                Okay so you are saying they are not authentic fish and chips or are they? That would be beer batter cod not greasy. I am not looking for some kind of strangely spiced fish & chips that are Texas take....

                  Haddock is also widely used, as is pollock or coley; plaice; skate .... all depends on what part of England, Ireland or Scotland you are in. For batter, England generally uses plain water and flour with some soda and vinegar for the bubbly. Of course, as you noted, different varieties of beer is sometimes used.

            Zeke's in Fort Worth off of Camp Bowie would be the closest to what I have eaten back east. I have to amit that Sherlock's in Arlington has a different take on the ol' style fish n' chips with a puffy style tampura that's really pretty good.
