The Traditional Hot Chip Shop originated in Bondi Junction and has since opened up in 'the Spot', Randwick. If you are in the mood for a greasy feast, then you have come to the right place. Prepare to roll out of this hot chip joint with an oily smile and salty fingers.
The menu reads like a heart attack waiting to happen. From creamy cartons of cheesy garlic chips, $7.00 (pictured) to the artery clogging deep fried mars bars, $3.50 (pictured) you are sure to get stuffed for cheap. They do great sides, such as the old English classic mushy peas. It's easy to be tempted by the oily onion rings too, 12 for $6.50 (pictured). But the star of the show has to be the hot chips (pictured). They are only $5.00 for a regular which feeds a family of four with sides. These are not your typical mass-produced potato-like fries. These are real potatoes, hand cut and fried to perfection. Wash all of this down with a refreshing can of cherry coke. There is also vinegar, tomato sauce and salt on the tables so you won't be short on flavour. Those with an unstoppable appetite or a killer hangover can't go wrong with the burgers. The southern fried Chicken Fillet or fillet of fish go for $14.95.
The seating is really comfortable for eating in. Try and secure one of the big booths. The place is quiet during the day but fills up and night, especially on weekends. It can sometimes be a bit of a wait for food though, especially if you order big. It is a great place to bring friends for a cheap feed before a night out. You could go for a drink at Bat Country afterwards or hit up the $6.90 margaritas at Poco's Cantina, both across the road. Otherwise, if the weather is nice why not grab takeaway and walk down to Coogee Beach for a spontaneous picnic? It's about a 20 minute walk downhill.
They've also got locations in Bondi junction and Bondi beach.
