A spice bag (or spicy bag, spice box or spicy box; Irish: mála spíosrach[1]) is a fast food dish popular in Ireland inspired by Asian cuisine.[2] Typically, a spice bag consists of deep-fried spicy chips, chicken (shredded/balls/wings [3]), red and green peppers, sliced chili peppers, fried onions, and a variety of spices.[4] It is sometimes accompanied by a tub of curry sauce.[5][6][7][8] Available in Chinese takeaways and chippers since the 2010s,[9] the dish has developed something of a cult following. [10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20] It was voted 'Ireland's Favourite Takeaway Dish' in the 2020 Just Eat National Takeaway Awards.

Several chefs in Ireland have contributed their own recipes of the spice bag and its secret spice blend, including Chef Adrian, Kwanghi Chan and GastroGays (Patrick Hanlon and Russell Alford).
