I'm calling bollocks that fucking London has one of the best chippies in the UK. Proper bullshit.

I used to work around the corner from Mickey's in Paddington. They have a sign in the window as recommended by Heston Blumenthal on BBC 2. The truth was, he filmed in there, probably based on location. It was shit. That said, Sutton's is often lauded as one of the best so I wouldn't write it off. But in general, London Chippys are shit.

This could've gone in many threads but this it where it lives.  

Down in London today seeing clients and one of the girls insisted we go to some supposedly cool and super-nice eat-in chippy as she reckons it’s the best she’s ever had. Told her I’d go along because

Being a Heston nerd I looked into why he went to that restaurant, as he's pretty principled about his research. 

For the making of In Search of Perfection (fish and chips), he wanted to interview David Blagden, fishmonger to the Queen. He wanted advice on which fish fried best, how to prep it, which cut to use. He gave him that advice but under the proviso he did a segment in David's own London chip shop. It probably isn't a great chippy, but that's how he got the advice. 

Chippy tea thread had its first birthday yesterday. Each plate still looks and tastes great. Looking at piles of brown food never gets old!

Got a chippy tonight - this one has a great reputation to the point that it won the award for best chippy in Scotland last year.

Pros - Fish is enormous, an absolute leviathan

         - Chips are the bollocks

         - All fish is made to order and it tastes phenomenal. 

Cons - While there's way more chips than can be seen in the picture underneath the massive fish, still way too few chips

Chips! 1, 2, 3.....8 of them!

Delivered?  

Are you some kind of southerner or something?

Fucking hell, who is against getting food delivered? That's the ultimate takeaway because you haven't even had to leave the house! Don't you have Just Eat, Deliveroo or Ubereats past the Watford Gap or something?
