City centre chipper on top 20 list
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.
