You can't visit London and not eat fish and chips! So naturally I had to do my research and find a good place to dine at.

At first, I was a little turned off by the very commercialized look of the food and the gimmicky-ness of the brand, from the pre-fried, heat-lamped pieces of fried sausage and fish to the 50s decor and higher pricing.
