chippy chips in Scotland!”

Kate Cox, Chip Week campaign manager for Potato Council, said: “Chip Week is a celebration of the Nation’s love of chips and as we suspected people are very passionate about their chips, hence why the Choice Chip Awards have been so incredibly popular, with over 35,000 eager chip lovers voting to put their favourite chip shop on the map.

“This has been a great start to Chip Week 2012, which will see celebrations taking place in shops, pubs, restaurants and retailers across the country. I’m sure that their customers will continue to support them during Chip Week”.
