If you've had a chance to take a look at our previous post on the fish and chips at Harry Ramsden's in Edinburgh you can get a sense of all that can go wrong with fish and chips. Thankfully on our last day in London we finally had a fish and chips that lived up to the hype that we had come to expect from one of the national dishes of the UK. Located in Chiswick this restaurant has been around for a few years and has become a neighbourhood favourite for higher end fish and chips.
They do the traditional take away business but tucked behind the frying counter is a cozy seating area that is great for a nice sit down lunch or dinner with beer or wine. On our visit we decided on the two course lunch menu which included an appetizer and main course for only £8.50; a great deal considering the quality and quantity of food.
We started our lunch off with fried white bait and fried prawns. The white bait was delicious, fresh and not at all fishy while the prawns were tender and perfectly cooked.
For our mains, you could choose between several different types of fish. We settled on the haddock and cod. The Haddock was a more meaty fish while the cod was more tender and flakey. Both were cooked perfectly; retaining their juiciness and tasted fresh from the ocean. Served alongside tartar sauce and mushy peas or for the more adventurous, curry sauce it was an excellent fish and chips experience.
