Hugo Manuel Alves Matos and João Narciso will represent Kiely’s on tv.

Chipper Kiely’s duo take on the best

Cork’s oldest chipper is set to feature on television screens tonight as they compete to be crowned the nation’s best takeaway in the coming weeks.

Kiely’s of Maylor Street will take on some of Ireland’s finest culinary talents as part of RTÉ’s new six part series, ‘Takeaway Titans’. Hugo Manuel Alves Matos and João Narciso travelled to Dublin earlier this summer to represent the Cork institution.

Mattie Kiely first opened the doors of his city centre establishment in 1940, and his long-standing traditions and standards remain following its relaunch under The Blue Haven Collection banner earlier this year.

The television series aims to showcase the incredible cooking talents, flavours, and menus from takeaway kitchens across Ireland.

Presented by Carl Mullan and James Kavanagh, the programme has lined up Irish chef Dylan McGrath, winner of Britain’s Best Home Cook Suzie Lee Arbuthnot, and members of the public to taste the delicious recipes on offer and act as judges at the end of each show.

Kiely’s will feature in the chippers episode tonight, in one of five heats that will also include Asian, Indian, pizza, as well as burger and chicken cooking. The winners from each heat then go forward to compete in the series’ final later this autumn.
