A new chippy has opened in east Hull - but it does more than just fish and chips.
The Fish and Chips @ Big T's restaurant opened last month just off Sutton Road, near the B&M Home store, but quickly changed its fish and chip menu after realising it's not all what people want.
It has since added burgers, sandwiches and big full English breakfasts to the line up, where diners can eat in or takeaway.
Joint-owner Gigi Kattou, 57, who has been on the fish and chip scene for almost four decades, said he wanted to do something different by opening for breakfast as well as "top quality fish and chips" at a low price.

Speaking about the venture, Mr Kattou said: "We want to provide a top service, which is quick to serve and is of the best quality, but then we decided we also want to do breakfasts and fresh coffees.
"At first we didn't really have an identity because there are so many people doing fish and chips, so we wanted to be slightly different and cater to others.
"We still want to make authentic chips from scratch, and get all the potatoes and fish from local sources.
"We work on quality and want the best potatoes and best fish and use a Hull supplier for that."
The restaurant is all Hull-themed which Gigi says is down to his love for the city following his successes in others fish and chip takeaway outlets, which include Fab Fish in Cottingham and Funky Fish in Brough.

A portion of haddock and chips starts at roughly £3.45 - rising to £8 depending what you want to accompany your dish.
Along with Gigi, his partner at the restaurant, Mark Downs, 55, said: "Gigi and myself have done this for a long while now, both our parents had fish and chip shops, and we know what works.
"It's great to be opening another restaurant in Hull. We can't wait to see everyone in there."f
