Rock & Sole Plaice
Set in the bustling Covent Garden district, Rock & Sole Plaice delivers everything one could desire in a traditional chippy: enormous filets of fresh cod fried in a light, crispy batter and thick chips that are crunchy on the outside and bursting with fluffy, buttery potato on the inside. Top that with an ice-cold lager and what many regard as the best tartar in town, and it’s little wonder tourists and Londoners alike are vying for a spot in the cozy main dining room or outdoors at the sidewalk picnic tables. Succulent steak pies and perfectly spiced saveloys satisfy non-fish eaters, as well.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
