A country of manors and roadside inns- the United Kingdom is possibly one of our favorite destinations if you are looking for tradition. On the other hand, aside from the wide range of local beers, it is not the place we would go looking for haute cuisine. However, restaurants in London have more traditional British dishes than you may ever have thought!
A new generation of young chefs is being inspired by high quality food and is taking advantage of Britain´s delicious produce.

Dating back to the 19th Century, fish and chips have become an iconic part of British culture. This delicious dish normally consists of battered and deep fried cod served with a generous portion of chips seasoned with salt and vinegar. Often they are complemented by a side serving of gravy, mushy peas, ketchup, curry sauce or tartar sauce.

Fish and chip shops (informally known as “chippies”) are a common sight in Britain’s coastal resorts and other towns and cities, frequently operating as takeaways but sometimes with a restaurant attached. Traditionally speaking, the food was once wrapped in newspaper but nowadays you can expect a polystyrene box or kitchen paper, along with a wooden fork.
