~ A Curious Tale Of The Origin Of Fish & Chips ~ 🥇

Once upon a time, after pirating and treasure hunting had reached its peak popularity and had become the Get-rich-quick 💵 vocation of every young boy, there really wasn't much treasure left buried in thick jungles or deep underwater. All the pirates were poor, and unmotivated, and worse still, most of them were stuck in the middle of an endless blue, the great vast ocean 🌊.

A 👨‍🍳 chef on board one of these ships had a brilliant idea 💡 , they always hauled in lots of fish, and the crew were already sick of steamed/stewed fish. So he came up with a golden plate of treasure - the Fish and Chips. Meant to look like gold treasure, the dish was a hit among the seven seas and is now known as a good old classic.

Were these pirates, no sailors, mad? Probably. But this cool crib serves the good old classic with modern sauces like the masala, and its golden. "Mad genius!", I'd say. One of the servers have very smooth hair 🧛‍♂️ too, jus' sayin.

Trying this new place just cuz I'm in the area and cuz there's 1-for-1! ✌️

Featuring the Pesto Cream Dory Fish ($17.90), as it was the best dish! Texture of the fish was not like the usual Dory we have in Fish & Chips, it was firmer and it still had the skin on which allowed it to be crispy! The sauce had a very light Pesto taste which we cleaned off the plate with the extra fries we had.

Paired the deal with the Haddock Fish & Chips ($18.90). It was okayyy...

Also tried the Masala Fish & Chips ($17.90) as it seemed to be featured. This was excluded from the deal and it can stay that way, because we didn't really like it. We had a problem with the green sauce, so it was kind of weird.

Overall, not super impressed with the food, but since it was right in the middle of Haji Lane, the place will get points soely because it was pretty happening!

The food here is great! We had Masala Fish and Chips, and Sambal Fish and Chips and it was really savoury.

Had the Butter Beer as well. It reminded me of the one we had in Universal Studios. Maybe come up with a Carbonated version? Will support!

The combination of the sauces were spot on with the fishes, and the fries were hand prepped, with skin still on, even though we could do with more Masala sauce on the side with the fish.

Service staffs were friendly, courteous and felt welcoming throughout the entire dining experience.

Location was easy to get to, and felt cozy on the second floor, with the amazing deco around the shop.

Definitely will visit again! Keep up the good work guys!

Made a reservation on Chope and I’m glad I did because the restaurant was apparently full house for the night. When we ordered, we were told that food might take a while to be served, so at least they warned us. Thankfully, we had a lot to chat about so time passed pretty quickly while we were waiting.

The Cheeky Git is a cheeky name for a braised beef cheek dish served atop mashed potatoes. The beef was fork tender and my dining party was amazed at how soft it was. With Burpple Beyond 1 for 1 Main Dishes, this was very affordable and high quality. Would make a return visit for this dish!

Food was amazing! Love the Fish&Chips! It’s crispy, full of taste and I couldn’t get enuf of the truffle fries at the side❤️ the pesto cream fish was not to my taste as I prefer the fish to have a stronger taste, but the mash potato mix well with the sauce. Also, The Ribena with mint was an interesting taste as well!

We waited for a Long time for our food and even though we have no complaints, we were given an in house white chocolate cake to compensate our time, and because of the wonderful overall experience we would definitely come back again!

Fish was nicely battered, giving a good crispy mouthfeel. Fried were good. Though we prefered the relatively flavourful tandoori fish.
