Fish and chips

Fish and chips in Galway

A lot of people don’t like fish and chips. Even people who enjoy fish in general don’t like this dish because of the vinegar, or traditional coating full of oil. In Ireland they serve fish and chips pretty much everywhere, but it’s not everywhere the same. To get a real traditional meal you have to go to some takeaway, preferably old with long history – its the best guarantee to get fresh tasty fish. In good takeaways (Like Jackie Lennox) they wrap the meal in paper and don’t use plastic bags – it looks totally wild, but tastes so damned good.

This fish and chips we got in some pub in Galway, it was tasty, served with tartar sauce and pea puree.
It wasn’t that traditional battered fish, more like lightly dusted. I didn’t even feel guilty for eating it)

Jackie Lennox’s chip shop

Rating: ★★★★★

This is the reason why we were climbing the Bandon road. Jackie Lennox’s is located in the middle of nowhere which kinda proves that one day in the past it was a full of life street. It’s a fish and chips takeway, and well, it’s the best in Cork. I didn’t manage to take any good pictures of the food, but just trust me on that ) They wrap freshly made fish in multiple layers of paper, they don’t use plastic bags, and when you unwrap it the paper takes all the oil and leaves you a very very unhealthy but incredibly tasty meal.
