Fancy Treating Yourself To Dublin’s BEST Fish ‘N’ Chips This Weekend?

Fancy Treating Yourself To Dublin’s BEST Fish ‘N’ Chips This Weekend?

There are a few contenders. Super Miss Sue on the Southside has chips chops, as does any number of regular fish ‘n’ chippers whose locals swear blind by. Burdock’s was considered the reigning champion for decades, and credit where credit’s due, they certainly know how to fry a spud, they’ve been doing so since 1913 of course. But, for this writer, the finest fish and chip dinner/supper/lunch/brunch/snack/breakfast/anytime-meal in the city is only found at the suave Fish Shop on historic Benburb Street.

Fish Shop does what it says on the tin, but you won’t find much that comes from a tin at either branch (the other one, on Queen Street, concentrates on a scaled-up evening seafood tasting menu that relies mostly on what’s been caught that day). But back to the Benburb Street branch. Service happens in a cosy, pared-back, white marble room – it’s casual yet aesthetically-pleasing. There, you will also find the finest iteration of the humble dish so beloved of Dubliners (and anyone with a modicum of sense). The fish in the equation can change daily, depending on what’s been caught that day, but whatever it is, it is enveloped in a very accomplished (and top secret) light, crispy, batter that leaves most others for dust. The chips, although an incidental, are also fantastic. A very interestingly curated wine list and stellar staff complete the pretty picture. You can also get in and out for a very reasonable outlay. (6 Queen Street, 01 430 8594; fish-shop.ie)
