For years, we've been told Jews invented Fish and Chips and brought it to Britain sometime in the late 19th century and while we are proud of this fact, it seems that when it comes to fish and chips today, it's the Turks and Greeks who are leading the way.
One of London's finest Fish and Chip restaurants and a must visit for anyone who loves fish is The Inn Plaice.
Only open in the last 12 months and located in North Finchley close to the Arts Depot at Tally Ho Corner, Turkish-owned The Inn Plaice serves a great selection of fish, fried or grilled and of course in batter or matzo meal.
If you thought grilled fish was taking a piece of cod and putting into your grill oven, think again. This is full on grilling over a charcoal grill and the taste is sensational.
Eat in or takeaway, the choice is yours. Eating in and you can delight in the various set menu dishes which include starter, main course, dessert and coffee/tea.
There are two set menu options available, the most expensive costs £16 which given the choice on offer and the size of portions makes it one of London's best bargains.
Starter highlights include fresh tomato soup or meze selection including homous and taramasalata, main courses include the regulars of cod and haddock and desserts include various cakes as well as Turkish style specialities.
Want to takeaway? No problem. For under £5 a head you get a nice piece of fish and a huge portion of chips.
Although this is not a kosher restaurant, there is no meat products served, though they do offer some non-kosher fish to those who may be tempted.
The Inn Plaice is at: 330 Ballards Lane, London, N12 0EY.
