Newfoundland Fish and Chips

Fish and chips, Fish n chips, Fish & chips 
Fish and Chips was made popular in England. The basic menu is deep fried fish, which has normally been cod fish and fries. The fish is deep fried in a batter. There are many variations of batter mixes.
I have tried fish n chips in London in many places in Ontario and in my home province of Newfoundland Labrador. My wife and I thoroughly enjoy, Ches’s Fish and Chips as well as Scampers in St. John’s NL.
Also we like the cod bites from Jay Jays (CLOSED) in Foxtrap and the delicious Fish N Chips meal we had at The Captain’s Table Restaurant on the Southern Shore.
The Seaside Restaurant, in Chamberlains NL is where we usually order take out.  We’ve had fish and chips, from their take out menu a number of times, while home on vacation. We returned to Newfoundland, in Sept 2014 and have ordered fish and chips a few times and always enjoy the meal.
The best meal of fish n chips we had was at Jackie’s Restaurant and Take Out in Rocky Harbour NL. The batter was not too thick or greasy and the fish was mouth watering. The fish was flaky and white. Our son, who has eaten fish in many parts of the world and has eaten at some high class restaurants said “this is the best fish that i’ve ever eaten”.  It was simply delicious.

The fish was haddock. Note: We contacted te manager and they changed back to their original recipe.
