England Food Review, Part I: Fish & Chips

Tanyas Fish Bar in Barnes, down the street from Ben & Yaz's place.

A perfect, portable packet of food.

Haddock, chips, mushy peas and ginger beer. The peas were so hot and liquidy when first opened that they were nearly inedible, but as they cooled I found them to be pretty good. Fish was awesome, chips just the right mixture of salt, vinegar and absorbed fish essence. Ginger beer nice and spicy. All consumed on the bank of the Thames.

Posh Fish on Walton Street in Oxford.

Cod and chips and mushy peas. Mushy peas some of the best I've had, sweet and flavorful. Fish was a little bland, chips not enough vinegar. But none of that mattered when the fish and chips were combined with the peas.

Good array of generic sauces.
