Beaches Duo: White Brothers' Fish and Chips and Ed's Real Scoop

  • r

Went with the family for a double-header in the Beaches last night.

White Brothers is as good as you've heard. The halibut comes encased in a light gold very crispy batter that tastes like tempura gone a bit North American. Excellent. Good fries, slaw and tartar sauce and a worthy Caesar salad with homemade croutons.

Go there! (But early. We arrived at 5, by the time we left, People were waiting for the few tables.)

Ed's Real Scoop is okay, but will never replace Greg's, in our entire family's opinion. The creme brulee and pumpkin pie are fine, but cannot be mentioned in the same breath as Greg's marshmallow. Ed's product is just not as creamy, nor the flavors as intense. It's good ice cream, just not Greg's.
