Tastebuds at the ready – search begins to find the best fish and chips in North East Wales!

Who doesn’t enjoy tucking into a portion of fish and chips? Well January will be perfect chance to get out to a local restaurant and enjoy the classic dish from a host of top chefs from across North East Wales.

For the third year running, the tourism partnership of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham will be holding their annual food challenge, which this year is supporting Visit Wales’s 2018 Year of the Sea marketing theme.

The challenge aims to raise awareness of the great and growing food scene in North East Wales, and helps boost numbers in what is a generally quieter time in the food calendar.

Eateries are encouraged to enter either a ‘Fish and Chips with a twist’ dish, or a locally sourced Surf & Turf dish (with the meat being locally sourced).

This year’s event follows on from the success of the popular Wrexham Burger Challenge, Erddig Apple Challenge and last year’s Pie Challenge.

Although Wrexham may be landlocked, we’re sure eateries across the area will have no ‘fishue’ with the challenge and won’t let ‘any fin’ stand in their way of creating a fantastic, fish and chips dish!

The Sea Food Challenge will be running between 15th January and 11th February 2018, with the dishes advertised on the restaurant’s specials boards.

Dishes from all three counties will then be judged by a panel of mystery shoppers, and the three highest scoring dishes invited to a cook off at the end of February.

Restaurants who wish to be involved can find out more on the North East Wales Facebook page, or by contacting tourism@wrexham.gov.uk. There will be an launch event on 10th January, after which the final list of entrants will be published.
