We have many impressive eateries in the city centre, offering cuisines from all over the world - but a decent chip shop is much trickier to find.
So it is welcome news that a Tasty Plaice is opening in Birmingham city centre.
The fish and chip restaurant chain, which has four other sites across the UK including Merry Hill in Dudley, will open at Grand Central in April, next to Nando's.
Co-owner Pardeep Toor opened Tasty Plaice at Merry Hill shopping centre in Dudley in 2009, offering “fresh cod, haddock and plaice along with mouth-watering kebabs and our trademark chips.”
Expect all the other usual chip shop favourites - scampi and chips, chicken and chips, sausage and chips and fish cake and chips. The chain also specialises in kebabs and vegetarian options such as vegetarian sausages and halloumi.
Tasty Plaice will be a welcome addition to Grand Central, after the closures of Handmade Burger Company last year and more recently, Square Pie.
New Lebanese souk restaurant Comptoir Libanais is due to open its doors in Grand Central in March - housed in the former Steel and Jelly fashion store.
Currently the most central fish and chips shop for Brummies is the Urban Kitchen on Hurst Street - which got a mixed review from our chip critic when he paid a visit.
