Chef John's Fish and Chips

One of the restaurants on my staycation list is Chef John's Fish and Chips


It's been a Lemon Grove institution since 2004 serving up London Style fish and chips. Don't know about the London Style having never been to London myself, or pretty much anywhere for that matter. But that doesn't stop me from enjoying the foods of places I've never been.


This is the fish and clams with coleslaw and fries. The clams were really good one of the better parts of the meal and the fries pretty darned good too. 
I hear the sauces are made in house which is a plus. The coleslaw is o.k. not bad, just o.k. 

The fish was nicely done, not over cooked and nice and flaky and flavorful and a delight to eat once I peeled off the greasy batter. 

This is the fish and shrimp with fries and hush puppies,  OMGosh those hush puppies, if I go back there it will be for the clams and hush puppies. They had a nice crunch, well seasoned and tender inside. Just look at the size of those shrimp. 


Looks can be deceiving, after biting into one I had to look twice for the shrimp. Oh! there you are. They were still good and not greasy. 

Would I go back?  Yes, I'm a big believer in second chances and besides, those hush puppies keep calling my name. 

And that's that!
