Is roast beef and Yorkshire pudding or fish and chips the national dish of Great Britain?
The Brits in Toronto crew did a highly scientific and well-planned test to find out: we Googled it. As you can see from the results, these two dishes feature very prominently, with some curry in there too.
The jury is still out. But as Mel Waiters sang in his really popular song that all the cool kids are raving over, Friday night is fish fry. Ooooh yeah, baby. Can ya fry it?
The best fish and chips — hands down! — is McNies’ fish and chips. You’ll have to jump in the motor and travel 20 minutes west … but it’s worth it. And don’t let their website from 1997 scare you. The food is top notch.
Observe: Chips = big fat Brit-style ones, not fries. Crispy batter. Scottish. Mushy peas, haggis and black pudding washed down with Irn-Bru.
Want more? OK: Clam strips and chips. Steak and kidney pie and gravy. Scots meat pie and chips with gravy. Scallops and chips.
Chips, chips and more bloody chips. You better like chips.
Open seven days a week. Takeaways available. Free parking around the back. It’s a win-win for all fish and chip lovers everywhere.
We give this chippy a Brits in Toronto 4/5 stars.
