Stein's Fish and Chips Padstow
The first name in British fish, Rick Stein’s outpost on the Cornish coast is a lesson in how good fish, batter and potato can be. Fried in beef dripping, with a homemade tartare sauce that’s as good as any you’ll find, his fish and chips are simple, yet served with complete elegance that belies what you’d expect from the British staple. Not surprisingly, all the fish is landed on the restaurant’s doorstep. The hake, monkfish, John Dory, bass and, of course, cod are all worth ordering. We suggest going as a group and asking for a sharing platter for the table. It’s as close to a British fruits de mer as you’ll ever get.
