The popular cocktail bar The Alchemist is known for its neverending list of crazy cocktails, which smoke, fire and fizzle. A bar and restaurant love to celebrate the unconventional, dark and controversial through food & drink! Is there newest charcoal battered fish & chips too controversial? We’ll let you decide.
Where its drinks commonly get praised, its food something doesn’t get as much attention, but the restaurant chain serves up a unique menu, which is a mixture of nibbles, shared plates, lighter bites and the main event which celebrates classics with an Alchemist twist.
And, the restaurant’s newest twist is on a British classic. Posting to social media the bar & restaurant wrote: “Our twist on the British classic.
“Black activated charcoal batter fish plus our tartar sauce we couldn’t ask for more!”
The Main Event menu is The Alchemist’s take on foods of the world – giving them an Alchemist twist and they sound absolutely mouthwatering.
The Main Event menu includes The Alchemist’s twist on some classic dishes such as everyone’s favourite Katsu Curry, Nori Crisps, Radish, Jasmine Rice, House-Made Katsu Sauce; 9oz Rib-Eye Steak, Miso Butter, Tempura Prawns, Charred Gem Wedge, Fries. Choose Truffle Gravy, Béarnaise Or Peppercorn Sauce and of course and Alchemy Fish & Chips, Black Activated Charcoal Battered Fish, Mushy Peas, Tartare Sauce, Curry Sauce, Lemon.
The twist on the British seaside classic will set you back £14.50, which is reasonable considering some places serve up the classic for a tenner.
Why not enjoy this with one of the fantastic creative cocktails such as its summer special Screwballs to the walls or their praise of the rays, both of which look like the essence of summer in a glass?
The Alchemist is not the only spot playing with the classic fish & chips, a mini-golf venue in Hull Lost City Adventure Golf is serving up a Hull staple with its chip spice cocktail Spice Spice Baby which includes tequila, Cointreau and pineapple juice served in a glass rimmed with chip spice.
