Catching Fish (and Chips)

London

A quintessential English fare, Fish and Chips consists of battered fish fillets (usually cod, haddock, or plaice) and chunky french fries, locally known as “chips.” The popular snack is customarily partnered with tartar sauce, mushy peas and pickled cucumber. From a newcomer in Brook Green to a long-standing family business in Muswell Hill, we’ve rounded up London’s crème de la crème of chippies (term for Fish and Chips shops). Get ready for a feast of fresh fish and hot chips!

Kerbisher & Malt (Brook Green)

London, United Kingdom • Recommendation • 15 June 2018

Despite being newer than other shops, Kerbisher & Malt has won Londoners’ hearts with its contemporary take on the good old-fashioned Fish and Chips. The fancy gastro-chippy serves sustainably sourced, prime fish fillets, which are either battered, grilled or cooked in matzo meal (unleavened cracker breadcrumbs). The superstar, though, are their chips—which may be the best in London—cooked twice for that extra crunch!
