I love good fish and chips and can never find them.
I looked up Elise's examples and found that the Robin Hood Pub was close by. So, that's where I had lunch today!
I should realize that when a menu offers a 1/2 price plate that it means the full size plate is large. Here's my plate: (Ignore the drink)
When it was served to me I thought that they're serving me 2 hunks of fried bread. Little did I know that beneath that crispy coating was very light, tasty Icelandic Cod. DELICIOUS!
I was only able to eat only one piece. The coating was brilliant! Crispy doesn't come close to describing the crispiness. What intrigued me was the shape. The bottom of the fish which I didn't photograph was round like a twinkie. It didn't have the fine, weblike crust like the top did. It's almost (or maybe it is) like they lower the battered fish into the oil while in some sort of a holder.
When the waitress asked how I liked it I said "It's delicious, What kind of batter is this?"
Her answer: "It's a secret recipe and I can't tell you".
Well I tried. I'll also try again because thanks to Elise I found a new place for lunch.
