Michael Huang, owner of Oppies Takeaways in Rotorua, was very happy about taking out the National prize for 2011, after being a regional winner in 2008 and 2009. He can’t believe how busy he has been since the award was announced. “People who have not eaten fish and chips for years come here because they know we use the healthiest cooking methods.” says Michael.
Speaking about his prize-winning chips, the Chip Group Chairperson Glenda Gourley say, “They are fluffy on the inside and crisp and golden on the outside and they are also low in fat.”
At Oppies, Michael chooses to use rice bran oil and makes sure his staff stick very closely to the industry standard guidelines to craft his famous chips.
