There are many ways to devour the greatest vegetable in existence (don’t @ us): the humble spud. But what if we told you that a London restaurant is paying homage to potatoes in the form of a Christmas dinner made entirely from chippies.

HipChips, a restaurant dedicated entirely to gourmet crisps, has launched a holiday menu that transforms all of your favourite holiday eats into a chip-laden three-course meal.

For starters, guests will be treated to smoked salmon and pickled cucumbers, followed by a traditional turkey feast for main and, to finish, a sweet Christmas pudding with rich brandy sauce – all in chip-and-dip form.

Drinks are taken care of, too. Restaurant staff have carefully paired the dinner with a choice selection of beer, wine and cocktails for guests to enjoy.

Potatoes are cut and cooked in front of patrons, with a variety of heritage and vintage potatoes used to add to the fanciness. It’s an experience like no other.

Understandably, it’s not for everyone – taters gonna tate. If you don’t fancy the Christmas menu, other chip creations on the menu include Katsa curry, smoky cheese fondue and even cheesecake.
