Reading the name of this place, you’d correctly surmise that it’s a chippy. But the “tram” bit? Well, it’s opposite the town station of the Great Orme Tramway. Both tram and chippy were packed this lunchtime.
There’s cod, in both large and small sizes. The large overhangs a normal sized plate. The small sits coyly on a small plate. Both are perfectly cooked. Both have a crisp batter – not the crispiest you’ll ever come across, but crisp enough for most. Chips are excellent and a generous portion. Mushy peas are pretty much perfect – mushy but not a sludge nor are they a lurid green. Sauces are offered but nothing more than vinegar is needed.
By the by, FTC was a 1914 “top 3” in the Independent Shop category in the national Chip Shop of the Year competition.
