South Buffalo's English Pork Pie Co. adding authentic fish and chips joint

By Andrew Z. Galarneau

As the wind howls outside, there's this to look forward to in February: real British fish and chips, in South Buffalo.

In their ongoing efforts to cater to British cravings, Vicky and Damian Parker have announced plans to add an authentic "chippy" to the side of English Pork Pie Co., their South Buffalo pie factory (1176 South Park Ave., 823-3772).

According to its Facebook page:

Craving Fish and Chips, Pie and Chips or Cornish Pasty and Chips? 
Over the past month we have been working hard to meet those desires!
We have just imported a genuine Fish and Chip Shop all the way from Birmingham, UK. Where we aim to have a take out "Chippy" onsite ready to satisfy those cravings within the next couple of weeks. 

The Parkers have long offered warm, ready-to-eat pies and sausage rolls. This represents the first step towards restaurant offerings. It's not just fish, fries and pies, either. "Of course, A chippy wouldn't be a chippy without the Mushy Peas and Curry Sauce! We will also be carrying all the traditional fizzy drinks!" 

I'm not sure how many hardcore Anglophiles will show up. At least down by the Old First Ward, the Parkers know they'll find people who appreciate a crispy hunk of fried fish.
