SSSShhhh – Top Secret Mix on Menu at Fish and Chip Restaurant

Oct 13, 2021 | Local News, Northumberland

High demand for quality fish from one of the country’s top fish and chip restaurants has led to a massive scale up in the way their food is prepared.

The award-winning Harbour View Fish and Chip Restaurant and Takeaway in Seaton Sluice has experienced an upsurge in demand for their food to such an extent that manager Waseem Mir has outsourced the preparation of his top-secret batter mix to specialist suppliers to save time in the cooking process. 

The secret recipe “Harbour View Batter” now comes to the restaurant in bulk lorry loads but despite the ingredients being clearly shown on the packaging, the method of making the batter remains a closely guarded secret known only to a selected few within the business. 

“Even though the batter isn’t produced on the premises, the taste is the same. We have stringent checks in place to ensure that the quality and taste remains consistent,” said Waseem. “It is a closely guarded family recipe with additional secret methods to get the batter tasting right with the correct texture and visual appeal which we are justly proud of,” said Waseem.

The fish and chip restaurant and takeaway is renowned for its good food, particularly the size of the fresh Icelandic Cod which customers refer to as “the whale.” 

“The batter is only part of what makes a visit to Harbour View so special, “added Waseem. “If you add to the ingredients, quality fish, good customer service and a friendly family atmosphere it all becomes complete.”
