This is for a series of posts related to a London 2014 trip including:
The Ledbury, Founder's Arms, Fishcoteque, Borough Market, Fortnum & Mason Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, Tayyabs, Giraffe: Heathrow, Park Plaza Westminster, & Wagamama: Heathrow.
The GF and I were around Waterloo Station one night, feeling a bit peckish for some fish and chips. We looked a good thirty minutes for a proper pub still serving food past midnight. Alas, none were available so we settled on Fishcoteque.
Located along a busy street, the atmosphere inside was cozy and adorned with plenty of marine decor.
Regular Cod & Chips [8.95 Pounds = $14.65]
The GF went with the cod and chips. The fish was clean, light, and fluffy, with the crispy batter lending a great crunch to each bite. There wasn't much, if any, seasoning, but there was nothing a bit of salt and vinegar couldn't fix! The chips were well-fried as well, with a creaminess within.
Regular Haddock & Chips [8.95 Pounds = $14.65]
The skin-on haddock was similar in texture, though with a finer flakiness and had some bones.
Mushy Peas [1.95 Pounds = $3.19]
The side of mushy peas were mushy indeed. More like split pea soup, the GF enjoyed them, though I thought they could've used a bit more seasoning.
The check came in a cute maritime chest, with a few chocolate coins to boot! FYI - cash only.
Service was friendly and Fishcoteque fit the bill for our fish and chip needs.
