Shrimp & Chips Fries Fire Crab Orange County OC Cajun Grub Garden Grove

We showcased our Fish & Chips before so now it's time for us to talk about our Shrimp & Chips. We butterfly cut our shrimps, lightly bread and batter them and then deep-fry them to perfection. We serve them up with some chips (fries) but you can always upgrade those to cajun fries or sweet potato fries for only another dollar. It's definitely something that can be shared because it's entirely a finger food. Anybody at your table with fingers can eat it. If they don't have fingers, then that means more for you. It's a great appetizer as you await your cajun seafood combo.

Fish & Chips! Sub the Chips For Sweet Potato Fries!

Fish 'n Chips Sweet Potato Fries Garden Grove Cajun Restaurant OC Orange County Fire Crab

Originally, Fish & Chips is a British dish. They called their fries, "chips." Well, we've taken this British classic and added a Cajun twist to it, and then threw in a little Southern California flavor to make it all our own. Now you can get the Fish and Chips as it is, with our regular fries, or you can get them with any of our 6 other types of fries, including our oh-so-popular sweet potato fries. We pride ourselves on giving you options and having 7 different types of fries (or chips) is a pretty good sign of that.
