For reasons unknown to me, I have been craving fish and chips. But if I’m going to eat F&C, I want it to be really good – I don’t want to waste what I would consider a real indulgence on greasy fish or limp fries.
I feel like I’m in a fish and chips wasteland. There’s an H. Salt but I don’t want fast food. I like Smitty’s for fried fish quite a bit, but they have lousy fries. I enjoy the food at the California Fish Grill (same parking lot as what I still call the Fox Hills Mall) but they do a better job with grilled fish or tacos and their fries aren’t worth it. I’ve had the fish and chips at Joxer’s Daly, but don’t remember really loving it. (I actually don’t like eating at JD, just having a drink. I always feel like they serve food there but would rather not serve food there.)
A web search suggested Tangaroa, but that feels more upscale than what I’m looking for.
I dunno – maybe I’m craving something that doesn’t really exist – maybe I like the idea of fish and chips more than I like fish and chips. That said, I’d very much appreciate any fish and chips suggestions anyone might have that specifically takes location into account. My starting point is where the 405 crosses Culver Boulevard.
Thanks in advance, much appreciated.
