If you’ve ever taken the Star Ferry, you’ve undoubtedly walked past White Beard’s original chippie stand. The shop continues to deliver delicious deep-fried fare with a friendly, authentic atmosphere in their second location to keep you coming back.
From Danish to Australian, and to local brews, you’ll be spoilt for choice. To pair with our rich meal, we start with a refreshingly tart bottle of To Øl’s Santa Gose ($70) before moving on to Kona’s Longboard Lager ($60), finishing off with a crisp apple cider from Zeffer ($65).
While their signature fish and chips ($75) is always a hit, we decided to be adventurous and try their golden garlic alternative ($88), a slightly spicier and more seasoned version of the original. The difference in taste proved to be quite minimal, though we did enjoy choosing our dips out of six options, favouring the garlic aioli significantly. For something a little less fishy, we were recommended a serving of beer-battered oysters ($78), which topped off our meal nicely.
If there’s one thing better than a chippie with good beers, it’s one staffed with a friendly, efficient team. White Beard offers a pleasant hangout spot that incorporates the best of a good atmosphere and belly-filling grub.
