There’s a new fish & chip takeaway in town, and it’s popping up at North Hinksey Rugby Club… Introducing North Hinksey Fish Bar!
The team behind NOOD, professional chefs prior to lockdown, have been making a name for themselves locally. Supplying cake to local businesses like The Jericho Cafe and Jericho Coffee Traders, as well as making bespoke celebration cakes, they’ve now moved into hot takeaways.
Popping up every Wednesday, Thursday & Friday from 5.30 – 80.30pm, the takeaway serves traditional favourites of cod, scampi, or battered sausage & chips, plus some extra goodies.
We gave their takeaway a thorough testing!
We have a pretty healthy appetite in our house. Me (obvs) plus one sporty husband and two growing boys who can’t seem to stop running = a fair amount of food consumed. However, even we are beaten sometimes!
On the table: 1 cod & chips, 1 kids cod & chips, 1 kids sausage & chips, 1 chicken pie, 1 chicken burger, mushy peas and tartare sauce! The pie was to reheat the next day but, frankly, the pasty looked too tempting to put off.
Light and fluffy inside with crispy golden batter outside, the cod was just as you’d want. Chips weren’t any of that floppy nonsense, they were another shade of gold, with a decent crunch to them; but think and chunky as you’d expect from a chip shop.
The battered sausage was that perfect juxtaposition of crisp and smooth, but it was the chicken burger we fought over. To be even more specific, the phenomenal buttermilk fried chicken within. The burger, thankfully, was generously filled – flavoursome chicken thigh falling out at any opportunity. Not the easiest of burgers to eat neatly, but torn into as if by piranhas, so neatness wasn’t exactly on the agenda.
Mushy peas and tartare seemed very fresh and homemade, with no sauce packets in sight. The pie was delicious too, amply filled with fresh ingredients and rich with herbs.
