miss ene eats: Smiths

The boy took me to the ‘Smiths’ at Tanjong Katong over the weekend. It apparently serves authentic British fish and chips. I’ve eaten ‘real’ fish and chips in London but it was a long time ago and my memory is a little hazy. I remember it being pretty delicious though. Then again, it was about 2 degrees so anything hot was going to be good.

We decided on the Cod & Chips to share. Like its British counterparts, it came wrapped in paper. At $18 a pop, it doesn’t quite qualify as fast-food prices eh? I’m a little confused by its strategy of charging $18 for fish and chips which is pretty dear. Then again, the boy shared that they apparently import their flour from the UK as they couldn’t find the right match in Singapore.

It was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Pretty darn good, I’d say. The thick-cut chips were also pretty authentic (i.e. did not come from a frozen pack). On the table were salt and vinegar which are traditionally used on British fish and chips.

If you’re looking for an authentic fish and chips in Singapore, I’d say this is pretty good. However, the price may deter most people and I’m not sure how many will return for a 2nd visit.

  1. Wow, $18 per serving is pretty steep. How would you compare the taste to Fish&Co which is half the price and Astons’ Express which is… $6? Cos I’m pretty happy with both the latter! Love paper-wrapped fish and chippies, but $18…. ouch!
