Kungs grillen, Stockholm, Swe

Where: Holländargatan, Stockholm (beside The Dubliner Pub)
When: January 25, 2010
What: Fish & chips, 67 kr (including taxes)

fish'n'chips from Kungs Grillen (Stockholm)

Here's a better example of fish'n'chips in Stockholm. Despite it not being in proper beer batter, the fish is thick cut and the chips are nice and thick.

The "dollop" of sauce would be remoulade. It just makes me think of my friend Denise who does NOT eat any cream sauces or mayo. This would be lunch in her nightmares. I, on the other hand, was ok with it up till the end when I couldn't quite make out which bits in my mouth were fish and which bits were remoulade.

I give this place a 3.5 out of 5 fishies.

Half Way Inn, Stockholm, Swe

Where: Swedenborgsgatan 6, Stockholm, Sweden
When: January 11, 2010
What: fish & chips, 125 kr (including taxes)

fish'n'chips from Half Way Inn (Stockholm)

I had wanted to get fish and chips at Southside Pub at Zinkensdamm but they weren't open till 4 and Fredrik and I were really hungry. The Half Way Inn is the first pub we found after circling the streets trying to avoid Hornsgatan.

The fish is... I really have no idea what kind but it was good. It's not the proper fish'n'chips batter but the Swedish fish'n'chips bread crumb coating. The yellow mush is curry flavoured tartar? sauce. I ate my fish with ketchup. Didn't get into the curry flavoured mystery mush.

I'm not saying that the fish was bad or anything but it just doesn't satisfy that need for proper fish'n'chips. The fish was actually quite good and would've been great if I was craving for a piece of fried fish. But alas, I wanted proper fish'n'chips.

Half Way Inn gets a 3 out of 5 fishes.
