Fish, Chips, and PEAS!
Being originally from England, I'm craving a good Fish and chips. I know a couple of good places for this - but I'm actually looking for something more specific...! Is there anywhere in Toronto (in or close to downtown) that does the British traditional Fish and Chips served with peas?! Everywhere I know of serves with coleslaw on the side...but I want PEAS!!!!! :D
Oh, not mushy? That'll be harder to find. British Style (Dundas and Coxwell) has peas -- they are mushy, but less thoroughly 'mushed' than Chippy's.
I'm sorry I can't help. I haven't seen peas as a side in any of F&C stores I've been.
The place called Frank McNie's at Burnamthorpe and Martin Grove and High Street F&C on Underhill, near Lawrence and DVP (which actually IS Frank McNie's).
Bishop and Belcher, and English pub that used to be on Queen near CityTV did their fish and chips with proper (not mushy) peas - but I haven't been there since they moved to Church and Hayden... worth a call tho, I imagine.
I'm 99% positive St. Andrews offers peas with their f&c.

Of course you can find "peas" with your fish and chips at The Bishop and Belcher. It has moved to the corner of Hayden and Church Streets.
I'm a little late on this, but Pauper's on Bloor serves peas with their fish and chips. Lots of peas, I recall. The fish isn't bad, either.
