Liberally interspersing their excited tweets with hashtags like #hiphop #oldskool, Chip Shop Brixton are preparing to open up on the corner of Coldharbour Lane and Atlantic Road in Brixton.

The building – once home to the Black Cultural Archives and more recently Shaza Fried Chicken – has been given an impressive makeover by UK graffiti artist @Titlegraffiti, with several black cultural icons adorning theshutters and walls.

Run by the people from the Brixton Village Grill, we have to say that we’re not entirely sure how their message of “Old Skool Hip-Hop.. Positive Vibez Only” fits in with the concept of a chip shop, but we’ll certainly look forward to checking it out.

They’ve posted up some of their menu options on Twitter, and these include a ’10oz sirloin and chargrilled lobster’, ‘chargrilled tuna finished with an olive, caper and tomato relish’ and a ‘800g grilled red snapper, hand cut chips, rice, mixed salad, chilli lemon butter and dill sauce.’

That all sounds rather nice but does seem a world away (and most likely more expensive) than our favourite traditional chippie, the magnificent Jimmy’s Plaice some 300 metres down Coldharbour Lane.

Despite the business not being open yet, it has somehow managed to pick up 8 five star reviews on their Facebook which is quite an achievement.
