Do you love fish and chips? Well, you haven’t really had fish and chips unless you’ve had it in the U.K. If you’re visiting London, you have to try one of England’s most popular dishes. The oily, fried goodness is delicious when you get it at the right places, but it’s pretty easy to mess up and lots of restaurants end up making it too soggy and greasy. These three London restaurants have arguably the best fish and chips in the world.
The Chipping Forecast
Does it get any more British than The Chipping Forecast? We don’t think so. Besides the fabulous name, this place allows you to choose between the oil the fish and chips are fried in as well as the batter. There’s beer batter, gluten-free batter, panko breadcrumbs, or grilled. Did we mention they guarantee the fish you’re eating has swam in Cornish waters less than 48 hours prior?
Sutton & Sons
You know a place is good when they have multiple locations in one city and Sutton & Sons has three in London. Not only is their fish amazing, they have homemade pickles and tartars sauce and an extensive vegan menu. Vegan options include tofish and “scampi”, banana blossom, fishcakes without fish, and mock “prawn” cocktails.
Not only does Golden Union have fish and chips, they also serve rock salmon, hot pies, coley, and fried fish. Their fish is also made to order in a homemade batter and delicious blend of oils.
