Fish And Chips Find Their Plaice

47 King Street West goes for the unusual and it works

Published on June 27th 2013.


Fish And Chips Find Their Plaice
 

COD, haddock. They're the staples of the battered fish world. 

It's a clever take on a classic, that because of the distinctive sweeter flavour of plaice delivers a rewarding experience. 

Solid, hearty fish that flake under the golden crust like glaciers calving into Arctic seas. 

But there are alternatives.

One of the most interesting - and a real tradition back in the day on British coastal resorts - is plaice, lightly battered. This delivers a more delicate and nuanced experience than the chunky cods or haddocks. 

Delivered with finesse, for example at 47 King Street West, then plaice really works, especially with this restaurant's, light, seasoned beer batter.

Of course battered fish requires those stalwart sidekicks of top notch chips, homemade tartare and proper sturdy mushy peas. All are delivered here for £11.95. Malt vinegar please though, folks. Come on keep it real. 

This is a clever take on a classic, that because of the distinctive sweeter flavour of plaice delivers a rewarding experience.
