You need not travel hundreds of miles or empty your pockets on an expensive plane ticket to experience authentic fish and chips. Luckily for Montrealers, we have the perfect fish and chips restaurant called Brit & Chips in not just one, but two locations.

As early as 1860, fried potato from Scotland merged with fried fish from southern England and voila, a world-renowned dish was created. During World War II, a lack of rationing on potatoes and fish made fish and chips a staple meal in every household because of its availability and affordability.

Take out or sit down, inside or on their quaint terrace, both Brit & Chips locations proudly serve the best fish and chips on the island. Their Popcorn Tandoori Shrimp ($6) is the perfect way to begin your meal. Bite size shrimp, fried and seasoned to perfection, burst in your mouth, accompanied by a delicious, house-made tartar sauce. Although haddock is most widely known as the go-to fish for this dish, Brit & Chips serves up a different flavour batter for five different kinds of fish. The Sour Cream and Onion Sole ($10 for fish or $12 with chips) is their crowning glory. The sole is flaky and tender and marries perfectly with the tangy and salty batter. Another delicious option is the Maple Syrup Haddock. This meaty fish is perfect for deep-frying and subtle notes of maple make this a dish anyone can enjoy!

Finally, let Brit & Chips wow you with their dessert. Their Deep Fried Whatever is a deep fried chocolate bar accompanied by soft serve vanilla ice cream. Their chocolate choices vary but if Oh Henry is available, get on that!

Sit back and enjoy this time-tested dish and let the professionals at Brit & Chips wow your taste buds and your belly to England and back.
