The Fish & Chips Shop

There are no deep fryers out front, nor the waft of malt vinegar emanating from old newspaper, but Barcelona now has a modern take on the British chippy in the form of The Fish & Chips Shop.

Two Pakistani brothers are offering lightly battered fillets of sustainable, line-caught hake nestled with fresh chips in newsprinted cones. They also have a deep-fried avocado version for vegetarians. Both are served with traditional tartar sauce, mango chutney or yogurt sauces, all of which are homemade. With a more local flavor, there’s calamari in its ink sandwiched with aioli and smoked salt, or a fat salt cod burger.

The Fish & Chips Shop is about more than licking satisfied, greasy fingers though. It’s an airy café bar serving up good coffee with a colorful cupcake or breakfast pastry, a lunchtime bikini or gourmet sandwich, Sunday vermouth or a strong cocktail to start the long night ahead.
