Tommy Chow's Chippie

This requested photograph of the famous Gee Cross chip shop Tommy Chow's is dedicated to its best customer Mick Kemp.

I used to be a regular myself when I was working and had a hungry young family to feed. Tommy specialised in fried chicken, but was also known for his pies and puddings, not forgetting fish and chips and peas, black or mushy.

Currently the shop is closed for renovation.

I think I'd better send Jamie Oliver over to Hyde.
Sounds like he's needed urgently.

Since you are so familiar with the menu, you must have been a great customer. And, if you kept returning the food must have been good.

Hmmm, little early for fish 'n chips for me...but the photo is lovely.
Btw, thanks for playing my quiz (and the answer is on the front page!)

It's never too early for chips. If there's one thing I miss its a good Chippie, even a bad one would do!

Wrong time to read this post. Its time for lunch and my ham sandwich just isn't doing it for me. All that fried food sounds better, but I'd better not eat it. Boo hoo

And on a cold winter nite, the window of the tudor-style storefront fould fog up...and just look all British! It was black & white with beautiful varnished wood interior! Ahhhhhhhhhhh...thanks for the memories Gerald! :=)
