As we're well into the Lenten season, I'm sure many of you are looking for a Friday fish hook up. I'm not positive why Catholics adhere to a pescatarian diet on Fridays, and after a quick search, there's certainly a lot of bickering about it. But, it really doesn't matter anyway because eating seafood doesn't need religious validation. At all.
|fish and chips at the Londoner|
So, we've cast a wide net, filtered through the muck and have some of the best spots in Dallas for fish and chips.
Strictly for entertainment proposes, I surveyed our resident bloke, Gavin Cleaver, on proper fish and chips in Dallas and he wanted to go on record as saying, "... selling fish and chips expertly cooked at a price point above $5 is to totally misunderstand the nature of British fish and chips."
So, with that, we'll carry on with a list of this misunderstood British fare.
Many British and Irish-inspired spots push out baskets of fish and chips all day (The Old Monk, Trinity Hall, The Idle Rich, etc). But, of those, Observer food critic Scott Reitz fancies the fish and chips at The Londoner and listed the dish (photo above) as one of his 100 Favorite Dishes in the city: "The Londoner's version sports a thick, crispy crust that's not too oily, which encases dense cod that breaks apart into massive, meaty flakes. Chips play more than a supporting role with a generous portion of potatoes cooked just right."More »
