City cen­tre chip­per on top 20 list

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

A DUNDEE chip­per is in the run­ning to be­come the best in the UK.

Tailend, on Nether­gate, has been named as one of the top 20 sit-in fish and chip restau­rants i n the coun­try, as part of the 30th an­niver­sary Na­tional Fish and Chip Awards.

Sit­u­ated in the for­mer Deep Sea res­tau­rant, the Tailend opened its base­ment res­tau­rant ear­lier this year. There’s also the op­tion to take­away too.

The city cen­tre eatery will now ‘bat­ter’ it out for a place in the fi­nal against fel­low lo­cal con­tenders, in­clud­ing the St An­drews Tailend and Food in the Park at Blair Atholl.

To reach this stage of the com­pe­ti­tion, the restau­rants were as­sessed in a va­ri­ety of judg­ing cri­te­ria, in­clud­ing menu de­vel­op­ment and in­no­va­tion, re­spon­si­ble sourc­ing poli­cies, staff train­ing and de­vel­op­ment pro­cesses, and mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tional ac­tiv­ity.

Over the com­ing weeks, judges will make unan­nounced vis­its to the fi­nal­ists and un­der­take mys­tery din­ing as­sess­ments, scor­ing both the fish and chips on of­fer and the lev­els of cus­tomer ser­vice pro­vided by staff.

This next stage of com­pe­ti­tion judg­ing will whit­tle down the short­list and es­tab­lish the top five fish and chip restau­rants that will com­pete for the over­all na­tional ti­tle to be pre­sented at the 30th an­niver­sary awards cer­e­mony.

The Fish and Chip Res­tau­rant of the Year Award will be an­nounced on Jan­uary 25.
