Best chip shop in Hamilton is the really grotty looking place (New Star?) on corner of Peachgrove and Clyde. Their onion rings are actually just a whole slice of onion battered and fried. more of an onion patty I guess, but holy fuck: so good. Lots of decent specialty vegan friendly hong kong dishes too.


Big 2 Takeaways by the new world in hillcrest is alright as well. Except they don't do onion rings. But it is closer. And the chips are amazing.

Fuck what a hippy.

The chippy at Brookfield is good as these days, bobbies by the wharf used to be good but the staff are fucking crazy, if they are busy and you are the only white cunt, they will not serve you, and do not whatever you do ask for it crumbed.
Last time I went there some cunt threatened me with a filleting knife cos I tried to park my bike against one of the picnic tables.
I probably should have called the cops, he was fuckin psycho.

Never ever ever ever ever go to Devonport Stone Oven Bakery & Cafe / Tiny Triumphs. One of the owners either Glenn or Anthony are the worst humans. I have never seen more pathetic bullying of staff AND customers in my life... It was some Kitchen Nightmares shit! Also the food was fucking hilariously bad...

Actually go for a laugh just try not to spend money. :baton:

Last time I was in Orewa, Kippers was way better than it used to be. Or maybe I've gotten worse.

Suprisingly good fish and chips in Kurow. Makihikihi chips are quality though.

Tried a few places since my last post and Eddie wins thus far. Grey Lynn tastes better than Bilbo's and maybe slightly cheaper. Dunno why they don't paint it up like in the music vid. Looks uninviting as.

Epsom f&c on Manukau Rd is really, really good too. You'll pay quite a bit more if you drop your usual order, but the golden goods are massive so it works out.

Eh, bit central prices maybe. Chips seemed undercooked but could just be that they were soggy by the time I walked home, bumped into a workmate etc. :baton:

The Brookfield chip shop is probably the best in Tauranga now, even surpassing bobbies fresh fish market, its not magical, just honest and good, with good specials, whilst bobbies has declined.

Fish burger and chips for $5 or two fishbugers, two hotdogs and chips for a tenner is tre value

Local chippie here it's $12 for a massive piece of fish and a decent amount of chips.

I've been back in Dunedin ten months, haven't found a chippie over average, with most well below average. May have to venture further afield than South D.
Any recommendations appreciated.
