Poppies kind of confuses me. I get that it's meant to be the most tourist-friendly place to consistently serve delicious fish and chips in London, but the retro 1950s decor goes right over my head. I know the owners claim that the decor harkens back to post-World War II East London, but it creates a discongruence for me because I feel like I'm dining in a kitschy American diner.

Usually, every fish & chips I've had, the batter was too thick and it fell off the fish, which is a... more
