Hirds Family Fisheries is an award winning Fish & Chip takeaway with a difference. It is situated at the top of Jubilee Road, Siddal in Halifax and has a menu made for everyone, even fish haters. They received an award for best takeaway in Yorkshire back in 2018 and also received FOODit Best takeaway, which was awarded for their chorizo fries and pesto mayo – something I need to go back and try.
Hird’s serve up amazing fish and chips, fish fried to order! Alongside a unique specials board of homemade pies, halloumi and more. The board even tells you about their produce and suppliers. There is something for everyone.
Last Friday, we decided to finally give them a try. Between three of us, we ordered a larger fish and chips, a large fish, medium chips, the fish goujon burger, fried halloumi and 2 sides of Irish curry sauce. Which all came to a reasonable £20. Everything is fried in sustainable palm oil and nothing was greasy – which is great!
Starting with the fish and chips, the portion was huge and everything came piping hot. The fish had a lovely crispy batter, and the fish was flakey and perfectly cooked, along side a generous portion of crispy chips. Perfect with a side of their Irish curry sauce. Something I haven’t had before, as I usually go for Chinese-style curry sauce. This was similar but more tangy, with a kick.
My sister decided to try something different and went for the fish goujon burger, with rocket, homemade tartar sauce, on a brioche bun. The tartar sauce was some of the best I have ever had and she agreed. The fish, again, was cooked perfectly and worked great as a burger – like a posh fish finger sandwich!
FRIED HALLOUMI IN A SMOKED PAPRIKA BATTER
As soon as we saw them on the menu, we knew we had to get some fried halloumi to share. The halloumi was deep fried in a smoked paprika batter, served with a side of sweet chilli sauce. These were AMAZING!
Overall Hirds Family Fisheries in an outstanding takeaway, possibly one of the best in the area! Their menu is diverse, cooked fresh and delicious. They also serve freshly made donuts with a choice of sauce – just like the seaside. Perfect for a summers day (if we get any)
