So let me begin by first pointing out that Fish and Chips is one of my favourite take out foods I much prefer it over a burger oppppsss did I say that out loud.
Being Brit it is something of a tradition to have Fish and Chips on Fridays, I mean I even remember the school dinner menu accommodating for this dish.
Even though the dish is very popular in the UK, you will be both surprised and shocked on how hard it is to find a good Chippy as they call it.
So here is a small list of great chippy’s that I have found over time:
Quality Fish Restaurant- This is a new find and boy it’s a good find. Located on Kings Street in Richmond Upon Thames. The other half recommended this as it’s close to his work place. At first I was a little apprehensive as the chippy itself is very dated think 70’s style deco. However the food oh my god the food….the fish is fresh, crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside. The chips were chunky and cooked golden brown. If you can make the trip South West London it’s well worth a visit.
Big Bite- Another keen favourite as they do fish bites for some of us (me) who can’t finish off a whole cod or haddock prefer this option. The fish is always in big portions and the chips are fresh and fluffy from the inside.
Nautilus Fish- This is a traditional family run chip shop/restaurant, a little on the expensive side but well worth a try. Located in North West London, always very busy but once you are at the counter to be served what welcomes you is great service and even better food. The fish is pretty much made to order so there is a little wait the only downside is that they are a little stingy on the chips.
Radleys Fish Bar- The fact that I make a trip here whenever I am up north is saying something. I am not a big fan of their fish but the chips that’s where they have my loyalty. They are the best chips I have had ever crispy, well-seasoned, and fluffy from the inside and the best thing of all they are reasonably priced or maybe that’s because they are cheaper than London prices.
Cyprus Fish Bar- This is an old favourite of the family and it has every reason to be, the fish and chip are both of good quality and the fact there is a line every evening is a sign that you can’t go wrong here.
So next time when you are searching for a great take out meal give one of the above a go, until then feast your eyes on the yumminess below.
