Best Fish and Chips (Dallas)

My husband and I were wracking our brains the other day to try to remember where we have had good fish and chips. I'm talking the light, tempura like batter... not corn meal. Fried cod or halibut or something... not catfish or tilapia. Just the classic Brittish fish and chips. Any suggestions?

  1. It's not something I've eaten at a lot of places around town but I had it at the Fillmore in downtown Plano and it was pretty good and as you described.

      Seconding Fillmore's fish and chips, I'd go either there or Trinity Hall.

    2. Old Monk or Idle Rich - same owners...great fish and chips!!

        Totally agree! Old Monk, Idle Rich, and Black Friar. All the same owners. Nice portions, crunchy fish, good chips, and lots of malt vinegar!!!!

          Drooling over memory of this fish and chips. I've been gone from Dallas over 4 years and still think of this often!

      2. Didn't have it but I saw it at Fox and Hound bar. It looked really good, but like I said I haven't tried it.

        1. The Fish and Chips at the Porch are the best I've had so far. Really, Really good.

            I second this. Don't let the high price keep you from ordering it, however. The portion is absolutely massive (4 large battered fish filets and a mound of fries) so you can split the plate and the cost with a friend.

          2. Another vote for the Fillmore Pub, also Lochrann's Pub in Frisco..

              wow really Lochrann's the culinary group ate there and universally thought it was awful. Horrible flavor profile and so so fry quality.
