Tidbits from my Travels by Steele
One of my last trips to NYC I had it in my mind I must visit a restaurant in Brooklyn called the ChipShop.
While watching the Travel Channel a few weeks before the trip, the ChipShop popped up. Famous for their British style fish and chips, they also make an interesting dessert. After watching it I knew I had to go there and try one of their deep fried Twinkies!
With so many places to eat in NYC, and I have my favs that I like to hit up when I'm there, I talked my friend into going to Brooklyn and finding the ChipShop. The friendly staff and quick service impressed me. After perusing the menu, we opted for a slice of deep fried pizza. We chased that with a deep fried Twinkie. I have to say, that was the most deep fried food I'd ingested since my last visit to Memphis.
Luckily, I literally walk miles while I'm in NYC, and I find myself walking the New Yorker's pace, not the leisurely pace most of the country enjoys. So, I'm sure I walked those calories right off within the next few hours.
If you're ever in the neighborhood, stop in and have some fish and chips, maybe a deep fried slice of pizza, but definitely try the deep fried Twinkie. I actually think it's better than the Twinkie you buy from the store.
