My friend came down for a visit from London, ON. He fancies himself as a food snob, but he likes places like Applebees, Cora's, TGIF, etc. chain places. Mediocre food in clean and bright and cheery standardized places.
I told him we were going to Heather Bell which is our city's best kept secret for Fish and Chips.
We were greeted by a friendly elderly lady who cooks, cleans and handles the register..efficient and friendly.
So he orders Fish and Chips as he told me he had an hankering for it for a while, and myself, I ordered a burger.
Well, i see her cut up the potatoes, take the fish out of the fridge, batter it, and put it on the fryer and make the burger. Freshly made.
We get our food. OMG. Awesomness.
Potatoes: crispy, thick cut, and fresh--no pre-fab frozen ones.
Fish--tender and crunchy, crispy wonderful. I had a bite. He said he quite liked it.
Burger-HUGE..beefy, fresh, just salt in the meat..on a toasted kaiser with a piece of ice berg and thick cute of beefsteak tomato.

The decor is shabby and falling apart, but to me it has charm that i really enjoy.
