The Hippy Chippy

1-3 Broadmead, Bristol BS1 3DX (between Mountain Warehouse and Sports Direct)

NEW permanent shop opening 8th December

The Hippy Chippy is a 1972 VW campervan converted to a chip shop and then hand painted by hippies in psychedelic colours. The van always attracts a lot of attention and quickly becomes a memorable location at any festival or event.

We spent a lot of time trialing different potato varieties and finally found one that gave us the results we were looking for. We found that by double blanching the chips at a lower temparature and then finish frying at a higher temparature we were able to create a super crispy chip that was nice and fluffy inside.This triple cooking method is what makes them absolutely delicious. Also we cut the chips chunkier so there’s a bit more to bite in to. We offer a selection of traditional accompaniments along side few interesting ones of our own.  We have a lot of repeat custom!
