New chips pop-up is serving 54 variations of Belgian-style loaded fries

The Fry-By is offering a whole array of loaded fries

Manchester's Finest

Manchester’s latest opening is giving the humble plate of chips an exciting new makeover.

Now, it’s no secret that us Northerners regard the deep-fried potato snack very highly – chips aren’t just a meal, they’re a way of life.

Whether you enjoy your chips thick cut or skinny, drenched in salt and vinegar, with a healthy dollop of ketchup or with lashings of gravy, you’ll struggle to find someone who doesn’t hold an avid appreciation for a piping hot plate of chips.

However, here in Manchester, you can usually only enjoy chips as a side with a larger meal – very few places offer the opportunity to buy a portion of delicious chips to enjoy on their own, with a wide variety of toppings on offer to compliment them.

Manchester’s Finest

Well, our chips-on-the-go woes have finally come to an end.

New opening, The Fry-By, located in Hilton Street’s The Corner Boy, has refined the way we eat our beloved chips – they hand cut their potatoes to a consistent thickness and length before triple cooking to perfect that ‘crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside’ texture.

And then comes the seasoning – there are six different salts on offer; the O.G., Smoky, Citrus, Chilli Citrus, Italian and Greek. 

And as for their toppings? Well, this is when the real party begins.

There are nine different sauces to choose from, all made in-house by Head Chef Cam. 

On the menu, you will find the House Ando (a lemony red pepper mayonnaise), Brown Crab Mayo, Mumbo, BB Sauce, 3 Cheese Sauce, Gravy, Korma Curry and a classic Marinara, which features diced olives, cheese and meat balls – yes, meatballs and chips. 

Each order can come with topped with melted cheese, too.

After a bit of quick maths, that means there are a total of fifty-four different combinations of chips, sauce and salt – what more could you ask for?

The Fry-By will be open and dishing out their loaded fries Thursdays to Sundays between 5pm and 11pm.

Fancy a free chippy tea?

Published

Sarson's UK

Hundreds of chippy teas across Greater Manchester will be reimbursed throughout August as part of a scheme to help small businesses with the cost of living crisis. 

Sarson’s Vinegar has officially launched its #SarsonsFryday campaign, which will see hundreds of dinners be reimbursed for the remaining summer weeks. 

The scheme was launched to extend a helping hands to struggling chippies across both Greater Manchester and the rest of the country amid the ongoing cost of living crisis

To claim their free dinner, all customers will need to do is take a photo of their order and share it onto Twitter or Instagram with the tag @SarsonsUK and hashtag #SarsonsFryday.

To be valid, all entries must ensure they are following the Sarson’s official social media channels to be considered, and must have proof of purchase via a receipt for their meal.

Eastenders actor and chippy tea enthusiast Adam Woodyatt teamed up with the company to make the scheme a reality. He said: “#SarsonsFryday is a fantastic way to reward the loyal customers who keep our fish and chip shops open for business.

“It’s fair to say I know a thing or two about running a fish bar, and I encourage everyone to head to their nearest chippy and get their order in pronto, you never know it might be free!”

Bryan Carroll, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Sarson’s, added: “The rising cost of living means we’re naturally all looking for ways to cut down our expenses, and sadly, one of the first thing that consumers cut back on is meals out and takeaways, leaving many of our favourite chippies at risk.

“As we enjoy the warmer weather, we wanted to help the nation support their local so we’re making everyone’s favourite day of the week even better with #SarsonsFryday.

“Whether it’s a staycation with friends, seaside visit with the whole family or a quiet Friday night in, we want to make sure Brits can get their fish and chip fix – so this summer, it’s on us!”
