Fish Tank, Brighton by Bureaucrat

The best fish and chips that we've ever had was at Rick Stein's humble fish and chip shop in Padstow.  Although we had eaten dinner at his high-end Seafood Restaurant, his fish and chippery was streets ahead when it came to sheer freshness, availability (no need to make a booking!) and value - plus, you also got the beautiful (yet freezing) view of Padstow Harbour as you wolf down the freshest seafood, which was only caught that morning.

We've yet to find a place that equals Stein's Fish and Chip.  However, Fish Tank in Brighton comes the closest to replicating what we had in ye olde England.  Doubling up as a fishmonger and chippery, Fish Tank offers an impressive range of fresh seafood at very reasonable prices.  It is also a cut above the typical chippery as it has quasi table service.  You place your order at the counter, and your meals are delivered to your table on proper plates and cutlery - no plastic plates or forks here.

Fish Tank, Brighton, fish and chips, salad
I got a grilled fish with salad and chips.  The fish was fresh and succulent and perfectly seasoned.  The salad was also super fresh - I liked how you have about four gourmet options to choose from.  Chips were yummy and the tartare sauce appeared to be homemade (or at least it wasn't that gluggy stuff you get from a store-bought brand).

The Lawyer was very, very happy with his lunch.  He forgo the salad and got some juicy scallops and tender calamari to go with his fish.  Everything had the lightest of batter and was deliciously crisp and not overly greasy.

Yum!!  I so wish that this was our local chippery!  Well worth checking out if you're in the area - and I would also say, it's worth driving out to just to eat here.  Fresh fish, great service, reasonable prices.  Brilliant!
