This is how Fish and Chips should be. The quality of the ingredients and the way they are cooked is exactly what I expect from a great chippy.We had a sit-down meal (having booked in the morning when we were passing - given how busy it is I would definitely recommend booking) and the service was attentive and fast enough given how many of us we were.The decor is traditional chippy, you don''t come here for a romantic candle-lit dinner for two. It''s busy, it''s relatively loud but even my Northern friends can''t take it away from this chippy - there are excellent fish and chips to be had down south.
I had been wanting to eat from here for the past five years - I live in Australia and don''t get to Covent Garden very often! - and was therefore very excited to go there again recently. The fish and chips are amazing, good quality fish, yummy chips - however it is very expensive!!
作为英国的“国菜”及英国饮食文化的重要组成部分之一，Fish&Chips店可以说是遍地都是,Rock&Sole Plaice可以说是fish&chips的代表了。这件店店面不大，一般用餐都在室外，惬意不少。“高档”些的Fish&Chips店，用什么“鱼”，吃什么“鱼”，也是很讲究的，因为鱼的口感不一样。这家店也如此，鱼分为COD、HADDOCK、ROCK、SKATE、HALIBUT、LEMON SOLE等，店员会向你推荐COD和HADDOCK，这两种是这家店做的最好的，另外推荐搭配Mushy Peas，英式传统搭配。差不错一套下来15镑左右。也可以Take away，时常我们也可以注意到店外拍着一大长队等着Take Away的人们，其实很多人来这家店，更多就是冲着它的历史和名声，因为就算做成“金子”，毕竟它也就还是Fish&Chips -_-丨
The Rock & Sole Plaice！伦敦现存最古老的炸鱼薯条店，1871年开业，现有鳕鱼、黑线鳕鱼、鲽鱼、鳐鱼等多种选择，味道居然着实不错。话说炸鱼薯条的前身、老菜“炸鱼面包”原是具像化的《圣经》五饼二鱼梗，法国人发明薯条后，这一新的神组合很快便固定下来
