Restaurants: Kerbisher & Malt

This modern take on the classic British fish and chippie in Shepherds Bush opened just three weeks ago. Chef and co-owner, Saul Reuben trained at the OXO Tower and Racine, and it shows. The food is delicious, with no greasiness at all. Choose from haddock, cod, plaice, coley or pollock which you can have battered, in matzo (a lighter batter) or just plain grilled, with a squeeze of lemon. Side orders include twice-cooked chunky chips, mushy peas and delicious salads such as fennel and dill or crispy calamari and whitebait.

It’s a small, bare-boned restaurant with seating for around 20 and when we went earlier this week, the small kitchen was rushed off it’s feet which meant a bit of a wait for our food. So if you in a hurry, we recommend that you call ahead and order first. There’s even a menu for kids with fish fingers and, as all the fish is from sustainable sources and the packaging is environmentally friendly, you can guzzle away without a bad conscience too.
