The Real Thing

An outfit called London Fish and Chips opened recently at Ibn Battuta Mall, and this lunchtime I got around to test-driving it.

It's exactly the same as an English fish and chip shop, except in England
1) The chips are chips made from potatoes, not French Fries made from who knows what
2) The batter can be detached from the fish - it is not welded on by some mysterious culinary process
3) There is the possibility of augmenting your meal by the addition of mushy peas and maybe a deep-fried Mars Bar to follow.

A valiant effort which can only be enhanced if the operators actually visit a real fish and chip shop in the UK, or even The Chippy on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Well, strike that one out for me, it sounds ghastly.

Finz at Ibn Battuta is absolutely amazing, fine, restaurant quality food for mall prices.

Indeed it is, did I not mention it in a previous post? Got blog-fever here, can't remember what I've written! Finz is indeed utterly splendid, there are folks working there who really know how to cook; we loved it.
