Fish and chips
Deep-fried Mars bars
You no longer have to go to Changkat (or to one of those British pubs) for a plate of fish and chips; in fact, you can have the quintessentially English dish minus the pub crowd right in the heart of Subang's SS15 at Cor Blimey (that's its actual name). The fish and chips shop claims to serve the proper version of the fried battered fish, complete with chunky chips (with malt vinegar!) and minty mushy peas on the side.
While Cor Blimey does its best to stay true to traditional British fish and chips, don't expect the dish here to be exactly the same. Founder Adam Hanrahan, who grew up in the southern coast of England, admits that their location obviously makes it difficult to source the same types of fish as the English version, so instead of haddock, cod and plaice, Cor Blimey opts for dory and butterfish (which they get from a supplier twice a week), as well as the 'catch of the day' (locally sourced fish they get from the SS15 market). Another difference is in the batter; here you can choose lemon and herb or even curry flavoured batter, or just opt for the original. Adam also assures us that there's no beer used in the batter, while the fish and handcut chips here are made to order, so nothing is pre-made and kept frozen.
Other than fish and chips, the British-style pies are also Cor Blimey’s speciality, so a visit wouldn’t be complete without ordering the chicken and mushroom or fish pie (served with gravy and creamy mash). For snacking in groups, order the seafood sharing platter for a mix of battered fish and seafood, and wash it down with one of the restaurant’s homemade lemonades. For dessert, there’s (obviously) bread and butter pudding, but to keep things interesting, order the deep-fried Mars or Snickers bars (in which the chocolate is chilled before being battered and deep fried) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s something to tell your Scottish expat friend about.
