King Street, already the epicentre of vegetarian and vegan
eating in Sydney, is now home to Australia’s first vegan fish and chip shop.
At first glance the menu at Bliss and Chips looks just like what you’d expect to find at most neighbourhood chippies. There’s battered fish, prawns, calamari, and everyone’s so-wrong-it’s-right favourite: crabsticks. The catch here is that all of the ingredients are plant based. So, instead of a medley of unknown seafood in your crabstick, you’ll get a soy-based product instead, battered in a gluten free, non-GMO coating. Same goes for the rest of the 'seafood'.
Owner Liss Harry wanted to create a menu that is not only cruelty free but also replicates the look and feel of a regular fish and chip shop. She spent three years researching products to ensure that the food is not only ethical, but tasty too. And it's paid off, with the Veronica sisters giving these guys some big props
on social media when they were in town recently.
Bliss and Chips has the vegan fish and chip market cornered, and the venue is one more string in Newtown’s ethical eating bow.
