Why has The Fish and The Chip in Leicester decided to go 100% Pescatarian?


Firstly what is a Pescatarian Diet?

You may have heard about the diet term “Pescatarian” or “Pescetarian” (as some people spell it) but for those of you who haven’t – It is a word sometimes used to describe those who refrain from eating animal meat with the exception of fish and seafood.

So to break it down a Pescatarian diet mainly consists of vegetables, fruits, dairy and grains with the addition of fish and other seafood such as shrimp, clams, crabs, and lobster etc…What Pescatarians don’t eat for example is steak, chicken, pork or any other kind of meat. Studies have shown that the Pescatarian diet is on the increase with more people being aware of such things as cholesterol and wanting their protein to come from a healthier source as well as being more environmentally friendly than animal meat.

Therefore The Fish and The Chip being a 100% Pescatarian Restaurant has NO meat in the kitchen. Just vegetables, grains, a lot of flavours and fish and all our food it made by us from scratch to ensure that we know for certain what has gone into our dishes.

Why has The Fish and The Chip decided to go Pescatarian? 

Well since opening The Fish and The Chip in 2017 we have seen the increase in customers choosing more and more fish, vegetarian and vegan options with there being more and more focus towards improving health, diet and reducing the environmental footprint so as a brand we have wanted to capture that in our menu and give the customer what they want.

Our menu has been on a journey of development and we now have a menu that isn’t just “fish and chips” it is a whole lot more! Our restaurant menu has an extensive Gluten free range of dishes, healthy goodness bowls, unique delicious flavours, vegan and vegetarian dishes and if thats not enough we also have a 100% vegan menu from “plant & bean” (what is plant & bean?
