when I was a kid, growing up in LA, my parents used to take me to a place called Bit O' Scotland the fish was just perfect. Maybe not so perfect but the haze of many years made it look great. However, I have gotten plenty of thumbs up from older indivuals , and their memories are much better than mine. When I was older, I discovered Kings Head in Santa Monica. This place probably has the best fish and chips I have ever had. Since I have lived in SD I have just not found great fish n' chips. Shakespear and POW in LI were ok but not great. Fish Market and Karl Strauss were pretty good but the atmosphere was not quite right for good fish n' chips. Any other suggestions? Has any body tried Penny Lane? How about the Field? My spouse loves Shepards Pie. Can any place do this as well?
