Yorkshire Fish & Chips by Lake Merrit Review

Diamond Dog | Oct 12, 2006 12:32 AM

I ate there today. I think its on Grand.

I didnt think it was greasy or heavy enough which means you guys will all probably like it.

When you order the 2 piece, its cut into about 6 strips. I wish they would just have bigger peices. The batter is very very crispy when you bite into it and not very heavy. I thought it was panko or something, but its not. You can tell the cook who makes it really cares. hes kinda slow and I think does an order at a time. He cant put just multiple orders in the fry vat as I think its too much for him to handle and he wants it to come out right. It comes with Chips and a greek salad that was wonderful.

You can select fish, from catfish, tilapia or cod. Cod is the best for Fish & Chips IMHO, so I went with that. It was juicy, but I like my cod more gelatonious and slippery. This was dense and more like halibut, which i think all of you will like.

I would go back. They have really interesting sodas too. ginger beer, inka cola (tastes like bubblegum), etc.
