Fish and Chips is something that I have really missed since I moved to Bangkok, which is rather odd as I am not usually a huge fan of eating anything that comes from the sea. Thankfully there is a great restaurant on Sukhumvit Soi 11 that serves up some tasty catches with what I would argue are the most delicious fries in the world.
This isn’t your usual greasy cafe where you get a mound of slightly soggy chips in newspaper, although the dishes are served on print, which definitely made me smile. There are over half a dozen different fishes to chose from, and thankfully a short description on each one, as my seafood knowledge doesn’t stretch much beyond cod… The fish are caught from the seas around New Zealand and include the wonderfully named Tarakihi and Silver Trumpeter. The fish is served either battered or breaded with either tartar or garlic dipping sauce.
Fries come in three varieties: standard cut, thick cut and the most awesome of all, that I am sad I didn’t discover till I was 29, Kumera fries. Chunky, delicious wedges of sweet potato, fried and served with sour cream and chilli dipping sauce. I have been thinking about them far too often since we had our first bowl, and I keep wondering if it would be acceptable to go back and just have a portion of these and nothing else. Alone, so I don’t have to share.
