Fish and chips, Fish n chips, Fish & chips
Fish and Chips was made popular in England. The basic menu is deep fried fish, which has normally been cod fish and fries. The fish is deep fried in a batter. There are many variations of batter mixes.
I have tried fish n chips in London in many places in Ontario and in my home province of Newfoundland Labrador. My wife and I thoroughly enjoy, Ches’s Fish and Chips as well asScampers in St. John’s NL.
We have had many meals of fish and chips since I started this post. The latest was at By The Beach Restaurant in St Phillips. Aug 11/17. I had heard rave reviews about their food and as we were in the area on Friday we decided to stop there for supper. The restaurant was extremely busy, being a friday and it was a sunny warm evening. You place your order at the counter and find a seat where possible. We ordered a one piece fish and chips each. If I had thought about it, I would have ordered a two piece, to share as one piece was enough and we never finish the french fries.
The order arrived within twenty minutes. The fries were home made and plentiful. The fish had a slight crispy batter and was quite good.
My preference is still The Seaside, however; we would go back with friends to the By The Beach Restaurant. You can read a review, by food critic Karl Wells, here.
The Seaside Restaurant, in Chamberlains NL is where we usually order take out. We’ve had fish and chips, from their take out menu a number of times, while home on vacation. We returned to Newfoundland, in Sept 2014 and have ordered fish and chips many times and always enjoy the meal.
Our latest take-out from Seaside..a two piece fish and chips
The best meal of fish n chips we had was at Jackie’s Restaurant and Take Out in Rocky Harbour NL. The batter was not too thick or greasy and the fish was mouth watering. The fish was flaky and white. Our son, who has eaten fish in many parts of the world and has eaten at some high class restaurants said “this is the best fish that i’ve ever eaten”. It was simply delicious.
