Best Fish and Chips in Philadelphia?

nwtransplantne May 25, 2008 09:54 AM

I prefer fish and chips where the batter/breading isn't too thick. Any suggestions for good places in Philly? Thanks.

    I really like Eulogy's Fish and Chips. The fish is perfectly fried crisp and not greasy on the outside, piping hot and flaky on the inside and the "chips" / "frites" are also perfectly prepared golden crispy on the outside and smooth and silky on the inside. Yeah... good stuff...

      New Wave Cafe @ 3rd & Catherine Sts. in Queen Village. Fish and chips are mighty good... always on the menu and will satisfy any appetite!

        The Royal Tavern has it on special once in a while and it's great. It used to be on the menu regularly. I like Triumph's as well.

          Ten Stone has a nice fish n chips where the fish is slightly spicy and very lightly battered. Thank you.

            We really like the fish and chips at Aspen up in the art museum area.

              I've had the fish and chips at Aspen before. They're pretty good, but the fish tacos there are better...

            The Grey Lodge in Northeast Philadelphia has excellent fish and chips (and other excellent pub food as well).

              If you are willing to take a drive,go to Henry's Cafe in Pottstown.Although they are known locally for the place to go for innovative fish dishes,they have fish and chips on their regular menu.The cod is very lightly battered and is a favorite with us.

                I gotta say, the fish & chips at Cafe Avocado in Perkasie are pretty tasty. If you're in the neighborhood for a Sellersville Theater show, it's worth a stop by.
