The nostalgic chip shop-inspired menu, a favourite of the Six by Nico brand will be running from the  opening until Sunday, June 30.

Since its inception in 2017, the Six by Nico team have developed, refined and evolved “The Chippie experience". 

The menu is inspired by the British chip shop, which takes inspiration from chef Nico Simeone’s family fish shop in Glasgow.
