When comparing fast food favourites, fish and chips proves to be one of the healthier choices, with the Fish City small Fish & Chip portion meal tested by Beechwood Laboratories to be 579 calories. A portion of cod or haddock provides essential vitamins C, B6 and B12, omega-3 fatty acid, some iron, zinc and calcium, as well as iodine.
We offer customers the choice of three different portion sizes of our award-winning Fish & Chips.
We have been working closely with the Food Standards Agency to monitor the calories and nutritional content of our food. We are the first independent business to be awarded with the 'Caloriewise' certification by the Food Standards Agency. Calorie information is recorded for all items on our menu.
We offer an extensive range of seafood dishes to encourage people to eat more fish, accompanied with local, seasonal ingredients and home-made sauces.
Our potatoes come from only the highest quality growers using potatoes that deliver the best taste and flavour for our chips. We currently use the Maris Piper potato, which were first developed here in Northern Ireland. We peel and chip our potatoes every day, checking for starch and sugar content, ensuring the highest standard of chips. Our chips are cut to a healthy 14 x 17 millimeters, the size of which has been scientifically proven to absorb less fat.
Our endeavour to deliver healthy food led to Fish City winning the UK's Healthy Eating 'Fish and Chips' award in the 2018 National Fish and Chip awards, the 2019 National UK Catey Award for Health & Nutrition, and the 2020 Menu Innovation and Development Award by Seafish.
We use seasonal vegetables, and all our sauces are freshly made. We work with local suppliers to source innovative and healthy ingredients including products from Abernethy Butter, Rooney Fish, Keenan Seafood, Islander Kelp, Ewings Seafoods, Glastry Farm Ice Cream, and Clearer Water— Ireland's first ethical water supplier.
Fully licensed, we have an extensive wine list accompanied with a great selection of local craft beers and ciders, including Kilmegan Cider, Mourne Mountains Brewery, and Troughton’s Premium Tonics and Mixers.
Research shows that eating two or more portions of fish a week lowers the risk of heart attack, heart disease, cholesterol, stroke, depression, diabetes and Alzheimer's. It also increases levels of omega-3 in the body, which supports healthy skin, hair, nails and improves sleep, boosts mood and maintains brain function.
