Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Love and care are lavished on every ingredient served in this upmarket but unsnooty chippy.
Perched at the zenith of London-based fish and chippery, Kerbisher & Malt works within pretty tight strictures. There are, after all, only so many possible variations on the theme of deep-frying seafood and potatoes. Hence, the kitchen team tweak every stage of the process to make the food as appealing as possible. This means high-quality fillets dunked in floaty-light batter, cooked freshly to order. Chips are double-fried, the tartare sauce is rich and made in-house, and the onion rings have been ‘pickled’, adding an appealing vinegar tang. So committed are the owners to transparency that they’ve installed a CCTV screen to allow punters in the dining room to watch the chefs slicing haddock and mushing peas. Extras are good too; fish finger butties, lightly spiced fish cake burgers with a twist of lemon mayo, and pots of piping-hot breaded calamares all add to the experience. The long shared table is permanently filled with families tucking into piles of pollock; regulars pop in for boxes of whitebait; and there’s a steady stream of custom from noon until 6pm, attracted by the early specials.
