Im from England and cant seem to find a decent place to get fish and chips in LA. Help.
The Kings Head at Santa Monica and 2nd in Santa Monica. Great fish & chips and plenty of your countrymen watching football.
Down the street from The Olde Ship in Fullerton is the British Grocer. I was @ the British Grocer (after lunch @ Cafe Hidalgo) and bought me a box of Fox's Chocolate Viennese. They carry an assortment of snacks, teas & some refrigerated items.

(Went to the Olde Ship last night to take advantage of the free birthday dessert [sticky toffee pudding]. Anyway, their fish is cod and haddock.)
Brit's is sparkly clean, all the furniture is new and everything matches, and (worst of all!) the peas they serve are a bright, clear green, instead of the proper faded-khaki color...and of course NOBODY is smoking. If you can get past all that, it's a decent pub. And the fish & chips are very good. The batter is very puffy, but quite light and crisp, and I think the potatoes must have a bit of a coating on them as well.
