Hipchips to close Soho site

Related tags: Crisps, Casual dining

Crisp and dips restaurant Hipchips will soon close its Soho site to focus on its growing retail business.

Following a deal with Sainsburys earlier this year that saw retail boxes containing chips and a selection of dips hit the shelves, Hipchips is swapping its Old Compton Street store for a pop-up business designed to promote its products across the country.

Its last day will be Saturday 28 September.

Billed as the first ever restaurant to focus on crisps and dips, Hipchips launched in 2016.

Head chef Scott Davis uses five heritage and vintage potato varieties to make the crisps and has created a menu of dips influenced by classic British pairings and international flavours to accompany them. Dips include katsu curry, baba ganoush and pickled onion cheese fondue.

All served with crisps dusted with cinnamon sugar instead of salt, Hipchip’s quirky dessert options including rhubarb and custard and salted caramel dip,

Hipchips retail range currently consists of Hipchips Savoury Selection (Salted Heritage Potato Crisps, Moroccan Style Yoghurt, Katsu Curry and Beetroot, Ginger & Chilli); and Hipchips Sweet Selection (Heritage Potato Crisps with Cinnamon Sugar Seasoning, Chocolate, Salted Caramel and passion fruit).
