What is Fish & Chips?
Fish & Chips is a hot dish of English origin, it consists of battered fish (atlantic,cod or haddock) and deep fried chips (fries). It is our most popular take out dish.
A bit of history:
Fish and chips became a popular meal among UK working class due to the rapid development of trawl fishing in the North Sea and the development of railways connecting ports to large cities during the latter part of the 19th century. This in turn made fresh fish available to be transported into heavily populated areas. Deep fried fish was 1st introduced into Britain during the 16th century by refugees of Jewish descent from Portugal and Spain. The 1st fish and chips shop was opened in London
