10 Of The Tastiest Chippys In Glasgow
We’ll be honest if you will Glasgow. We adore chippys, half pizzas, sausage suppers, king ribs, even a good old fashioned roll and chips, love them all.
If they didn’t knock off about ten years of your life every time you munched into one, we’d have one for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. Still a wee chippy every now and then never hurt anybody.
After the pub, nothing beats a half pizza and chips, not even a mighty pakora.
