  • The Chippy

True to its name, the signature dish is the reason to come here. The protein comes crispy and flaky on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. The fries are enormous; eating one, as a friend remarked, is like consuming one-fourth of a whole potato. Amazingly, The Chippy even manages to make mushy peas taste good. Beyond fish and chips, it also serves up enormous British breakfasts and heart-attack-inducing desserts such as deep-fried Mars bars. In a little shop behind the costume-selling stalls on Pottinger Street, Chippy has an endearing hole-in-the-wall ambience. Now for the not-so-good part: the prices. The cheapest fish, the sole, goes for around $80 on its own ($95 with a set lunch), while the halibut is $115 and the cod, $130. Yes, the portions come with a heaping serving of those massive fries… but still. On a recent night, the cod tasted significantly better than the sole. Guess you better be ready to pay if you want the good stuff.
