During our recent trip to England, we made a study of Fish and Chips. Here were our most fun experiences.
Our first Fish and Chips turned out to be the ones we like the best of our whole trip. During a walking tour of Bath, we passed a chalkboard sign that said “Best Fish & Chips in Bath.” At the end of our tour, we went back to The Garrick’s Head Pub where we enjoyed the tasty fish and the perfectly cooked chips (crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside) alongside the traditional mushy peas, which, it turns out, that we liked!
I was determined to get Fish and Chips, wrapped in paper. I got my chance at the Black Country Living Museum. Hot street food on a cool day made a perfect lunch.
We met a chef on the train from Bath to Birmingham who suggested that we try Purnell’s in Birmingham. We got to the pub side of the restaurant for lunch one day and had an interesting, and delicious, fusion version of Fish and Chips — with a curry dipping sauce!
