ChipShop’s Deep Fried Chocolate

Who knew that the Brits had a thing for deep fried desserts? The enterprising Limeys at ChipShop brought the best ideas across the pond to Brooklyn. Treat the little ones (and yourself) to a fried Mars bars, Twix or Snickers. Or, for the truly decadent, give the deep fried Twinkie a try. The fresh fried pineapple and deep fried banana are also popular options. Be sure to check out the ChipShop’s website before dining at their Cobble Hill location. It features fun, PG-rated, Cockney slang that the kids will love using when it’s time to order or find the loo.
