My Favourite Fish & Chips In Bangkok

Published

on

The Bangkok Fish & Chips Wars kicked off when Smiths on Sukhumvit Soi 13 and Busters further down at Soi 33/1 launched their new “chippy” menus a few months back and it has been a popular talking point ever since.

For years bars and pubs of all kinds in the capital have been knocking out this British favourite usually with a special at the end of the working week as was the tradition for decades in the UK to eat fish on a Friday.

Pub fish and chips are nothing like what you’d be served or expect in a traditional chip shop. Far from it.

Putting all on a level playing field with 1 very important must – the fish must be either haddock or cod – I have munched my way through dozens upon dozens of offerings all across the capital in the past few months.

Some fine, others have been meh, and many have been pretty damn good.

But one bar stands out from the crowd and ticks all the boxes for me.

For you, well, you might be looking for something different which is why I used “My Favourite Fish & Chips In Bangkok” and not “The Best Fish & Chips In Bangkok”.

So where does one find Stickboy’s favourite Fish & Chips?

The Old English Pub in Thonglor.

Those guys do it just the way I like it. A classic pub style F&C.

I’m no food critic or photographer so two things you won’t be getting are food blogger fluff and a photo of a dish that has been doctored to death.

What no mushy peas? No this? No that?

As I pointed out already, we are all unique and like things to suit our own tastes.

But the chips are frozen and not hand-cut… exactly what I’d expect in a pub. If I was at a “chippy” I’d be mortified at being served frozen chips.

At 385 baht some will cry a fountain of tears but listen up, you get what you pay for and this is worth every last satang.

Note, this is not a sponsored post, the food and drinks consumed were not comped and as always I paid my own bill.

A Smashing Sunday Roast At The Kiwi

Published

on

After scoring Scruffy Murphy’s Sunday Roast with a 9/10 Mick the manager at The Kiwi told me I MUST come in one Sunday and sample the roast lamb telling me it would knock my socks off, so a couple of weeks back that’s just what I did.

I went with Mick’s recommendation and ordered the lamb that comes in at 419 baht which includes a soft drink, or a bottle of beer or a glass of wine.

A bowl of soup arrives and I’m thinking, I didn’t order a soup starter but it’s all part of the price, so the lovely young lady serving me said. Nice one.

Now, my best guess was it was Pumpkin Soup but don’t hold me to that as I ate it so quick it didn’t touch the sides and I’m sure they mix it up week by week.

Once the soup was done with it was on to the main course. It arrived piping hot which will always score extra points with Stick as I like my grub roasting, pardon the pun.

Damn it was delicious.

Mick was definitely not pulling my chain when he said it was the business. I could have eaten a plate of just the cauliflower cheese alone never mind the rest of it.

I didn’t do any extras this time around as I was stuffed after the soup and main.

Fat Face opted for the Phad Thai and it got the thumbs up with not a crumb left on her plate.

Other options on the menu include a half chicken or pork roast for 299 baht or there’s beef priced at 349 baht, and just the same as the lamb, you get a drink of your choice with each.

It is certainly value for money and a decent feed in my book.

Note, this is not a sponsored post, and as always I paid my bill. Yes, I’m mates with Mick the manager, but finding a bar where I’m not on friendly terms with either the staff, manager, owner or all 3 is a rarity around Sukhumvit.
