An ultra-violet beat-infused den of iniquity…and chips. Where else could you find fryers doubling as DJs and acid house-inspired t-shirts for sale behind the bubbling vats of fat? Yet, while on paper this might sound like some sort of Caledonian culinary Faliraki, Piccante’s has a certain roguish charm which draws in a diverse age range of diners, and they produce a mean fish supper to boot. The uninitiated should not fear their trademark deep-fried Mars Bars either – in Paris they’d call it a chocolate crêpe.
